Current Clean Sweep Auctions Features Incredible Vintage Yankee Collection
The current Clean Sweep auction is one of the very best we have offered. We have worked tirelessly for months putting this together. Yankee items are featured on our cover, this is the heart of the current auction. Checking in at 187 lots and spread out over 45 pages, this is really an auction unto itself. This is a deviation from our usual format, but we thought it would be fun to keep these items together. Mainly from an incredible single owner collection, this section is loaded with fresh, great and often rare material.
Yankee highlights include many terrific Yankee team signed photos and baseballs, including an amazing 1920 Yankees signed sheet with Babe Ruth. There are three Mickey Mantle Rookie Cards, a 1916-1920 Big Head Babe Ruth strip card, a large selection of rare pre-war Yankee cards from 1903-1937 including an E105 Mello Mint Hal Chase, some very difficult Mantle oddball cards, including a 1952 Star Cal Decal, two Stahl Meyers, 1960 Post Cereal and full 1960s Bazooka Panels. There are also several sharp 1960s Mantle Topps cards in 8 holders.
This section also offers a world class Thurman Munson signed game used bat, a Rookie Jeter signed game bat, a great Posada game bat signed by the whole Yankee team, Yankee contracts including a pre-Rookie Dazzy Vance and a very rare Armando Marsans. There are two really nice Babe Ruth autographs and a wide variety of better Mickey Mantle, Thurman Munson and other very nice 1950s-1970s Yankee team signed items.
