The National Convention is always full of treasures. This year, many auction houses are bringing in great memorabilia to display, including SCP Auctions’ announcement of The Abrams Family Collection of Jackie Robinson memorabilia.
Reality TV will make the rounds to the National Convention, with “A Piece of the Game” to film a segment on sports memorabilia at the hobby’s biggest event.
The number of record and top-selling items in Goldin Auctions’ $2.4 million sale are numerous. Kobe Bryant’s memorabilia brought $433, 531, while Jackie Robinson’s bat reached $159,867 and a T206 Ty Cobb with a Ty Cobb back (PSA 1) brought $120,109.
The final tally is in for the spring Robert Edward Auction event. The rookie card of Babe Ruth and the famous T206 Wagner led the way, but other results – like a Ruth/Gehrig ball for $343,650 – were equally impressive. Let’s go through some of the highlights.
