Vintage Nonsports Auction #4 Results

Thanks for the support on the auctions……I’ve been fortunate to bring to auction a number of really tough cards and Auction #4 was no exception. Thanks to some fantastic consignors, who I immensely appreciate, the following nonsports types brought what I would consider to be above market prices.

Tough “N”, “T” and “R” type cards seem to be on fire with multiple bidders on each. This bodes well for the market for sure. In addition higher grade cards from the mainstream collectible sets from A&G, Buchner and others seem to be doing well as the search for high grade registry copies intensifies. Some PSA 6-7-8 prices of collectible sets from the January auction include:

N3 A&G Arms of all Nations Cannon PSA8 $730.80
N3 A&G Arms Lot of (3) PSA7 Cards $1089.24
N3 A&G Arms Lot of 6) PSA6 Cards $952.36
N9 A&G Flags Lot of (2) PSA7 Cards $278.40
N12 A&G Fruits Lot of (3) PSA7 Cards $737.76

The auction also saw a first foray into sports cards with a group of all (10) of the N28 Allen & Ginter World’s Champions baseball cards. The (10) cards are some of the most popular cards in the baseball genre and widely collected. The group of (10) cards were graded by SGC with grades ranging from SGC1 to SGC7. The group of (10) cards brought a total of $7749.28 with the Mike “King” Kelly card, graded SGC7 at $2570.40 and the Adrian “Cap” Anson SGC3 at $1755.25.

The next auction will be in May 2020 and we look forward to another group of fantastic type cards and other oddball items. We are always accepting consignments for the auction. Thank again to all bidders and consignors!
