Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LXVII will open for bidding on Wednesday, July 20, 2016. The auction closes on Friday, August 12, 2016.



Dear Collector,

I would like to welcome you to "Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LXVII." Our catalog has a wide array of quality collectibles for both the collector and the investor. Three fantastic 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle cards lead off our auction. All three display outstanding aesthetics that go far beyond their technical grades. In fact, it would be difficult to find better examples in respect to their assigned grades.

A rare Uncle Jack's Babe Ruth card, just one of 8 known graded copies, is proudly offered and highly recommended. First year or rookie cards of Hall of Famers in high grade have become some of the hobbies most sought after collectibles. This auction has a large selection of these first year cards including Clemente, Koufax, Reggie Jackson, Ryan, Seaver, Banks, Staubach, West, Gretzky, Bench and several more. Other highlights include a T206 Eddie Plank and mint examples of Musial, Banks, Jackson and Namath just to name a few. One of the collectible world's most iconic treasures is the Superman comic book #1 which is presented in Lot #6 in these pages. A 1960s breathtaking original painting by the renown Leroy Neiman of Muhammad Ali is simply one of the finest items we have ever presented for auction. Historically important correspondence of Woodrow Wilson and a hand-written speech by Muhammad Ali, both with racial references, are museum worthy pieces that will no doubt be the pride of some lucky collector's collection. Please don't miss the $1,000.00 Federal Reserve bill, the Teddy Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover and Connie Mack personal letters and the high grade T206s with difficult backs.

We will be accepting consignments at this years National Sports Collector's Convention in Atlantic City at Booth #216 at the front of the convention hall. Please stop by and say hello.

We sincerely hope you have fun with the auction.
