The current Clean Sweep auction is our unique to the business affordable all sports autograph, card and memorabilia auction. Nearly all of the auction items have a retail value of $500 or less and low minimum bids. This particular auction has been a particular pleasure to put together as there are all sorts of unique, interesting and fresh items throughout the auction.
The auction takes place over two days. Day one is all about baseball autographs. The auction starts with autographed cards, including a nice run of slabbed 1964 Topps Giants, desirable 1978 Grand Slam HOFers/ scarcities and a very strong run of signed Yellow HOF Plaques.
The auction continues with a very large selection of signed 8×10 photos, with emphasis on both HOFers and scarcities. There are some quality 3x5s and cuts, including a vintage Campanella. We have some fine looking full team signed sheets from the 1960s, signed equipment including a Koufax Cooperstown Collection jersey, many better signed cachets, including group lots and much more.
Collectors of vintage signed magazines and programs should love this auction, we have a fresh run of high quality programs signed by Aaron, DiMaggio, Mays, Stengel and Williams among many others.
Single signed baseball collectors will have hundreds of lots to peruse, including many very tough deceased players, a large run of HOF singles and many balls with desirable inscriptions. There are many better group lots of single signed balls at the end of this section.
Team and multi-signed balls close out day one. These go back to the 1930s, and offer a very eclectic mix of key teams, All Star Game balls and some top condition team balls.
