Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris cards and photos were the tops sellers in the most recent Memory Lane auction.

The 1930s U.S. Caramel sports set had a lot to offer – from Ruth and Gehrig to Presidents – although only in bite-size chunks.
Babe Ruth’s first Yankees contract, Ruth’s boyhood catcher’s mitt, historic documents, game-used jerseys and high-grade cards will make a splash in the 75-lot main event at the New York Yankees steakhouse.
Heritage Auctions hosted a sale of one of the best 1933 Goudey sets. With each card sold individually, total sales topped $1.17 million, led by Ruth and Gehrig.
Over the decades, 1960 Fleer Greats have earned a solid place in the hobby with the help of some famous faces. Prices for high-grade examples have seen an increase as well.
