Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LIV will be open for bidding on Saturday, March 8 and closes on Thursday, March 27.
Welcome to Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LIV.
"The Sultan of Swat", "The Great Bambino" or simply "The Babe", baseball's greatest player, Babe Ruth, is highlighted in this catalog no less than in seventeen different lots. Just a few examples are the much sought after blank back rookie card in Lot 1, the amazing E-121 graded 7.5, the 1922 Neilson's Chocolate and the rare 1922 W-501 "Babe Holding Bird". The last three mentioned lots are the highest graded by any grading company! These are truly Ruthian cardboard examples in more ways than one.
T-206 enthusiasts will have a full palette of White Border cards including tough backs, such as Lenox and Red Hindu, near mint to mint cards featuring Ty Cobb, Johnny Evers, Joe Tinker and one of a kind printer scraps.
Other highlights include more cards from the Louisiana Holsum Bread find, vintage autographs and photos, along with 19th Century Hall of Fame cards. Don't miss the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle which has spectacular eye appeal that goes way beyond it's technical grade.
As always, there are too many outstanding lots to mention in this welcome letter. Here's hoping that you will have time to peruse the pages of our catalog as we are sure there is something for every collector.
Thanks for your interest and good luck with your bids.
