Tired of high quality vintage baseball cards and sports memorabilia? We didnâ€™t think so. Like you, Memory Lane Inc. is always ready for an auction and the company has just announced plans to bring forth another blockbuster catalog sale, this one set to close December 13th.Â While bidders mark their calendars for another volley of super high-grade vintage baseball cards and memorabilia from this industry leader, consignors need to heed the rapidly approaching deadline for including items they wish to sell. MLI urges consignors to contact them as soon as humanly possible to assure a spot in the widely distributed catalog.
Consignors know MLI simply wonâ€™t be outdone when it comes to marketing and exposure for your high quality collectibles. That effort results in top dollar for you.
Memory Laneâ€™s announcement of the December sale comes just weeks after the Tustin, CA-based firm brought the hammer down on another wildly successful event.. The September Classic Rarities auction saw $2.7 million worth of winning bids placed on some of the rarest and super high-end cards and collectibles.
One of the highlighted purchases was a game-worn, autographed 1973 Hank Aaron Atlanta Braves road jersey, which now resides in the Steve Myland Collection. The incredible jersey, which once adorned the back of one of the gameâ€™s most popular and beloved icons, sold for $24,342. Graded A10 by MEARS, the Aaron jersey joins other museum-like pieces in the Myland Collection, which is simply considered one of finest accumulations of sports cards and memorabilia in the world.
Over 1300 lots were sold in the auction, which closed September 14. The auction included the newsworthy sale of a PSA 9-graded 1910 E93 Standard Caramel Honus Wagner card, which brought a record-setting price of $218,549.99. A Mint 1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle rookie card was purchased for $88,125 while an 1887 Four Base Hits James Mutrie in PSA 5 condition sold for $83,092. A 1952 Topps Pee Wee Reese from the rare series and graded PSA 10, started a bidding war that ended at $53,462.
What can collectors look for when bidding opens later this fall? Try a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle in PSA 8 condition, a 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #144 (PSA 8), 1911 M116 Sporting Life Christy Mathewson and Walter Johnson (both PSA 9), a complete run of high-end Mickey Mantle cards (1951 Bowman through 1969 Topps), a variety of high grade Hall of Famer rookie cards, a large collection of Turkey Reds, plus amazing autographed pieces featuring Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb and many others.
