Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LVII will be open for bidding on Saturday September 6, and closes on Thursday, September 25.
Dear Collector letter
We would like to welcome you to Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LVII.
As the baseball season draws to a close, here's hoping your favorite
team is still in the race and your summer has been as enjoyable as
mine. Perhaps, the most fun you can have in this hobby is finding
ungraded, raw, prewar cards in their original condition. Such a "find"
is the 1933 Goudey set presented in individual lots on these pages.
These recently graded cards have spectacular color, bright white
borders, sharp corners and are simply some of the best Goudey cards you
can find on this planet! Not to be overshadowed by these "Glorious
Goudeys," is the rare Frederick Foto Babe Ruth, W600 Ty Cobb, 1954
Bowman Ted Williams and the two Mantle rookies, both the 1951 Bowman and
the 1952 Topps issues. Exquisite mint cards of Banks, Berra and Jackie
Robinson are not to be missed along with the finest SGC 1959 Ted
Williams Set which grades an astonishing 95.06 for all 80 cards! The
highest graded SGC example of one of the hobby's greatest cards, the
T202 Hassan Triple Folder of Ty Cobb's iconic slide captured by Charles
Conlon's famous photo, is also proudly offered. The catalogs highlights
are simply too numerous to mention, but we would be amiss if we didn't
call attention to the Joe Jackson rookie, the E121 Babe Ruth or the E93
Honus Wagner graded 7.5.
Our November auction will be here before you know it. We are currently
accepting consignments from now until mid-October. As always, there is
a 0% commission fee for the consignor.
We sincerely hope you have fun with the auction and good luck with your
