Here’s a look at some of the auction highlights and current bids as of Dec. 1 at 9:00 am ET.

Lot #1 – 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle Rookie Card PSA NM7 – Better know to collectors as the version from “The Rosen Find” — a trove of 1952 Topps high number cards uncovered in 1986 by hobby legend Alan “Mr. Mint” Rosen. (CURRENT BID: $120,000)

Lot #2 – Lee Harvey Oswald Arrest Handcuffs – These handcuffs were used by officer Ray Hawkins to arrest Oswald in the Texas Theater on November 22, 1963. These handcuffs are one of the very few significant JFK-Oswald items that are not in the National Archives. Since the Dallas Police Department made its officers and detectives buy their own handcuffs, Hawkins retained his private property after the assassination. These Smith & Wesson cuffs, bearing the serial number “38468” were originally issued to Officer Hawkins when he joined the Dallas Police Department in 1953. Hawkins used these cuffs throughout his entire career and retained them after he left the force. The handcuffs are accompanied by a signed and notarized affidavit from Ray Hawkins describing his actions on November 22, 1963 and the role these handcuffs played in the capture of Oswald. (CURRENT BID: $75,000)
