Anyone know what the value of this Baldwin signed by Jose Iturbi? I'm trying to sell it for my sister.

I believe that's a model 914 from the early '70s. You could find out the age by looking up the serial number . . .

It's probably worth as much without the Iturbi signature as with -- certainly if you are selling on CL.

What it is worth is dependent on your local market. Where are you? Atlanta? Rural Montana? Small town Midwest? It varies.

Your most reliable way to determine local value is to check out a local piano store and see what real pianos are actually selling for. Internet info is attractive because it seems easy, but all to often worthless in the real world.

You could also get someone in to do an evaluation. There are reliable practitioners at www.ptg.org. Choose the "Find and RPT" widget

I have several 1940s Acrosonics signed by Jose Iturbi but I don't think his signature commands much anymore since most of his fans have passed away. Most Jose Iturbi pianos came with a poster of Anchors Away which he also signed or something in the time frame

One Christmas when I was about 11 or so, I got a record player and a LP of Jose Iturbi playing Chopin Polanaise in Ab. I must have played that over and over and over till it was scratched by the needle. LOL this thread brings back memories. Also, his sister was a concert pianist as well.

I also, when I was 11 or so, got a record player and a LP of Jose Iturbi playing Chopin Polanaise in Ab. It also had Clair de Lune and Granados Allegro de Concierto as I remember. It is not scratched and I still have it somewhere. Iturbi was a remarkable pianist with an effective fluid style.
