There are maybe 3 or 4 different Marquard styles, which you can probably attribute to the fact that he lived until 1980 and signed these cards for 60+ years!

I was guessing the variability was probably due to that in this case. Has anyone ever been able to date each of the signature types using anecdotal evidence, type of pen, etc?

Not to my knowledge. Sounds like a good idea, however. Most of the signatures you see are post-publication of The Glory of Their Times in the mid-1960s.

It appears, he signed many T206 cards, I assume he has the most known signed examples of any player? How does that effect value?

I also see a lot of variance across all examples. I question the authenticity of some, as they look like they were signed by different hands. I get the age factor, but I see different slants, styles, etc.

The only one that really shows different traits is this one, the rest are pretty consistent with how he signed over the course of time. I have been working on a small personal research project for a few months, and am now fairly certain that Rube's wife was signing for him for a very short period of time towards the end of his career, which previously hasn't been a concern. When I am finished with it I will eventually post a signature study on my site and the autograph section so that others can weigh in as well.

Wow. No wonder the last one at auction went so cheap.

Except it didn't! The one in Goodwin this week went for nearly $3,000, and I didn't even bid! I am fairly certain this is the highest price public or private for the sale of a signed Marquard T206. Given the abundance of signed Marqurds at auction, this can probably be explained by the beautiful condition of card and signature.
