The deadline for Mile High Card Company’s September catalog auction will be at the close of the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland August 1st – August 5th and one lucky consignor will win a drawing for a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA AUTHENTIC with a value of approximately $10,000.
For each $500 of value you consign to the September MHCC auction, you’ll earn one ticket for the drawing. The larger the consignment, the more tickets you’ll receive, but everyone who consigns to MHCC at the National will be entered. “Instead of just offering a bonus to the biggest consignor, we wanted every one of our partners to be in on the action. The ‘52 Topps Mantle is the pinnacle of post-war cards and we want every consignor to at least have a shot at it.” said MHCC President and CEO Brian Drent. Visit the Mile High Card Company Booth at #333 and #432 to submit your consignments and receive your tickets for the drawing.
The Mantle card will be given away at the MHCC booth on Sunday, August 5th at 3:00 PM. The winner need not be present and a video of the drawing will be featured on Youtube as well as the Mile High Card Company website at milehighcardco.com. Items of particular interest that we are currently seeking for the upcoming auction are as follows:
- High-grade PSA and SGC graded cards
- Significant pre-war rarities and memorabilia
