Vintage card collectors will have a chance to put some serious dents in their want lists starting today when Memory Lane Inc. opens a special I Own it Now sale featuring over 4,000 PSA-graded cards from some of the hobby’s most iconic sets. It’s believed to be the largest private offering of such cards ever offered for sale.
The cards span eight different decades—from the tobacco cards of the early 20th century through the Topps ‘test’ issues of the late 1960s and early 70s. Stars, commons, high numbers and variations are all represented as are some of the premier rookie cards of the post-War era.
Many of the cards are among the highest ever graded. The sets were pieced together by a long-time collector and many are remarkably consistent in grade.
Among the sets and partial sets being broken are the 1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets including cards of Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Christy Mathewson; 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folders; 1911 T205 Gold Borders; 1933 Goudey, 1934-36 Diamond Stars; 1952, 1953 and 1955 Topps (with a PSA 8 Koufax rookie and PSA 8 Clemente rookie); 1949, 1952, 1954 Bowman (master) and 1955 Bowman (master); 1969 Topps Supers; 1971 Topps Greatest Moments and others.
The cards are being offered for 12 days at fixed prices. During the final two days of the two-week event, offers will be accepted on unsold cards priced at $1,000 and up. The sale will wrap up at 10 a.m. Pacific time on February 1.
Memory Lane will be at the Tri-Star show in Houston, Texas this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They are also taking consignments for their next I Own it Now catalog event as well as the upcoming regular spring catalog auction.
