An SGC 5 (EX) 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle sold for a record $306,000 as Robert Edward Auctions closed out its latest catalog auction late Sunday night. The price blew away the old record of $204,000 set just six months ago.
In April of last year, REA sold another 5 for $69,000—that’s $237,000 less than the one that sold Sunday if you don’t want to do that math yourself.
In all, REA President Brian Dwyer told SC Daily the auction of over 3,300 items took in over $14 million.
Several lots sold for prices above six figures including:
- 1954 Topps Hank Aaron rookie card PSA 8.5 $192,000
- 1869 Peck & Snyder Cincinnati Reds advertising trade card SGC 40 $186,000
- Autographed 1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig $126,000
- 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 SGC 8 $126,000
A ticket stub from Mickey Mantle’s Yankees debut on April 17, 1951 graded PSA 3 went for $84,000 while a 1952 Topps wax pack graded PSA 6 netted $69,000 and a 1953 Topps pack graded PSA 5 tallied $66,000.
Over 89,000 bids were entered in the auction.
