Default Memory Lane to sell million-dollar vintage PSA collection of landmark singles and set

Memory Lane to sell million-dollar vintage PSA collection of landmark singles and sets

August 26, 2011 at 4:38 PM



By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Memory Lane Inc. has acquired a collection consisting of more than 20,000 PSA-graded vintage cards from a long-time collector in the northeast — a million-dollar-plus highlight reel of cardboard history.

Among the sets included are 1887 and 1888 Allen & Ginter releases to a T206 set that ranks a 5.74 on the PSA Set Registry and, of course, iconic Topps and Bowman sets from the 1950s and beyond into the 1970s. Memory Lane is touting it as perhaps “the largest such collection ever to come to market at one time.”

Among the notable singles that will be sold are a PSA 2 T206 Honus Wagner, a PSA 5 T206 Eddie Plank, a PSA 4 1909 American Caramel Joe Jackson, a PSA 8 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson, a PSA 6 1916 Sporting News Babe Ruth, a PSA 9 1933 Goudey Nap Lajoie and a PSA 8 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle.

“We are honored that this gentleman entrusted us to sell what is one of the hobby’s greatest collections,” said Memory Lane’s J.P. Cohen. “We’ve enjoyed helping him acquire many of these same cards over the years and it’s a thrill to see them together in one place.

Man, I couldn't imagine the complete 1887 and 1888 Allen & Ginter sets. That's nuts.

Multiple compete sets of over 100 year old cards is just insane!
