Goodwin & Company June Auction Preview Now Available – Bidding Runs June 1-20, 2012

Goodwin & Company’s Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons XLI starts on June 1st and  closes on Wednesday June 20, 2012 which happens to be the first official day of summer. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the outdoors, baseball and barbeque. Goodwin & Company has selected 95 premium items for this auction and have scheduled our standard 800-900 lot catalog for next month which will end on July 26. There are no less than six quality Babe Ruth cards presented here including three 1933 Goudey cards of the “Bambino” graded near mint to mint.

One of the hottest cards in the hobby, the Babe’s rookie card with a rare Famous Barr back, is headlining at Lot #1. Other Famous Barr cards offered are Jim Thorpe, Joe Jackson and a seldom seen Frank Chance. T206 collectors will be excited to see seven white border Hall of Famers graded PSA 8 or better! They will also find Hall of Fame and common players with rare backs including Drum, Lennox and Uzit.

Don’t miss the Walter Johnson hands at chest with a Drum back. There are seldom seen complete sets such as a 1952 Parkhurst Baseball, a 1948-1952 master set of Exhibit Football and a Red Heart Dog Food set. Nineteenth Century enthusiasts will have a chance to bid on a rare Old Judge Jack McQuaid umpire card along with other high quality Old Judges displaying brilliant pictures and corners. Several mint Topps and Bowman cards, including a 1955 Topps Joe Cunningham graded Gem Mint 10 by PSA, are also available for your bidding.
