Today, beloved actor, director, author, and voice of ‘Galvatron’ in Transformers: The Movie, passed away at the age of 83. Thankfully, Nimoy’s autograph can be found in lots of different products in our hobby, with most being on-card and featuring great designs. Aside from Star Trek card issues like the one below, both Donruss/Panini and Leaf have issued multiple autographs of the ‘Spock’ actor.
One particular card sold for just $75 on February 22 just a few days before Nimoy’s death. Don’t expect those prices ever again thanks to the many autographs currently hitting eBay and collectors hoping to take advantage of beloved actor’s death. Like any other hobby rush, you can expect Leonard Nimoy’s certified autographs to drop down in price but not before the eBay vultures make their money.
You can check out Nimoy’s final tweet, composed just four days ago, below. TMZ reports Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease as the cause of death.
