The highly anticipated April 19-20 Sports Card Catalog is just about off to the printers, the auction will almost certainly be one of the finest sports card offerings in history. While an astonishing 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA Mint 9 is at the forefront of the auction, it marks the first to be offered in 12 years. In addition, a captivating 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA Mint 9 is highlighted in the auction, which features nearly 2,000 lots. Even the most accomplished collectors will benefit from the wide array of offerings, including extraordinary unopened wax boxes and cases, and showcased by a 1969 Topps Baseball First Series Wax Box, 1978 Topps Football Unopened Cello Case and 1975 Topps Baseball Unopened Cello Case.
From pre-war sets, including an extremely rare 1928 Dockman & Sons “Star Player Candy” SGC Graded Set, to a post-war jaw dropping 1948 Leaf Warren Spahn #32 PSA Gem Mint 10 rookie, the auction is lined up to be a record-breaker. With countless crowd pleasers, the featured “Windy City Collection” boasts a remarkable 36 PSA-graded sets, and almost each ranks within the top five “Current” or “All-Time” finest on the registry. In addition, the “Windy City Collection” will consist of nearly 500 lots, and it will be primarily offered as single graded card lots — perfect to fill the void of any PSA Registry.
