You might not think of Colorado as one of the epicenters of sports memorabilia collecting. However, Centennial, Colo., is home to Mile High Card Co., which happens to be one of the best sources for high-grade vintage cards. And when the company holds one of its catalog auctions, everyone takes notice.
The latest preview is out for Mile High’s upcoming auction, to be held April 28 through May 19. However, before we dive into the company’s bread and butter – vintage cards – there are some great autographed items that need your attention.
Mile High will offer a pair of Babe Ruth single-signed baseballs, the second of which is inscribed and carries an autograph grade of PSA/DNA 6.5.
Speaking of Yankees, this auction features a panoramic photo of the fabled 1927 World Series Champion New York Yankees, which featured the famous Murderer’s Row with Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
A great game-worn jersey in the auction is Stan Musial’s 1957 Cardinals jersey. In 1957, Musial led the league in hitting and finished second in the MVP award voting.
Football fans will get a kick out of a 1960s game-used Baltimore Colts jersey of Johnny Unitas. The legendary quarterback also signed the jersey on the back.
And now we get into the meat of the order. One of the top lots is 1909-11 E90-1 near complete set (119/120) all graded by SGC – a beautiful set.
Vintage collectors will also enjoy a selection of 1911 T3 Turkey Red cards, all of which will be offered individually.
Per its usual custom, Mile High also has an extensive lineup of high-grade singles, some of which include the following:
– T206 Christy Mathewson PSA 7
– 1914 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson, PSA 7
– 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth No. 181 SGC 88
– 1979-80 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky SGC 98
– 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle SGC 86
