The auction begins with a legitimately historic offering, a PSA 5 (st) example of the legendary T210 Old Mill Shoeless Joe Jackson card. Among the rarest cards of a top player, this example is not even on the VCP site and we believe is the highest graded.

Baseball cards offer a good run of sets and lots, with note to a near-set of SGC graded T206 commons, a graded Southern Leaguer run, quality graded lots of 1949 Bowmans and our usual selection of 1950s through 1970s sets.
