Heritage Auctions turned in a three-day sports collectibles event into an $11 million payday, with gangbuster prices for vintage cards, including a staggering amount for a 1952 Topps Willie Mays.
One of the draws for baseball collectors in the 1960s was Topps’ World Series cards, offering highlights and additional star cards of Mickey Mantle, Sandy Koufax, Roger Maris and a host of others.
The Babe Ruth watch got a lot of attention, propelling the relic to sell for more than $650,000 in SCP Auctions latest sale. The watch was joined by a Koufax Jersey and Satchel Paige’s HOF ring among the big bids placed in the weekend sale.
The show will feature more than 300 vendors and guests, including appearances and autograph sessions with some of the top players in baseball, grading and authentication services available and plenty of door prizes.
