Centennial, CO – As we enter the start of a new baseball season, Mile High Card Company is pleased to announce its March Auction, set to go live on March 2nd and conclude on March 19th. This event offers the typically incredible selection of high-profile cards, memorabilia and sets that have become the hallmark of every MHCC auction. "We're very happy with the content of this auction and especially pleased about the 1933 Goudey and 1961 Topps sets as well as a M101-4 Babe Ruth rookie card, the finest in existence for the grade" said MHCC founder and CEO Brian Drent.
Graded EX 5, the offered M101-4 Sporting News card that introduced Babe Ruth to baseball card collectors is quite spectacular, well-centered without the print lines that are present on virtually every example. And if you're a Ruth collector, you'll be ecstatic over the break-up of a world-class 1933 Goudey set, which features PSA 8 Babe Ruth cards of #144 and #181 as well as PSA 7 cards of #53 and #149. Lou Gehrig's #92 is also PSA 8, and the majority of the cards are in the PSA 8 and PSA 7 range, capped off with the amazingly rare #106 Napoleon Lajoie, graded PSA 6. Other items of emphasis include a 1895 Mayo's Cut Plug N300 Ed Delehanty EX/NM 6, 1903 Breisch Williams E107 Chief Bender GOOD 2, 1910 Tip Top Bread Honus Wagner PSA 5 EX Highest Graded at PSA and Likely the Strongest Example in Existence, 1912 T227 Series of Champions Ty Cobb PSA 6 EX/MT - Highest Graded Specimen in Existence, and 1911 T205 Gold Border Richard Hoblitzell "No Stats" PSA 4 VG/EX.
The 1933 Goudey set is just one of several offered assemblages that rank near the top of the PSA Set Registry. Also available, as a complete set or as individual lots, is a 1961 Topps Complete Set #2 On PSA Set Registry with Incredible 9.02 GPA that includes 24 cards graded PSA 10 and virtually every other card at PSA 9. Other sets include a 1909-12 Sweet Caporal Domino Disc Complete PSA Graded Set #1 on PSA Set Registry, 1909-12 P2 Sweet Caporal High Grade Set Completely PSA Graded - #2 on PSA Set Registry, 1955 Topps Rails and Sails Complete Set #2 Current and All-Time on the PSA Set Registry, and complete or near-complete sets of virtually every issue from the 1950s and 1960s, including a 1952 Topps Near Complete Set with PSA 5 Mickey Mantle.
Autograph collectors will be clamoring over the prospect of obtaining various items signed by Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Roberto Clemente, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson and Cy Young among others, as well as several huge lots containing hundreds of baseball, football, and basketball autographs. Wayne Gretzky's historic 1984-1985 Edmonton Oilers sweater caps off the selection of game-used jerseys.
