Bidding is humming along in the auction for a high-grade T206 set owned by collector E. Powell Miller. The Detroit area attorney’s collection is getting an auction all to itself and rightfully so.
It turns out he had a Honus Wagner and the Doyle variation but sold both of them to collector Ryan Hotchkiss not long ago.
He won’t be completely T206-less when the auction is over, either. Here’s a story about the collection– and the auction– in the Detroit News.
Stock in Collectors Universe, the parent company of PSA, soared past $60 on Monday, a new 52-week high. It reached a peak of $64.04 before settling at $62.05 at the end of trading.
As late as mid-June, the stock was below $30. Over the last 52 weeks, it had been as low as $13.26. The company now has a market cap of $573.34 million.
Monday marked the anniversary of the 1979 NBA debuts of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, who were famously paired together on the same 1980-81 Topps card.
One of the 23 copies of that iconic rookie card was IPO’d on the fractional shares platform Collectable Monday afternoon. The cost is $80 per share with 4,400 shares offered. Within three hours, the offering had been about 40 percent funded.
Remember that collection of Nick Anderson items found in an abandoned storage unit? It’s been consigned to Goldin Auctions.
There’s a Final 4 ring, his national high school player of the Year award and other memorabilia up for grabs. The consignor had tried to reach Anderson but to no avail.
Collectible sneakers are a big deal and on Monday, eBay announced it would be starting an authentication service for those that have a value of over $100. The company sells a sneaker every 1.5 seconds.
