Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LIX will be open for bidding Saturday, February 21, 2015 and Closes on Thursday March 12, 2015

Dear Collector

I would like to welcome you to Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LIX.

We are both proud and excited to present the offerings in this first catalog of the year, 2015. It is also our first auction with Beckett Media. As most of you know, Beckett Media has a long and distinguished history of over 30 years serving our hobby. This so happens to be the same number of years Goodwin & Co. has been in the hobby. Combining our resources of over 60 years of experience will pay high dividends for both collectors and consignors alike. Just one example is Beckett's 92,000 email addresses which will bring many new collectors to the vintage auction market of our hobby. As you can see from our catalog, our auction format has remained the same offering high quality and unique vintage cards, autographs and sports collectibles.

Leading off Auction LIX is a seldom offered high grade 1914 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson. Equally rare are exquisite T206 portraits of two of baseball's greatest pitchers, Walter Johnson and Cy Young. Graded PSA 8 near mint to mint, either portrait would surely represent a place of honor in even the most advanced collection. The final card of the classic 1952 Topps issue, the Eddie Mathews rookie card, is presented in a fabulous PSA 8 along with over 100 cards from the same issue. Part one of the finest vintage card collection we have ever offered is displayed proudly in these pages. Over 70 autographed Goudey cards, including Lazzeri, Pennock, Hornsby and Dizzy Dean, are showcased. Many of the autographed cards, such as the Williams rookie and the Bowman Musial, have vintage autographs which date back to the time that the cards were produced in the 1930s and 1940s. Don't miss the high grade rookie cards such as the Nolan Ryan rookie in a PSA 9 holder, a Thurman Munson rookie card in a PSA 10 or the Bird/Magic rookie card in a GEM MINT 10. Complete sets include a 1911 Turkey Red including boxers, a 1941 Play Ball, a 1949 Leaf Football, a 1951 Berk Ross panel set and a Johnson's Cookies. T206 enthusiasts will not be disappointed with the catalog selection which includes rare Drum, Uzit and Lennox backs.

Please keep us in mind for your consignments and feel free to call me at 314-849-9798 to discuss any items you are contemplating selling.

Good luck and have fun with the auction!
