The current catalog features the always very popular $5 reserve vintage card auction. Our sale section is greatly expanded, with a wide variety of autographs and cards available for direct purchase.
The $5 auction might be our biggest one ever, it is loaded with over 900 lots. There are an amazing 450+ lots of pre-war baseball cards, quality partial sets from the 1950s and some better 1960s cards, including several Mantles and Seaver and Ryan Rookies.
The auction begins with a few 19th century cards, including two Old Judges, a Scaaps and an N184. There is a solid run of T206s in the auction, with many PSA and SGC 5 commons. There are some quality HOFers, including Johnson, Speaker and Young, plus a Brown Hindu back. Pre-war baseball continues with a solid run of mid-grade T201 Double Folders and a big run of higher grade 1914 B18 Blankets. There is also a fine selection of 1915 Cracker Jack commons (with a few HOFers) and 1916 BF2 Ferguson Pennants.
