Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris cards and photos were the tops sellers in the most recent Memory Lane auction.
Legends of the Game Steiner Sports Auction ends tonight. Bid now on great items pertaining to all of the great Yankees, plus numerous stars in all of the major sports.
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.
A total of 75 lots will be featured covering everything from his multiple World Series rings to game-used bats used for personal milestones (i.e., 1,500 career hit and his 200th career home run) to team-signed New York Yankees baseballs from the 1950s.
Collect Auctions brings more unopened cases of sportscards to the market, joining some Ruth and Gehrig signed beauties in its next sale that starts Mar. 24 and ends April 3.
A dealer is sought out by collector to buy items all of the time. However, few collectors accurately know what similar items are selling for. A little education and research go a long way.
