Mile High Card Company opens its September “Extra Innings” Auction on Monday with the auction slated to close on Wednesday September 24.
“Extra Innings” auctions are online only auctions and offer collectors everything from graded cards, to complete sets, autographed material, memorabilia, and other items from all four major sports. Unlike Mile High Card Company’s traditional high-end catalog auctions, “Extra Innings” is an online only auction with no catalog mailed.
The auction includes a major collection of over 60 different 1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets including Christy Mathewson, Johnson and Young. Other pre-war cards include a selection of T206’s highlighted by several Ty Cobb cards, most notably a green portrait and a bat on shoulder pose both with Sovereign advertising reverses.
There are several complete sets in the auction highlighted by a t collector grade 1911 T201 Mecca Double Folder set as well as 1954 and 1955 Topps sets.
The auction also has a small but concentrated selection of memorabilia, including a 1998 Derek Jeter New York Yankee game-used road jersey with a MEARS LOA as well as a late 1950’s Kansas City A’s game used hat attributed to Roger Maris signed by the famed slugger under the bill with a full PSA/DNA letter.
The “Extra Innings” auction is nearly 450 lots and will be a prelude to the December 4th catalog auction. Bidding begins Monday at www.milehighcardco.com and will close utilizing the standard 15 minute rule at 9:00 PM EST on the 24th.
The company is currently seeking cards and other items including trophies, rings, game used items, advertising pieces and other items from Ruth, Gehrig, Cobb, Jackson, Mathewson, Mantle and others. Call (303) 840-2784 if you wish to consign. The company’s Consignor Incentive Program continues with reward points available.
