Unopened Product Leads the Way in Collect Auctions
Instead of heading over to the case break pavilion at the National Sports Collectors Convention, sports card nuts might just want to head to the Collect Auctions’ booth, grab a catalog, participate in the upcoming sale and keep the unopened product to themselves.
Once again, Collect Auctions will offer a wide selection of unopened product in a sale slated to end Aug. 6 at www.collectauctions.com. Look for 1982 Donruss Baseball unopened rack and wax cases, 1983-85 Topps Baseball unopened vending case, 1985 Topps Baseball unopened vending case, 1986 Donruss Baseball wax sealed case, 1989 Upper Deck Baseball high-number wax box sealed case and 1990 Leaf Baseball Series 1 wax box sealed case.
If cases of unopened product are a bit much in terms of price and product amount, why not try some boxes on for size? Collect Auctions will offer a 1972-73 Topps Basketball wax box, 1978 Topps Baseball wax box, 1979 Topps Baseball cello box, 1986-87 Fleer Basketball wax box, 1987-88 Fleer Basketball wax box, 1973 Topps Baseball Series 4 wax box, 1974 Topps Football wax box, 1975 Topps Baseball cello box, 1976-77 Topps Baseball vending boxes, 1986 Topps Football rack box and dozens of other unopened product lots.
If you’re a collector of cards that have already been busted open and then submitted to a third-party grading service, some of the highlights will be a 1965 Topps Baseball complete set with PSA 7 examples of Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron, along with a high-grade complete set run of Fleer Basketball from 1986-89 with the coveted 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan graded PSA 8.5.
Collect Auctions will also offer high-grade complete Topps sets from 1960 and 1964-69, many with PSA-graded stars among the collective sets at PSA 7 and PSA 8 levels.

The autographed material keeps coming, highlighted by a Roberto Clemente signed 1964 Topps Giant card, Jackie Robinson signed 8-by-10, Derek Jeter single-signed ball with the “Captain” inscription and Ty Cobb, Frank Baker, Mickey Cochrane, Dizzy Dean multi-signed baseball (eight signatures in all).
Also look for a Thurman Munson signed 3-by-5 index card (PSA/DNA), Ted Williams game-used, signed Amyx Mfg. Co. bat from his time in the military and Ty Cobb and Satchel Paige single-signed baseballs.
There will also be a Nile Kinnick signed album page, 1953 N.Y. Yankees team-signed ball (26 signatures) and Hall of Famer-signed Cooperstown bat featuring 63 signatures, including Mantle and Ted Williams.
