Mile High Card Company Auction Features High-Grade Complete Sets, Important Cards and Memorabilia

Following its highly successful January 2013 Premium catalog auction, Colorado-based Mile High Card Company is pleased to announce its Spring 2013 event, featuring over 1400 lots of tremendous material.The auction is live for bidding and activity has been brisk, to say the least! MHCC founder and CEO Brian Drent commented, “I’m not surprised to see this level of early bidding activity, as the quality of material being presented is truly remarkable, especially with regard to the PSA set registry.”

This auction centers around a very impressive conglomeration of PSA-graded complete sets straight from the highest levels of the Set Registry, highlighted by a jaw-dropping 1966 Topps baseball complete set that ranks #1 on the list with an unheard-of GPA of 9.25! Add to that a scintillating 1963 Topps master set that currently checks in as #4 on the registry as well as a magnificent 1959 Topps complete set that holds rank at #9 on the registry and you begin to get a feel for the quality of offerings in this sale. Not to be overshadowed by roundballers, an electrifying assortment of football cards are offered as well, not the least of which is a 1952 Bowman Small complete set that is ranked #2 on the registry. This amazing set is accompanied by an equally spectacular ’52 Bowman Large set that checks in as #3 on the list. Ice hockey enthusiasts need not look far for their collectibles fix either, as a head-spinning 1961 Topps set that occupies the #1 finest spot on the registry is presented, along with a 1911 C55 set and a 1954 Topps complete set that enjoy advanced rankings.
