Memory Lane Inc. has produced what could be one of the southern California-based company’s best auctions ever. The Historic Rarities Auction is in progress with Babe Ruth memorabilia, much of it never seen before, dozens of high end vintage sports card singles and sets, and one man’s massive collection of sports and historic autographs. Those items are just the tip of the iceberg in the auction, which includes more than 1,300 items and will close August 18. Bidding will be available by phone or online at MemoryLaneInc.com.
Memory Lane has spent the past several months collecting what can best be described as a treasure trove of Ruth baseball cards and memorabilia, some of it never before offered for sale, including two Ruth rookie cards (a 1916 Sporting News PSA 4 and a scarce 1916 Famous and Barr SGC 10), a 1933 Yankees team signed bat and items from the collection of The Babe’s pioneering sports agent.
