Wide Selection Of T206s To Be Sold In SCP Current Sale

The partnership of Sotheby’s and SCP Auctions is prepared to bring forth another array of sports memorabilia and cards as part of their latest Internet-only auction, bidding currently underway at www.scpauctions.com. According to Dan Imler, managing director of SCP Auctions, the sale, which ends Jan. 29 and 30, includes a high percentage of property that is “fresh” to the marketplace.

“It is always exciting to present collectors with quality cards and memorabilia that are new to the marketplace, or from ‘old collections’ that have kept the material out of recent circulation,” said Imler. “Many of the graded cards in this sale were only recently graded under our direction, and some of the most prominent memorabilia pieces in this sale will be seen by collectors for the first time.”Â
Â
Highlighting the fresh-card offerings is a large selection of T206s, including singles and lots yielded from a complete T206 set from the Allan Schwartz Collection. Other notable prewar cards include a group of 1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinet Cards offered as singles and lots, a high-grade 1912 S81 Silk Christy Mathewson, a 1914 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb SGC 60 and a 1894 N302 Mayo Football PSA Graded Partial Set (24/36).

Also to be offered is a run of complete sets, lots and singles from the postwar era headlined by a mid-grade 1952 Topps Baseball complete set. An additional selection of graded singles from Topps’ inaugural issue is led by a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 7. A solid selection of other Topps and Bowman complete sets from all sports include the following; 1951 Bowman Baseball, 1948 Bowman Basketball and 1952 Bowman Small Football. Collectors of Topps test issues and oddball varieties will have their first opportunity to bid on a previously unseen group of proof cards from issues such as 1969 Super, 1970-73 Candy Lids and 1974 Deckle.Â

 Anchoring the sale is a wide variety of memorabilia. At the forefront of the memorabilia category is a selection of game-used bats from some of baseball’s most prolific sluggers. Topping the list is a 1921 Babe Ruth H&B game bat (PSA/DNA-graded GU7) from The Bill Nowlin Bat Collection formerly displayed at The Ted Williams Museum and Hitter’s Hall of Fame. The hefty (36 in., 43.2 ounce) war club is a solid example from perhaps the most pivotal era in Ruth’s career. The offered Ruth bat represents a sampling of the Nowlin Collection, the rest of which is set to be offered in Sotheby’s/SCP Auctions April Live Auction.
