Mile High Card Company will launch a special auction on Monday, one that will keep collectors of autographed baseball cards busy for days.
“The Rocky Mountain Autographed Card Auction” will feature over 2,700 lots, each consisting of a single, signed trading card dating from the 1930s and up.
The lots include Hall of Famers like Mantle, Clemente, Koufax, Ott, Foxx, DiMaggio, Williams and Robinson. There are also signed cards that are exceptionally hard to find for various reasons.
Every autographed card in the auction has been authenticated by PSA/DNA, SGC, JSA or Beckett.
“This is an auction like no other, the very first of its kind,” said MHCC President and CEO Brian Drent. “Autographed baseball card collectors have never seen this kind of one-stop shopping before. If you’ve been looking for a specific autographed card at shows and have come up empty, there’s a good chance you’ll find it here.”
Among the cards that will be offered when bidding opens Monday, August 12: a 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle, a 1933 Goudey Fred Lindstrom, 1935 Diamond Stars Pie Traynor and KiKi Cuyler, 1939 Play Ball Paul Waner, 1940 Play Ball Mel Ott, 1948 Bowman Stan Musial, 1948-49 Leaf Joe DiMaggio, 1950 Bowman Gil Hodges, 1954 Topps Jackie Robinson, 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax, 1957 Mantle/Yogi Berra, 1958 Topps Roger Maris, 1960 Topps Roberto Clemente, 1968 Topps Mantle/Mays/Kilebrew and a PSA 10 1969 Topps Reggie Jackson rookie card. There are multiple signed cards of Mantle and Maris, among others.
