Clean Sweep is excited to present its current auction which offers strong offerings in so many categories. In particular, nearly all of the items in this auction are completely fresh to market, which we know is important to so many of our bidders. The current auction closes on June 12.
Auction opens with three great lots. The first is a stunning 1902 Carl Horner Boston Red Sox original cabinet display in the original frame, second is a very attractive uncreased 1952 Topps Mantle PSA 3.5 and third is a signed 1952 Topps Mantle, with the autograph graded a Mint 9 by PSA/DNA.
Next up are graded baseball cards, including a pair of Kalamazoo Bats, 19th century HOFers including Cap Anson, Ed Delehanty and Pud Galvin and a run of T207 scarcities with the key Buck Weaver card. There is a very attractive M101-4 Joe Jackson and a run of 1948 Leafs with a Babe Ruth and 36 different collector grade short-prints including the Satchel Paige. For the Topps collector, we have PSA 9s from 52 Topps, and 56 Topps Minoso and Pirates TC. There are also many very fine 8s of key HOFers from 56 and 57 Topps.
Sets and lots come next, with note to an enormous type card collection going back to the 19th century broken down into manageable lots.
