Auction Alert Ending Date Change:Memory Lane Spring Fever Classics Auction Bidding Extended Until May 5th

Memory Lane Inc. is announcing today that it is extending the closing date of its Spring Fever Classics Auction by one week. Due to circumstances beyond our control with the United States Postal Service, it has been brought to our attention that some customers have not yet received auction catalogs. To ensure accurate and complete distribution, new catalogs were printed and mailed. We apologize in advance if you receive multiple catalogs because of this situation.Bidding is still live and will now end at 10 p.m. EST on Thursday, May 5. The auction had been scheduled to close April 28. Bidding is available via Memory Lane’s website or by phone (877)606-5263. Full color catalogs are available by request. An interactive version of the catalog is also available online.

The auction is jammed with rare sports cards and memorabilia from virtually every era of professional sports including a 1921-31 era game-used Babe Ruth bat. Minimum bid is $7500.

Beyond the Ruth model, the auction includes a wide selection of game-used bats from virtually every era and a cavalcade of stars like Cobb, DiMaggio and Maris.

Also offered is a baseball signed by both Ruth and Lou Gehrig, a relic from their barnstorming days of the 20’s. The ball is dated October 27, when the “Bustin’ Babes” and Larrupin’ Lous were in Santa Barbara, California. The dual-signed ball carries a $7500 starting bid.

Two original Yankees World Series rings are offered: a 1999 ring given to Jose Cardenal, then a coach with the Bronx Bombers; and a 2000 model presented to coach Carlos Rios

The Spring Fever auction includes a huge group of autographed Michael Jordan items. Offered are signed basketballs, jerseys, photos, shoes, cards, a cancelled check and even several baseball-related Jordan pieces, highlighted by a signed bat and an autographed White Sox jersey.

Five pairs of 2008 Eastern Conference Finals-worn LeBron James Nike shoes are up for grabs, all signed and authenticated by Upper Deck Authenticated.

Memory Lane’s usual bounty of rare, vintage sports cardboard is topped by multiple original Babe Ruth cards, including a 1933 Goudey #144 graded NM/MT and a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle graded PSA 5, the latter already generating strong bidder interest.

Hall of Famers Honus Wagner and Nap Lajoie are featured among an impressive group of 1899 Sporting News Supplements. A collection of rare 1916 Tango Eggs cards including Buck Weaver, Hughie Jennings, Hal Chase and Eddie Collins will be on the block as well as several rare 1933 Butter Cream examples. 19th and early 20th century tobacco and caramel cards up for bid include Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson and Collins.

Some of the best rookie cards are on the block as well, including top grade examples of the 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax (mint),1954 Topps Hank Aaron and Ernie Banks, 1963 Topps Pete Rose, 1948 Bowman George Mikan, 1965 Topps Joe Namath,1969-70 Topps Lew Alcindor, 1970-71 Topps Pete Maravich and a 1979-80 Topps Wayne Gretzky.

There is also a 1948 Leaf Jackie (“Jacky”) Jensen red back error (PSA 8.5), one of several high-grade ’48 Leaf football being offered.

A 1952 Topps wax pack (GAI 8), a 1954 Topps pack that shows a Jackie Robinson card inside (graded PSA 9 mint), plus 1956, 1957, 1960 and 1962 cellos and some 1950s Bowman wax are attracting the attention of numerous bidders.

A scarce 1948 Bowman black and white baseball uncut sheet with 36 cards including Stan Musial, Yogi Berra, Warren Spahn and Bob Feller is among the other unique pieces.
