Memorabilia, Autographs & Cards Highlight Memory Lane Jan. 10 Auction

memorylanelogo2014One of the best known sets of 1953 Topps baseball cards will be among more than 1,000 lots set to launch Saturday in Memory Lane’s 2014 Winter Auction.  Bidding is open and will close this Saturday, January 10. Full color catalogs are available free and registration is now open at on the Memory Lane website or by calling 877.606.LANE (5263).

The set, loaded with PSA 8 (nm/mt) cards, is part of a collection consigned by collector Gary Hughes, who has spent nearly a half century working in professional baseball. Currently a special advisor to the Boston Red Sox, Hughes has also consigned sets of 1953 Red Man Tobacco and 1953 Mother’s Cookies PCL cards to the auction. The Red Man set ranks third on PSA’s Set Registry while the Mother’s Cookies set ranks as the second best set. The 1953 Topps set is being sold card-by-card while the others will be kept intact.

The auction also includes a mouth-watering group of unopened vintage material including a 1960 Topps Baseball wax box, which carries an opening bid of $15,000. The series of the 24-pack box is unknown. Rookie cards of the two biggest latter 20th century sports icons are likely resting inside two of the other boxes in the auction: a 1979-80 O-Pee-Chee hockey box containing 48 packs that tempts with potentially mint Wayne Gretzky rookie cards and a 1986-87 Fleer Basketball box that likely contains multiple Michael Jordan rookie cards and other debut examples of numerous Hall of Famers. Each carries a $10,000 opening bid. All three boxes have been authenticated and shrink-wrapped by Baseball Card Exchange.

Bidding is open and will close Saturday, January 10. Full color catalogs are available free and registration is now open at on the Memory Lane website or by calling 877.606.LANE (5263).
