A collection of beautiful T3 Turkey Red cabinet cards, including Christy Mathewson (PSA 4.5), Addie Joss (PSA 5.5), and a beautiful Tris Speaker (SGC 45), many of which are among the highest-graded examples available.  This collection is part of a much larger collection of Turkey Red baseball and boxing cabinets that we’ll be offering in our Winter and Spring, 2013 auctions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lajoie Painting Front

An outstanding assortment of baseball and football memorabilia, including display materials, paper ephemera, photographs, and decorative collectibles, highlighted by this stunning original painting of Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie by famed baseball artist Arthur K. Miller.

An assortment of other T206 rarities, including a Demmitt St. Louis variation, a Walter Johnson with a scarce Cycle 460 back, and a number of difficult backs including Carolina Brights, American Beauty 460, Brown Hindu, Cycle 460 and more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski

A large grouping of difficult-to-find 1935 National Chicle football cards, highlighted by the set’s key card, the coveted Bronko Nagurski.  The Nagurski is the hobby’s most valuable football card, available here in PSA EX 5 condition.  The auction also features a large group of highly desirable high number cards from the same set.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

E98s from the Rudy Strejc Collection

The Rudy Strejc Collection, a large, original owner collection of tobacco and gum era cards as collected by Rudy Strejc.  Raised in Portland, Oregon, Rudy Strejc was an avid collector  throughout the first half of the 20th Century, and amassed a collection of hundreds of baseball, boxing and non-sports cards, primarily from the early 1900s.  The collection features large assortments of Pacific Coast League cards including Obaks, Pacific Coast Biscuits, Zeenuts and more, as well as a large number of T206 and E98 baseball cards.  Also featured are several large lots of nonsports cards.

GameDay1

An outstanding assortment of autographed memorabilia, highlighted by this 1987 NFL “Game Day” program highlighting the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 1987.  The program features 46 signatures (including 42 Hall of Famers) accumulated over the course of several years by an ardent autograph collector with close access to NFL and MLB clubhouses.  Also featured is a Baseball Hall of Fame program with more than 20 signatures, a 1979 NFL Pro Bowl program with 16 signatures, a group of 90 3×5? photos signed by Brooklyn Dodgers players from the 1930s, a full-color 8×10? photo signed by Roger Maris, and more.

1991 Topps DS A Front

A complete set of 1991 Topps Desert Shield cards, perhaps the most scarce issue in recent memory.  It is speculated that just 6500 sets were manufactured, and many were lost in the fog of war and a purported warehouse fire.  Complete sets could only be assembled by hand from a limited number of packs that were made available to US servicemen stationed in Saudi Arabia during the beginning of the 1991 Gulf War.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The auction closes at 9PM EST on Saturday, February 2, followed by extended bidding governed by the 15-minute rule.  In order to bid on an item during the extended bidding period, you must have placed a bid on that item prior to the 9PM auction close.
