This is our final auction of 2019. We want to thank all of our bidders and consignors for making 2019 one of our very best years ever. Most importantly, we want to wish everyone an early Happy and Healthy holiday season.
We close the year with our unique to the industry affordable all sports autograph and memorabilia-only auction. This auction is filled almost entirely with items that have a retail value of $500 or less and low minimum bids. A detailed description is below.
The auction takes place over two days. Day one is baseball autographs, day two has team signed baseballs, basketball, football, hockey and baseball memorabilia.
Day one begins with signed baseball cards. Content here includes a run of beautiful signed 1953 Glendale Meats Tigers cards, several tougher Nellie Fox 1960s Topps cards and a terrific run of 1986 Robert Stephen Simon signed cards.
We have a final selection of vintage signed Yankee player contracts. We had a big run of these, this is the final batch, so keep this in mind if you want to add one of these to your collection. Collectors of yearbooks and vintage programs will see some terrific Yankee signed yearbooks from the late 1960s through the late 1980s. Many of these are exceptionally comprehensive, with big stars throughout. There are also many tougher signed magazines, scorecards and more.
We have perhaps our largest offering ever of single signed and team signed baseballs. There are hundreds of singles, with note to many tougher deceased singles, many of which hardly ever come to market. Collectors of HOF singles will see a world class selection. We have tougher singles of current superstars, desirable broadcaster singles and interesting singles from other sports, including a gorgeous Walter Payton single signed baseball.
Multi and team signed baseballs start the second day of the auction. Among our most extensive offerings ever, there are all sorts of fun combination balls, classic duos and a wide ranging run of team balls from the 1930s through the 2000s.
Basketball collectors will see a run of desirable early NBA programs and the program from the first Celtic-Laker NBA finals matchup and more. Football collectors will see an extensive run of signed Goal Line postcards, several key 1964 Philadelphia signed cards, quality signed flats and many signed programs. We also have many key signed insert cards from the 1990s and 2000s, including Unitas, Bradshaw, Montana and Marino among others.
Baseball memorabilia closes out the auction. We have a deep collection of vintage mini-bats and several unusual collector bats. We have our biggest run ever of vintage baseball pins. There is a world of Yankee pins, going back to the 1930s, broken into many lots. There are scarce pins of Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris among much more.
