Mile High Card Co. presented its strongest auction of the season to close out 2015, and now the auction house is ready to ring in the new year with a truly astounding January Elite Auction, which runs from Jan. 4-21 at www.milehighcardco.com.
Limited to slightly more than 700 lots, this event brings a lot of firepower with cards and sets that haven’t been offered for public sale in years, if not decades.
The auction opens with a PSA 9 Mint example of a 1954 Topps #128 Henry Aaron rookie card that was graded just within the past few weeks.
If Mint specimens are your preference, then you’ll also be interested in a 1933 Goudey #92 Lou Gehrig, 1915 Cracker Jack #57 Walter Johnson, 1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle and 1957 Topps #328 Brooks Robinson rookie that are all graded at that level.
But it wouldn’t be a Mile High auction without a nice selection of Gem Mint cards, which includes a 1957 Topps #212 Rocco Colavito PSA 10, the one and only 1962 Topps #218 Joe Torre PSA 10, the one and only 1970 Topps #140 Reggie Jackson PSA 10 and a 1980 Topps #482 Rickey Henderson PSA 10.
PSA Set Registry collections will also dominate the event, including the break-up of the No. 1-ranked 1950 Bowman football set, featuring a #1 Doak Walker PSA 8 NM/MT, #45 Otto Graham PSA 9 Mint and the only #144 Knox Ramsey graded PSA 10.
Also available in individual lots is the No. 3-rated 1955 Topps All-American football set with #37 Jim Thorpe PSA 9 and #68 The Four Horsemen PSA 9.
Other top sets include a 1958 Hires Root Beer with tabs complete set, No. 2 on the PSA Set Registry; 1939 R303-B Goudey Premiums complete set, No. 1 finest on PSA Set Registry; 1956 Topps Pins complete set, No. 1-ranked set on PSA Set Registry; 1954 Bowman Football complete set, No. 3 on the PSA Set Registry with 9.59 set rating; and a 1967 Topps Football complete set that resides at No. 5 on the Registry.
Not to be outdone, a 1959 Fleer Three Stooges complete set that is all PSA-graded with 8.484 set rating will also be included, along with partially graded or ungraded complete and near complete sets that include two 1933 Goudey collections and a 1952 Topps set missing only the Mantle.
Other key items include a 1915 Cracker Jack #88 Christy Mathewson NM/MT+, 1915 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson PSA 8 (OC), 1948 Leaf #1 Joe DiMaggio NM/MT, 1954 Bowman #66 Ted Williams NM/MT, 1954 Topps #128 Henry Aaron PSA 8, 1909-11 Sweet Caporal 350 T206 Ty Cobb Bat Off Shoulder NM/MT and a 1954 NY Journal-American Mickey Mantle PSA 9.
