This auction will be our final auction of 2009. We want to thank the MANY new consignors who began working with us this year as well as the very large number of new bidders this year. Despite a challenging environment, Clean Sweep's unique product mix, honest pricing and quality inventory has allowed us to once again have a very successful year. We are currently working on our January 2010 major auction. We have a run of Yankee team balls going back to the 1920s, some terrific team balls, quality cards and exotic memorabilia.
This auction takes place over 2 days. Lots 1- 593 end on Wednesday, December 2 and Lots 594 - 1303 end on Thursday, December 3. This is an auction composed entirely of autographs and memorabilia. This is our unique affordable auction, with almost all items having a retail value of $500 or less. Minimum bids are very low as well.
Day one of the auction opens with a run of autographed cards from the 1920s through the 1990s. There is a major selection of quality GPCs, many better HOF and vintage deceased signed 3x5s and some rare cuts. We have picked up several fine vintage collections in the past few months that are all throughout the auction. The auction continues with a run of better signed Yellow HOF Plaques, Perez Steeles and the usual big selection of signed 8x10 photos.
Day 2 opens with game used bats. We then move on with some nice signed basketball and boxing items, headlined by Muhammed Ali and Bill Russell. We have an especially deep selection of football memorabilia. These include some of the tougher signed Goal Line cards, many desirable signed photos, and better pubs going back to the turn of the century.
We have some interesting golf and hockey signed items as well, more than we typically offer in this auction. Baseball memorabilia comes next, with a run of very early baseball books that go back to the early 19th century. We have a solid selection of game used equipment, including many baseball jerseys. There is a big run of the classic PM10 pins from the 1950s, quality pennants, unusual photos and much more.
The collector of publications will see a solid selection of World Series Programs, yearbooks and programs from the 1940s through the 1960s, with some very early pieces as well.
Autographed baseballs conclude the auction. There are many very unusual singles of deceased players, our usual great selection of HOFers, some better current players and popular former stars. Team balls range from 1939 - 2000 and includes several Championship Team balls and some better Yankee, Dodger and Cardinal balls as well.
