Largest Ever Mile High Card Company Auction Runs March 5-22, 2018

Mile High Card Company’s Elite Extra Inning Auction Ends May 14th

While 2017 was the strongest auction year Mile High Card Company has ever had, MHCC is out to break records once again with the largest catalog auction in the company’s history. Over 2,300 lots are set to go live on March 5th and end on March 22nd.  Bid, register and view the auction at  www.milehighcardco.com/catalog.aspx

The auction is highlighted by a 1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 350/30 Eddie Plank PSA 2.5 GOOD+, 1932 U.S. Caramel #32 Babe Ruth PSA 8 NM/MT, 1965 Topps Baseball Complete Set #1 on PSA Set Registry and the 1991 Topps Desert Shield Complete Set #1 On PSA Set Registry, which was voted the 2017 Best Modern Baseball Set of the Year.

“This auction is tremendous!” said MHCC President and CEO Brian Drent. “In addition to our usual assortment of elite cards, this auction should be especially tempting to autograph collectors and early 20th century set-builders.”

The Brian Goldner collection comprises perhaps the most expansive group of late 19th to mid 20th century cards ever assembled in one collection. In addition to traditional cards like Goudey, Diamond Stars, T206, Cracker Jack and Play Ball, offered are high-quality cards from more obscure sets like Buchner Gold Coin, E102 Set of 25, Dockman & Sons, E101 Set of 50, Croft’s Candy, Nadja Caramels, Philadelphia Caramel, Obak, Briggs Co. Lozenge, American Caramel, Mello Mint, Standard Caramel, Tip Top Bread, George Close Candy, Brunners Bread, U.S. Caramel, Glendale Meats and T3 Turkey Red. Over 900 lots come from this absolutely astonishing collection.

The Sigurd Berg collection contains some of the finest autographs known, each obtained on envelopes and note cards by simply mailing away to the day’s greatest athletes in various sports and requesting an autograph.

Alexander Signed Envelope PSA/DNA 10, Cy Young Signed Envelope PSA/DNA 9, Ty Cobb Signed Envelope PSA/DNA 9, Honus Wagner Signed Notecard PSA/DNA 9 MINT and Tris Speaker Signed Envelope PSA/DNA 10 GEM MINT.
