The Internet only auction through Sothebyâ€™s and SCP Auctions opens January 15, 2008. The sports memorabilia and card sale will feature more than 900 lots, and will close January 29-30.Â Both auction houses recognize the dynamic items in the auction. â€œIt is always exciting to present collectors with quality cards and memorabilia that are new to the marketplace, or from â€˜old collectionsâ€™ that have kept the material out of recent circulation,â€ Managing Director of SCP Auctions, Dan Imler said of the previously unseen items. The auction includes many T206s, including lots form the Allan Schwartz collection, a high grade 1912 S81 Silk #108 Christy Mathewson, 1914 Cracker Jack #30 Ty Cobb SGC 60 EX, and more. Other items feature legends like Roberto Clemente, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth.
