It won’t be out for nine more months, but Topps released some details on 2022 Pro Debut Baseball on Wednesday.
Among the insert sets is MiLB Legends, which focuses on some big league greats while they were working their way through the minors, so…if you’ve ever wondered what Deion Sanders might look like as a member of the Columbus Clippers on a 1960 Topps card, now you know.
They’ll be found in every six packs with three different parallels.
2022 Topps Pro Debut is due out on September 30 with Hobby and Jumbo configurations.
A signed, inscribed game-used football from Joe Burrow’s rookie season is among the more than 160 items in the newly launched Fanatics Winter Auction.
The ball carries a “Game Used/2020 Rookie Season/#1 Draft Pick” inscription from Burrow, the second year star who will lead the Cincinnati Bengals into this Sunday’s NFL Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Game-used jerseys from Burrow teammates Joe Mixon and Carlos Dunlap are also part of the auction.
Additional autographed memorabilia includes a Walter Payton helmet, signed and inscribed with his “Sweetness” nickname, a “half and half” Colts/Broncos helmet signed and inscribed by Peyton Manning with career highlights and, one of nine special Ravens helmets autographed and inscribed following Justin Tucker’s NFL record 66-yard field goal.
Multiple autographed football rookie cards include a 2001 Leaf Rookies and Stars Drew Brees (BGS 9.5/10), a 2019 Panini Encased Dual Swatch Kyler Murray auto numbered 6/9 and multiple Josh Allen rookie autographs.
The auction is scheduled to run through February 16.
Mike Eruzione’s jersey from the gold medal game in the 1980 Winter Olympics is up for auction–or at least part of it. Lelands is offering 20 percent ownership in the jersey via its current auction being held in conjunction with Collectable. It’s the first time partial ownership of an item has been offered in a sports memorabilia auction.
The current bid for that one-fifth ownership stake is $75,000.
After the auction, another ten percent will be offered fractionally to Collectable users, who can typically buy individual shares for $10 each.
The jersey isn’t the one from the famous “Miracle on Ice” upset of the Soviet Union when he scored the winning goal, but rather the gold medal winning game over Finland in Lake Placid.
Eruzione originally consigned the jerseys from both games to Heritage Auctions in 2013. The Miracle jersey sold for $657,250 while the gold medal game jersey went for $286,800.
Lelands has also released its schedule of upcoming auctions set to take place after the Mint Collective.
It’ll hold a Pop Up Auction leading up to the Super Bowl, Jan. 30-Feb. 12, followed by its Winter Classic Feb. 13-March 12.
