Last Days: Memory Lane’s Holy Grail Auction In Progress – Ends May 5th

Memory Lane’s Spring auction is in progress with bidding on the more than 1000 lots underway and concluding on Saturday, May 5, 2012. Collectors have a chance to chase down the elusive Wagner card in Memory Lane‘s spring ‘Holy Grail Auction’.  For a free auction catalog and to register and bid, visit MemoryLaneInc.com or call 877.606.LANE (5263).  Highlights included:

The most famous trading card of all-time T206 Honus Wagner Sweet Caporal PSA 2 Good. The starting bid on the Wagner card will be $550,000.

The Wagner card isn’t the only ‘holy grail’ in this auction, however.

T206 collectors will tell you that the Eddie Plank card from that same set is often just as difficult to find as the Wagner. Memory Lane will offer a clean PSA 4 example of the Plank card in the auction, which closes May 5.

There are numerous other cards in the auction that are staples on the want lists of advanced collectors. An extremely rare W600 Sporting Life Christy Mathewson in uniform (PSA 3) —another very rare card from the early 20th century.

For collectors of vintage hockey cards, a high end example of the 1966-67 Topps USA Test Bobby Orr would certainly fall into the ‘holy grail’ category. MLI offers an impeccable near mint plus example.

Collectors of post-War era baseball cards will find a copy of the iconic ‘holy grail’ of post-War cards, the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle, this one a PSA 5, which should make it within reach of a large number of dedicated collectors. An amazing group of graded Mantle cards running the entire gamut of his big league career and a special binder with more Mantles are also among the lots .

As usual, Memory Lane offers dozens of card collecting’s most highly desirable cards, many in

ultra high grade. Babe Ruth cards remain extremely popular and there are several in the auction including a 1933 Sport Kings #2 in PSA 7, a 1932 U.S Caramel (PSA 6), a 1933 Goudey #53 (PSA 6) and a 1951 Connie Mack All-Stars (NM+). There is an interesting autographed Ruth piece—a signed mini bat promoting ‘Babe Ruth Athletic Underwear’.

It’s been more than a century since Ramly Cigarettes came out with what’s now called the T204 set. From a private collection comes every card in the Ramly, each one graded by PSA.

Interest in original, vintage Joe Jackson cards continues to grow. Memory Lane will present one from the same set that gives us the scorching hot Ruth rookie card; a 1916 M101-5 Jackson card in very respectable PSA 6 condition as well as a 1940 Play Ball in PSA 8.

Several other pre-War era stars are featured multiple times among the hundreds of listings including Honus Wagner (1910 American Caramel), Christy Mathewson (1913 National Game PSA 10) and 1911-14 Brunners Bread; Lou Gehrig (1934 Goudey #37 Near Mint) and Walter Johnson (1909 Ramly, 1915 Cracker Jack).

In addition to the ’52 Mantle, there is a copy of The Mick’s 1954 Dan Dee card graded PSA 8.5 and a 1956 Topps Yankees team card (PSA 9).

An unusual number of gem mint PSA 10 graded cards are offered including a run of 1970s Topps Hall of Famers in both baseball and football.

There are several 1953-55 mint and gem mint Redman cards including two Willie Mays.

Vintage hockey card collectors will see a selection of high-grade 1951 Parkhurst hockey cards including several rookies, while fans of the iconic 1986-87 Fleer basketball set will have a chance to acquire some gem mint beauties including the ‘holy grail’ of modern hoops, Michael Jordan, plus Charles Barkley (rookie), Karl Malone (rookie), Hakeem Olajuwon (rookie) and Larry Bird.
