Heavy Bidding Continues in Mile High Card Company Auction – Closes Thursday March 21, 2019

Mile High Card Company’s March Auction opened to a record bidding and action has remained steadily heavy throughout, with the conclusion of the auction approaching fast on Thursday, March 21st. “We’ve already seeing some incredible prices being realized, along with a few record-breakers, and we’ve still got a few days to go,” said MHCC CEO and President Briant Drent. “With so many high-profile items being offered, we’re expecting some stiff competition well into Thursday night.”

Leading the charge is a spectacular 1909-11 T206 Near-Complete Set (477/520) All PSA Graded #8 on PSA Set Registry that stands at just over $79,000 with 29 individual bids in place as present, 1915 Cracker Jack Near Complete Set 110/176 Completely PSA Graded that just broke the $25,000 mark and a 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle SGC 7 NM that is on target to break the $100,000 barrier when the final hammer falls. Already sitting at record prices with a few days left are a 1922 W575-2/1924 Knight Motors Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb Uncut Panel currently at $9,435, 1923 Maple Crispette #8 Babe Ruth PSA 4.5 VG/EX+ with a present high bid of $4,560, 1966 Topps #1 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT at $5,518 and a 1990 Topps #414 Frank Thomas NNOF PSA 9 MINT at $10,774.

As expected, the selection of game-used bats, including one from each member of the 500 home run club, has seen spirited action with current highs including present bids for a 1939-40 Ted Williams Rookie-Era Game-Used Louisville Slugger Bat PSA/DNA GU 9 at $31,194, 2001 Barry Bonds Game-Used and Signed Sam Bat (73 Home Run Season) PSA/DNA GU 10 going strong at $11,858, 1982 Cal Ripken Jr. Rookie-Era Game-Used Louisville Slugger Bat GU 10 at $8,354, 2013 Mike Trout Signed Game-Used Old Hickory Bat PSA/DNA GU 10 at $7,594 and 1959-60 Eddie Mathews Signed Game-Used Adirondack Bat PSA/DNA GU 10 at $6,912. High-grade 1966 Topps baseball set-builders will be pleased to know that the 1966 Topps Baseball Near-Complete Master Set (587/612) #8 on PSA Set Registry appears as though it will be broken up as the sum of the singles presently stands well above the bid for the entire set, presently at an aggregate total of $51,158 with several cards still without an opening bid.
