Memory Lane's distinguished Premier Auction, active until February 4th, offers a meticulously curated collection of 120 vintage sports cards, attracting aficionados with its limited yet impressive selection. This event, notable for its high-grade offerings, features a catalog replete with historically significant and highly sought-after cards.

Among the auction's crown jewels is the 1909 T204 Ramly Walter Johnson rookie card, one of only two in NM/MT condition graded PSA 8, which quickly achieved a six-figure bid. Equally captivating is the rare T206 Ty Cobb Portrait (Green) card, with only three copies graded PSA 7 in existence, alongside a highly rated PSA 6 Cobb ‘Bat Off Shoulder’ Old Mill back.

The pre-war era is further represented by exceptional pieces like a PSA 7 graded T206 Cy Young and the highest graded PSA 9 T206 Nap Lajoie (Throwing) card. A standout item is the 1952 Bowman Mickey Mantle card in PSA 9 grade, one of a mere 13 at this level, with two known to be higher graded.

Mickey Mantle's legacy continues in the auction with six additional cards from the 1950s, each graded either 8 or 9, including prized versions from the 1953 Topps and Bowman series.

Roberto Clemente's cards from 1956 to 1973, particularly numerous Mint 9 graded ones, dominate the auction, outnumbering other players' cards. Willie Mays also features prominently with exceptional pieces, such as a rare 1962 Topps card graded PSA 9 and a 1970 Topps card, one of only two graded PSA 10.

The auction includes four Jackie Robinson cards, highlighting PSA graded versions of his 1949 Bowman and 1952 Topps issues, alongside PSA 10 rookie cards of baseball greats George Brett and Rickey Henderson.

Football enthusiasts can find high-grade rookie cards of Frank Gifford, Johnny Unitas, and Joe Namath, while basketball collectors are presented with rookie cards of Bill Russell (PSA 7), Wilt Chamberlain (PSA 8), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (PSA 8), Larry Bird/Magic Johnson (PSA 9), and Michael Jordan (PSA 8).

Memory Lane's Premier Auction offers a unique opportunity for collectors to acquire a piece of sports history, with the event culminating on February 4th, as detailed on Memory Lane’s website.
