Huggins & Scott produced it's largest catalog yet and the net results of their auction passed the $1 million mark. Among the items sold: one of the hobby's more famous pre-War cards.
A 1933 Goudey Nap Lajoie baseball card was the highlight of the Huggins & Scott October auction.
Bidding went late into Wednesday evening before the PSA 4 graded card sold for $15,000 ($17,250 with 15% buyer's premium.
Total sales were nearly $1.4 million. The sale included items from throughout the history of baseball including rare football cards, vintage signed baseballs, rare sports autographs, and other items. PSA grading helped some of the old baseball items draw strong bidding.
1950s baseball collectors were locked in on a completely graded 1959 Topps set that stood #16 on the PSA Set Registry. It sold for $24,150 with buyer's premium.
A 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle went for a relative bargain compared to another PSA 4 sold via eBay Wednesday night. The price, with buyer's premium in the H&S auction was $9200. A PSA 4 on eBay Wednesday night, sold by Mile High Card Company, went for $11,100 and drew 35 bids.
