Small Traditions 3rd Annual Holiday Premium Auction In Progress – Ends December 5th

Final Week To Consign At 0% To Small Tradtions Holiday Premium AuctionSmall Traditions is proud to announce that our 3rd Annual Holiday Premium Auction is now open for bidding and will close in two weeks on Saturday night 12/5. We say it often, but it has never been more true: this is our best auction yet!  Bid, view and register at smalltraditions.com

In addition to the single most significant modern baseball card in existence in Lot #1: 2001 Bowman Chrome Albert Pujols Autograph RC BGS 10 Pristine Pop 1, the auction contains a wide selection of extremely high-end vintage and modern singles, dozens of #1 rated set registries, over 120 signed HOF baseballs, and several other pieces of signed memorabilia.

The auction also contains a small sampling from the recent “Tucson Find,” a staggering collection of nearly 4,000 different sports card albums, each housing meticulously hand-collated sets dating from the 1940s through the early 2000s. The remarkably well-preserved collection made headlines over the summer when it yielded the first-ever 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle card to grade PSA 10 Gem Mint, and which was reported to have sold for nearly $2 million. Small Traditions LLC has been contracted to help sort and grade the post-1980 portion of the collection, which we spent much of the month of November organizing and transporting from Arizona to Denver.

Our current 3rd Annual Holiday Premium Auction features only a minuscule fraction of the Tucson Find, including a half dozen cards graded BGS 10 Pristine as well as a nearly complete 1980s Star Basketball run, partially graded and broken into multiple lots. The vast majority of the PSA and BGS graded cards that have been culled from the collection, as well as a near countless number of complete sets, will begin to be offered over the holiday season on eBay and in the Small Traditions Store, where collectors can list their items for free while keeping them in their possession, paying just 9.5% on successful sales after confirmed delivery. Selections from the collection will then head to auction in our regular Monthly Masterpieces Plus events in January and February.

As always, please don’t hesitate to call or write with any questions or corrections, and someone will respond to your message just as soon as we can catch our collective breath. A lot of work went into this month’s auction, which would not have been possible without our trusted help, both here in Denver and in New York.

Most importantly, we would like to thank our generous consignors, without whom Small Traditions would simply not exist. Thank you for trusting us with your treasures, thank you for your generosity, and thank you for your kindness and constant encouragement.

To all of our customers, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving week and a very merry start to your holiday season!
