The phrase “Spring break” may conjure up images of college students, sandy beaches and non-stop parties but this year it means a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire some of the best vintage baseball cards from two important sets. Memory Lane features the sale of individual cards from two of the highest quality Bowman baseball sets ever put together. The auction is in progress and concludes on May 9th.
The headliner is a 1951 Bowman set, with all 252 cards graded PSA 8 or better including the rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. The cards will be sold individually, with the two icons joined by rookie cards of Whitey Ford, Nellie Fox, Monte Irvin and Jackie Jensen, a myriad of stars like Ted Williams, Duke Snider, Yogi Berra and Warren Spahn plus top shelf examples from the rare high number series.
Memory Lane sold a PSA 8 Mantle last year for just under $50,000 alone and a Mays for over $32,000.
Free auction catalogs are available upon request.
