Clean Sweep Auctions Vintage Card Auction Open – Ends Feb. 26th

Clean Sweep Auctions All Sports Auction Ends Dec 4-5, 2013The current Clean Sweep catalog features our always popular $5 reserve card auction. This auction offers a solid selection of many rare issues, type cards and other material not usually offered in this auction.  The auction is in progress and closes on February 26, 2014

We open the auction with several 19th century cards, including nine different Scraaps with HOFers Comiskey and Thompson. A very condition sensitive issue, these are great buys at current market levels. The auction continues with many T206s, including a Johnson Portrait in a 3, a Lajoie Batting in a 2.5 and a Young Portrait in 1. We have a collector grade E90-1 Cobb, many E99s and E100s and a run of clean graded 1910 Obaks.

The auction continues with a big selection of T205s, with most of the HOFers, with note to Cobb, Johnson and Mathewson. There is a run of low grade T3s, many T200 Fatima team cards, including all three keys: the rare Yankees, Cleveland with Joe Jackson and Detroit with Ty Cobb. There are two rare 1928 PCL Exhibits, an R316 Ruth, a W517 Gehrig and a 1933 Goudey Ruth. There is a big run of 1933 Sport Kings, including many of the high numbers. Highlights include Ty Cobb and the rare Bobby Jones card. There are several R301 Overland Candy cards and a many of the key team cards from the classic 1947-1966 Exhibit issue. Collectors of 1948 Leafs will see a solid run including DiMaggio, Rizzuto and Spahn.

Post-war baseball continues with many collector grade examples of the key 1950 and 1951 Bowman stars, and a good selection of 1952 Topps, from clean low number PSA 6s to 18 collector grade high numbers, including Jackie Robinson. We have much of the classic 1953 Bowman Color set offered as singles, with note to many high numbers and virtually all of the HOFers. There is a very good lower grade 1953 Topps partial set with many of the key cards as well. We have a selection from the underrated 1954 New York Journal American issue, including Willie Mays. There are also several scarce 1954 Wilson Weiners in lower grade, including the very desirable Nellie Fox. Collectors of Topps issues from 1955 – 1960 will see many clean HOFers, good partial sets and many clean second tier star cards. Various 1960s oddball issues and some common lots conclude the auction.

Our sale catalog has many very substantial additions. We begin with a full seven pages of autographs items. We have perhaps our biggest selection in our history of HOFer single signed balls, with multiple high grade examples of legends Aaron, Koufax, Mantle, Mays and Williams among so many others. We acquired an extremely advanced Brooklyn Dodger signed baseball collection, including many deceased gems that just never come to market. There is also an extensive selection of popular retired stars and several new oddball signed baseballs.

Autographs continue with an expanded selection of signed Yellow HOF Plaques, we broke both the regular Perez Steele and the Perez Steele Greatest Moments sets over the past few months, and there is simply a tremendous selection of signed photos.
