Collectors can see and touch baseball history at the Memory Lane booth at the National Sports Collectors Convention.
The California-based auction house will make the 2,766-mile trip across the country, bringing along some rare items that will be on display at booth #133, near the front entrance of the Atlantic City Convention Center.
On display will be a 1909 T206 Honus Wagner graded PSA 4, one of the finest known examples of the hobby’s signature card, and the highest graded T206 Ty Cobb with Cobb Tobacco back from the recent “Lucky 7” find. The PSA 4.5 example was one of seven previously undiscovered cards found inside an old house.
Memory Lane will also have game-used Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig bats on display at the booth and the public is invited to stop by between 11 AM and 12 PM each day of the convention to hold either bat and take pictures.
The show coincides with the auction house’s upcoming Summer Auction, which opens August 2 and includes hundreds of vintage and rare sports cards, photographs and other memorabilia. Free auction catalogs will be available at the booth. More information is available at MemoryLaneInc.com.
The NSCC opens Wednesday and runs through this weekend in Atlantic City.
