The auction also featured two massive football card collections that were among the top-sellers: a 503-card signed football card collection spanning 1953-1984 that included 175 Hall of Famers, five of which were Johnny Unitas cards, that sold for $13,200; and a 1970s-2000s autographed football card collection (3,100+) which included more than 275 Hall of Famers and selling for $12,000.
