Individual graded card highlights include: a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle that has some of the best color and eye appeal that you'll ever see on the card, a spectacular rookie card of Ted Williams from the 1939 Play Ball set, selections from the well-known Dan Paradis collection of important early baseball rookie cards, amazing PSA Mint 9 1955 and 1957 Topps cards of Ted Williams, numerous other high grade cards from the 50s, 60s and beyond; and much more!
The "Lenox Find" of 15 different mid-grade T206s, all with Lenox brand ads on the card backs, is a special treat. Rarely do Lenox Backs surface for hobbyists to evaluate, and this group presents an uncommon opportunity for collectors to add numerous examples of these immensely scarce items to their collections.
SCL Consignment Director Chris Porter stated, "This 4th SportsCardLink auction of 2011 offers a variety of material for collectors at all levels. We are closing out our first year of auctions with a nice selection for collectors of original sports cards featuring some of the game's biggest names, such as Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Sandy Koufax, Babe Ruth and many more. Our final auction of the year should serve to cement in collector's minds the viability of our way of doing things. Collectors are able to bid in a truly competitive environment for the items that will enhance their collections. Sellers are realizing that the efficient process that SportsCardLink utilizes, which takes the best qualities of specialty auctions and the best qualities of ebay, combine to create the ideal selling environment."
One significant benefit to the collector of bidding in SportsCardLink Auctions as opposed to bidding with most other specialty auction sites is that SportsCardLink allows collectors the ability to pay by credit card, making purchases more affordable for winning bidders. Consignors too, may benefit from this, as bidders may be a bit more aggressive knowing that this payment option is on the table. Another way SportsCardLink makes it super easy for the winning bidder to pay for items won at auction is that we allow consignment material to be sent in lieu of payment, up to the entire amount of the invoice!
