Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LXI will preview on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 and open for bidding on Saturday, August 29, 2015. The auction closes on Thursday September 17, 2015.
We would like to welcome you to Masterpieces & Uncommon Commons LXI.
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. Recent summer acquisitions include the legendary T-206 Eddie
Plank which is considered to be one of the top five cards in our hobby.
In hobby lore, the Plank card is second only to it's T206 companion,
Honus Wagner. A superlative example of this Plank rarity is proudly
offered in Lot #1. You will also find no fewer than 10 premium Babe
Ruth items, along with 14 Mickey Mantle offerings, including the highly
desirable rookie cards of these baseball icons. Speaking of rookie
cards, an abundance of Hall of Fame first cards such as Nolan Ryan,
Gordie Howe, Ernie Banks, Ed Mathews, Joe Namath, Hank Aaron, Sandy
Koufax, Roberto Clemente, Stan Musial, Willie Stargell and many others
can be found throughout this catalog. Other auction highlights include
a fantastic autographed T206 Tris Speaker rookie card graded PSA/DNA 10
and a rare Jones-Keyser cabinet of the great, Christy Mathewson. White
border T206 and autographed Hall of Fame cards are plentiful in these
pages. In short, these are just a few of the collectible treasures
presented in this edition of Masterpieces & Uncommon Commons LXI.
Thanks for your interest and I hope you enjoy the auction!
