Whether you lean toward Walter Johnson or Michael Jordan, Wheatland Auction Services has you covered in their Spring Auction. The company’s latest online catalog includes a little bit of everything, with baseball cards from 1888 joining names from the current sports headlines. Over 500 lots are up for grabs in the no-reserve auction.
Among the highlights are numerous vintage baseball card sets from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, with many ‘pack fresh’ type cards tucked inside complete Topps offerings from 1960, 1965, 1966 and 1968.
Collectors also have the chance to bid on several late 19th and early 20th century cards including 1887 N172 Old Judge and 1888 N43 Allen & Ginter and 47 lots featuring T206s. There are also partial sets and dozens of popular rookies and stars from multiple eras being sold individually including two different copies of the rare 1954 Bowman Ted Williams.
Modern era collectors aren’t forgotten, though, especially those on the hunt for Michael Jordan. The auction includes no less than six 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan rookie cards including one PSA 9, six Jordan rookie stickers, a near set of ’86-87 Fleer, a complete set of stickers with Jordan and a lot of 20 sealed packs with the original box.
Tops among memorabilia in the auction is a 1920s-30s multi-signed baseball that includes PSA/DNA authenticated signatures of Walter Johnson and Dizzy Dean, among others and a 1933 Pittsburgh Pirates Pacific Coast League signed ball with coach Honus Wagner, Lloyd Waner and others. There are also autographs from Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams and other greats and some unique Mantle items including a 1959 Yoo-Hoo matchbook, P2 pins and a 1930s Wheaties panel with DiMaggio.
The sale also includes other unopened wax boxes from the early-to-mid 1980s, topped by a 1986 Topps football box.
There are dozens of lots featuring modern era autograph and relic cards including several Fleer Greats of the Game signed cards as well as some popular cards of Shohei Ohtani.
