MINT25 Auction Highlights
Ty Cobb T206 Piedmont 150 “Bat on Shoulder” PSA 5
“The Georgia Peach reigns supreme” as far as T206 cards that aren’t considered “rarities” go, according to Heritage Auctions with Ty Cobb featured on nearly 60 different variations in the iconic set. The all-time leader in career batting average is shown in his ‘Bat on Shoulder’ pose with a Piedmont 150 back. Graded a PSA EX 5, it is one of nine at the grade level with just seven higher.”
Mickey Mantle 1958 Topps #150 SGC 8.5
“Despite leading the American League in WAR, home runs, and runs scored in 1958, the writers elected to not award a single first place MVP vote to Mickey Mantle. Through Mantle and the Bronx Bombers ultimately got the last laugh, triumphing over the Milwaukee Braves in a seven-game Fall Classic. Hailing from that ‘58 season is the offered Topps card, #150 in the set featuring a prime Mick upon a bold orange background. Graded an SGC NM-MT+ 8.5 only a single example – a Mint 9 – can be found in a higher SGC grade, with six equaling the condition of this beauty.”
Ted Williams Autographed 1939 Play Ball PSA Authentic
“One of the most iconic pre-war issues of perhaps the greatest hitter to ever live; a 1939 Ted Williams Play Ball rookie card. Raising this card far above its compatriots in similar condition is the delightful blue ballpoint signature that Williams has applied across the lower half of his likeness. Given his proclivities as a willing signer, it is important to note that only 15 examples of this card have been authenticated and encapsulated by PSA. Addressed and inscribed “To Cullen, Best Wishes.” The simplistic black and white design of this card adds to its charm and has established itself as one of the most significant “Teddy Ballgame” collectible items out there.”
Super Mario Bros 3 WATA 9.6 / A+ – Graded Video Game
“With more than 18 million copies sold, Super Mario Bros. 3 cemented itself firmly as, ironically, the third best-selling Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game of all-time – trailing the debut of the Mario Bros. and “Duck Hunt.” The game became a “cultural touchstone” according to GamesRadar, who ranked it as the #12 best game of all-time in 2021. The offered copy is one of 15 at the 9.6 A+ grade level with only ten grading higher out of nearly 200 examples.”
Wilt Chamberlain 1961 Fleer PSA 7
Simply iconic, this Wilt Chamberlain 1961 Fleer Rookie Card is “the only recognized rookie card of the most dominant basketball player to ever play the game,” according to PSA. Graded Near Mint 7 by PSA. “The Big Dipper” is unquestionably one of the greatest basketball players to ever play – a legacy that only seems to get stronger over time. Said Heritage Auctions, “[Chamberlain’s] rookie card is arguably one of the top two most important cards in the basketball hobby.”
Sandy Koufax 1955 Topps PSA 8
“Considered one of the most visually captivating cards ever made and the clear rookie card of Sandy Koufax to own. Featuring a youthful but deceptively innocent-looking Koufax, the card is renowned for its popularity as one of the key assets in an iconic 1955 Topps baseball set. Just shy of 10,000 examples of the ‘55 Topps Koufax have been submitted to PSA with just 45 cards graded higher in circulation. Koufax’s portrait has been described as “unassuming and near-perfect, much like the pitcher was on the mound.” The offering has been awarded a PWCC-A sticker for eye appeal.”
