Goldin Auctions is continuing to plan for its live auction in conjunction with the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago this summer. One hundred higher-end items, each with a value of $10,000 or higher.will be offered in the event. It will take place at the Muvico 18 Theater in Rosemont, IL, about a mile from the Stephens Convention Center, which is again hosting the NSCC.
The company says dozens of one-of-a-kind and rare memorabilia and cards have already been consigned including a Babe Ruth game-used and signed bat; a Ruth game worn Yankees cap; Christy Mathewson’s 1905 World Series bat; a PSA 8 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle; a PSA 7 1933 Goudey Nap Lajoie; a Hank Greenberg game used and signed Tigers cap and other high-end items. A preview of the live auction items will be posted in June.
The Mantle card (shown at right) was recently re-holdered with PSA’s new hologram label. Another PSA 8 Mantle sold at auction last fall for $268,664.
“If you have been on the fence about consigning your items for auction, now is the time as nearly all of the hobby’s top sports collectors attend the National and will be among our bidders,” explained Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “Just like last year’s historic Babe Ruth 100th Anniversary Auction we will have a spectacular array of memorabilia and extensive promotional efforts that will make this a special event for the industry.”
Coinciding with its NSCC live event, Goldin will hold a conventional catalog/online auction set to conclude August 8. That auction will have over 1,000 items.
