SCP Auctions' Spring Premier catalog is set to dazzle collectors with the only known George Mikan Minneapolis Lakers warmup suit, signed by the basketball legend himself. Dating back to the NBA's infancy, this unique piece, complete with jacket and pants signed by Mikan, comes with an LOA from Sports Investors Authentication and is anticipated to fetch upwards of $400,000.

Recognized as a transformative figure in basketball, Mikan's memorabilia, especially game-worn items, are highly coveted. This auction also features prime vintage baseball cards, including a PSA 7 Mickey Mantle 1951 Bowman rookie card, two 1952 Topps Mantles, a 1963 Topps Mantle SGC 9, and a rare 1933 Goudey #92 Lou Gehrig SGC 9, among others, with the Gehrig card expected to exceed $150,000.

Collectors of Pete Rose memorabilia will find the second-ranked master set of his cards, following SCP's sale of the top-ranked set last fall. This auction includes a range of significant Shohei Ohtani cards and memorabilia, such as the jersey worn on Jackie Robinson Day in 2023, expected to draw six-figure bids, and Ohtani's 200th career home run ball.

Among other highlights are two pairs of Michael Jordan game-worn shoes, a Roberto Clemente cap, a Ronald Acuna Jr. photo-matched jersey, and a Tua Tagovailoa signed jersey from 2023. The auction also features high-end jewelry like a 1957 Mickey Mantle AL MVP award, Olympic gold medals awarded to Jim Hines and Oleksandr Abramenko, a 2003 Florida Marlins World Series ring, and a 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers NBA championship ring.

Other notable lots include Kobe Bryant game-worn and signed shoes, a 1957 Mickey Mantle AL MVP trophy, a Ted Williams game-used bat, a 2023 Bowman Chrome Draft Tom Brady Orange Refractor autograph, a 1948 Leaf Jackie Robinson rookie card, early Hall of Fame inductees and Yankee legends multi-signed baseball, and historical sports memorabilia dating back to the early 20th century.

The auction, featuring over 400 lots, opens Wednesday and continues until Saturday, April 13, available for bidding at SCPAuctions.com.
