Centennial, CO – Mile High Card Company presented the strongest auction of the season to close out 2015 and now they're ready to ring in the new year with a truly astounding January Elite Auction, which opens Monday January 4th and concludes on Thursday, January 21st. Limited to just over 700 lots, this event brings a lot of firepower with cards and sets that haven't been offered for public sale in years, if not decades. "As we've done in the past, we've kept the number of lots down while raising the quality to new heights of excellence" said MHCC President and CEO Brian Drent.
The auction opens with a PSA 9 MINT example of a 1954 Topps #128 Henry Aaron RC that was graded just within the past few weeks. And if MINT specimens are your preference, then you'll also be interested in a 1933 Goudey #92 Lou Gehrig MINT, 1915 Cracker Jack #57 Walter Johnson MINT, 1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle MINT and 1957 Topps #328 Brooks Robinson RC PSA 9 MINT. But it wouldn't be an MHCC auction without a nice selection of GEM MINT cards, which includes a 1957 Topps #212 Rocco Colavito PSA 10 GEM MINT, the one and only 1962 Topps #218 Joe Torre PSA 10 GEM MINT, the one and only 1970 Topps #140 Reggie Jackson PSA 10 GEM MINT and a 1980 Topps #482 Rickey Henderson PSA 10 GEM MINT.
