SCP Auctions Internet Auction Set to Open January 13, 2009

SCP Auctions continues to bring high quality cards and memorabilia to auction in its first of sale of 2009. According to David Kohler, President and CEO of SCP Auctions, the sale includes a large percentage of material that is “new” to the marketplace. “We constantly strive to bring in material that is fresh to the marketplace. Many of the sets and graded cards in this sale were only recently graded, and some of the most remarkable memorabilia pieces in this sale will be seen by collectors for the first time.” Kohler states.

Following several successful auctions in 2008, SCP’s January 2009 Internet Auction will feature a large collection from Dr. James Rice. Dr. Rice’s passion was the collecting and building of complete sets, covering virtually all the major issues from the early tobacco sets up thru the 1970’s. Among the many highlights presented from his collection are pre and post war baseball sets and singles and post war football sets. Pre War specifics include a 1909-11 T206 Near Set, 1909-11 T206 Eddie Plank, 1909-11 T206 Sherry Magie error, 1911 T205 Gold Border Near Set, 1933 DeLong Complete Set, 1933, ’34, ’35, ’36 and ’38 Goudey Complete Sets, 1939, ’40 and ’41 Play Ball Complete Sets and 1933 Goudey #101 Napoleon Lajoie.

Post War cards from Dr. Rice include a Complete Run of Topps Baseball Sets from 1952 through 1974, 1948 through 1955 Bowman Complete Sets and many Regional Sets. The vastness of the Dr. James Rice collection is such that SCP Auctions will be offering a second portion later in 2009.
