Goodwin and Company would like to welcome you to Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LV. Spring is finally here after what seemed to be the longest winter of recorded time. Baseball is back along with outdoor grilling, gardening and all the other outdoor activities we have been longing for the past cold months. Our current auction is in progress and concludes on May 14, 2014. Bid, register and view the auction at goodwinandco.com.
Leading off our catalog is the only known copy of Babe Ruth’s rookie card with the obscure Green Joyce Sporting Goods advertisement on the reverse! There are no less than 10 lots featuring the “Sultan of Swat” including a marvelous 1933 Goudey graded PSA 8. Nineteenth century enthusiasts will find a smorgasbord of unique and seldom seen cabinets and cards. Baseball’s first professional team, the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, is offered with the rare team lineup printed on the back.
Hall of Fame pioneers, Candy Cummings, Albert Spalding and King Kelly can be found along with a group of exquisite high grade Old Judge cards such as the Jake Beckley graded SGC 8. Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial and Roberto Clemente have near complete sets of their Topps and Bowman issues offered as individual lots in high grades. Our usual array of T206 white borders, some with scarce backs and others with high grades, can be found in these pages. This covers only a small portion of the catalog so we hope you’ll find the time to peruse the pages more thoroughly for other treasures that await you.
Register and bid today at goodwinandco.com. The auction features over 350 lots and closes on May 14, 2014!
