The Lelands Spring Classic Auction has 1000+ incredible lots of the finest sports memorabilia and cards, for you to view, consider, and bid on.  Bid, view and register for the auction at . The Holy Grail of TB12 Card highlights the Lelands 2022 Spring Classic Auction opens May 20 (7 PM EST) and runs through June 11, 2022.

An extraordinary pair of Michael Jordan 1985 Bulls Game-Worn Air Jordan I rookie era sneakers and a rare 1916 M101-5 Blank Back #151 Babe Ruth Rookie Card highlight the Lelands 2022 Spring Classic Auction, which runs through June 11.

The spectacular MJ game-worn shoes were worn either during the second half of his 1984-85 rookie season, the start of the 1985-86 season, or both – marking a time when both the basketball legend and his iconic Air Jordan shoe had exploded onto the scene in flashy fashion.

The Babe Ruth Blank Back Rookie Card is one of the most important cards in the entire hobby, and this 1916 beauty depicts Ruth as a young pitching phenom for the Red Sox prior to becoming “The Sultan of Swat” with the Yankees.

The auction also boasts a 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket #144 Tom Brady Rookie Autograph BGS NM 7 – Auto 10 – the greatest Brady card in existence – as well as LeBron James’ first-ever Lakers 75th anniversary “City Edition” game-worn jersey from December 3, 2021, and a Michael Jordan Signed 1986 Fleer Rookie.

Additional auction centerpieces include a 2012 Jimmy Butler National Treasures 1/1 Logoman Auto BGS 9.5, a 2020 Justin Herbert Contenders Optic 1/1 Gold Vinyl Rookie Auto PSA 8, a Steph Curry 2009 National Treasures RPA from 2015 Panini Replay, a 1998 Kobe Bryant Precious Metal Gems /50 BGS 9, a Wilt Chamberlain 100-point game ticket, and a Chris Paul 2005-06 SP Authentic Rookie 1/1 Logoman Auto.

The auction also features Tiger Woods signed badges from all five of his Masters victories, a 2022 Steph Curry photo-matched game-worn jersey, a 2020 Topps Dynasty F1 Lewis Hamilton Triple Patch Auto PSA 10, a 2021 Absolute Kaboom Tom Brady Gold PSA 10, and a 1925-28 Ty Cobb game-used bat.

Also up for bid are the shoes Kris Jenkins wore when he hit the dramatic buzzer-beating three-pointer to lift Villanova past North Carolina in the 2016 NCAA Men’s National Championship Game, a “Deflategate” game-used football, Tom Brady’s TD pass football to Mike Evans for Evans’ 71st career TD – tying the Buccaneers all-time TD record – and Brady’s game-used interception football from the game when he set the record for most regular season wins by a QB.
