Memory Lane Inc is proud to be offering our Winter Premier Auction which ends on February 3, 2024. Bid, view and register for the auction at www.memorylaneinc.com!  Call us today at 877-606-5263 if you have any questions.

It’s not too often that an auction in our hobby is launched with two first-year National Baseball Hall of Famers in Ty Cobb and Walter Johnson examples, followed immediately by two generational Hall of Famers in Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays, considered the greatest players of the 1950s and ‘60s and two of the greatest of all time. But keeping with tradition, Memory Lane’s Winter Rarities Premier Auction catalog begins as such.

Open for bidding on Wednesday January 17th, this 120 Premier Lot auction features an amazing array of rare high-grade Hall of Fame talent, concluding on Saturday, February 3rd.

Starting things off with Lot 1 is none other than the Georgia Peach himself on his T206 Green Portrait card with a Piedmont back graded 7 NM by PSA. The rarest of the four T206 Cobb issues, the Green Cobb Portrait has been the favorite among collectors who have, of late, driven the price tag for PSA 7 examples to nearly six figures.

Lot 2 of Big Train just happens to reside at the top of PSA’s Pop Report as the highest graded example of a 1909 T204 Ramly Walter Johnson in a PSA 8 holder. The prospect of landing any 1909 T204 Ramly in high-grade can be a painstaking chore, not to mention a charter member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This highest graded Johnson is also nearly the highest graded Ramly as there is only a single issue graded higher of any subject.

Mantle and Mays from 1952 round out the top four. The Mick’s second-year card sits at Lot 3 holdered 9 MINT by PSA. This gorgeous 1952 Bowman #101 is a marvelous specimen with excellent color and clarity and a price tag to match with a previous PSA 9 example selling in excess of the half a million mark.

Lot 4 features the youthful Willie Mays on his 1952 Topps #261 holdered 8 NM-MT from PSA. Fewer than a dozen copies eclipse this PSA 8 of the Say Hey Kid portrait. The 1952 Topps release is easily one of the top five sets that collectors attempt to or wish to assemble and along with Mickey Mantle, Eddie Mathews, Andy Pafko, Roy Campanella and Jackie Robinson, this Mays anchors the amazing issue.

And speaking of Jackie Robinson, he rounds out the top five cards on his 1952 Topps #312 in a PSA 8 holder. The first fifteen lots are in fact all Hall of Famers and all considered among the best at their position including Ted Williams, Roberto Clemente, George Brett and Rickey Henderson.

In fact, you can find seven Mickey Mantle issues with none dipping below NM-MT 8 as well as 15 Willie Mays including 11 PSA 9s and three GEM MINT 10s of which ten stand as the highest graded. Others include nine Hank Aarons, five of which hold the highest grade and 14 PSA 9 Roberto Clementes and two GEM MINT 10s, four of which sit atop the Pop Report.

This amazing Premier Auction hosts dozens upon dozens of low-pop, high-grade Hall of Famer cards, many of which stand atop PSA’s POP Report as the highest graded in the hobby.

Highlights Include:

This Premier Auction has something for everyone with so many “Highest Graded” examples, it should warrant mentioning the title.

The auction closes on Saturday, February 3, 2024. Catalog and bidding information is available on Memory Lane’s Website, www.memorylaneinc.com! or by phone, 877.606.5263.
