morphyauctions160Morphy Auctions, the finest auction destination for fresh to the market collections, is excited to announce this debut, full-day exclusively sports memorabilia auction to be held October 28, 2017.

Bid, register and view the auction at auctions.morphyauctions.com/catalog.aspx?auctionid=299.

Morphy’s October sale will offer an Olympic caliber selection of sports-related autographs, equipment, cards, ephemera, medals and trophies, and other items from the most collectible categories. Baseball card enthusiasts are certain to take note of three absolutely spectacular offerings in this event. The first, a set of T206 tobacco cards missing the big four, is estimated at $75,000-100,000. The T206 was issued in 1909 – 1911 through the American Tobacco Company. It is considered the “holy grail” of among many collectors. The second, a complete set of T205 tobacco cards, is estimated at $20,000-30,000. The T205, comprised of 220 cards, was also issued in 1911 through the American Tobacco Company and is second only to the T206 in terms of desirability. And a 1952 Mickey Mantle rookie card, estimated at $35,000-40,000, is certain to be a grand-slam with collectors worldwide.

This auction is also a perfect game in terms of its offerings of signed baseballs. A baseball autographed by the 1951 World Champion New York Yankees team is estimated at $10,000-15,000. This ball features a rookie Mickey Mantle signature. And a baseball signed by Babe Ruth is estimated at $6,000-8,000.

According to Dan Morphy, President of Morphy Auctions, “Tommy Sage and Kevin Bronson are not only encyclopedias of sports knowledge, but both have a passion for sports and sports memorabilia.” Tommy Sage, Jr. adds, “We are thrilled to launch this new specialty division here at Morphy’s. We will be holding two sales events per year – one in the spring, and one in the fall. Our goal is to become the go-to auction house for the world’s most exciting and interesting sports memorabilia, and this debut sale will undoubtedly launch us in that direction.” And Kevin Bronson concludes, “I am excited to be a part of this sale featuring several exceptional collections. It’s not every day that full tobacco sets are being sold complete and intact! Add in a mix of high grade signed Yankee Baseballs and important sports cards and you have the makings of a sale destined for the record books!”
