Hello Chris,

I replied to your email as follows:

Value is based on past auctions and sales. It would be difficult to give an accurate estimate on value because of the following factors.

You have The "Entire Cardinals team" signed on a Cubs program. You did not mention if they are signed on the cover or on the inside. If it is on the cover it would be very crowded, and make a poor display (eye appeal) and Cardinals signatures on a Cubs program would not be desired. If the
signatures are inside they could be valued as "Cut Signatures" with each signature being valued on it's own merit. It could have a higher value this way.

Also if the signatures are not properly authenticated they could sell at half the market value or less. The grade and display of the signatures are important as well.

I did a quick check for 1954 Cardinals team signed program and only found this:1954 St. Louis Cardinals Organizational Guide Signed by Musial, Mize, Durocherhttp://legendaryauctions.com/lotdetail. ... ryid=50528

It sold for $256. but it is a good display. If the whole team signed that page the value would be lower. Too much noise. Overcrowded, bad display.

If your Cubs program is signed on the cover by the 1954 Cardinals team it will have a lower value than the auction above. (Not to mention the condition of the low quality paper used for the cover of the program) -Steven
