Legendary Baseball Cards and Memorabilia Up for Auction


This spring, Huggins & Scott presents an auction not to be missed by baseball memorabilia enthusiasts, showcasing a rare T206 Sherry “Magie” error card alongside over 1,600 exceptional lots. This notable auction event also introduces to the public a set of 1910 Baltimore News Orioles cards, marking a significant discovery in baseball card collecting.

At the heart of the auction is the T206 Sherry “Magie” error card, a treasure among the fabled 'Big Four' of the T206 series, caused by a misspelling of outfielder Sherry Magee's name. This printing mishap was corrected swiftly, making the error cards exceedingly rare and sought after. The Magie card shares its elite status with other T206 legends like Honus Wagner, Eddie Plank, and Doyle NY Nat’l.

Adding to the auction's allure are three newly uncovered 1910 Baltimore News Orioles cards. These cards are part of a scarce schedule-card set that predates the 1914 BN set featuring Babe Ruth's rookie card, making them a rare find for collectors.

Pre-war highlights of the auction include coveted cards such as a 1934 World Wide Gum Babe Ruth (PSA 3) and Lou Gehrig (SGC 3), an 1887 N28 Allen & Ginter Mike “King” Kelly (SGC 6), an 1888 N28 Allen & Ginter John Montgomery Ward (PSA 6), and a 1917 E135 Collins-McCarthy Honus Wagner (PSA 4).

The auction also offers a rich selection of post-war baseball cards, including a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie card (PSA 3), a 1948-49 Leaf Jackie Robinson rookie (PSA 2), Hank Aaron's 1954 Topps rookie (PSA 6) and 1955 Topps (PSA 8), a 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax (PSA 7), and a 1952 Topps Eddie Mathews rookie high number (PSA 4). Additionally, a 1961 Topps set featuring 524 of the 572 cards autographed, along with signed memorabilia from baseball legends like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and Roberto Clemente, will be available.

Bidding for this exceptional array of baseball history is already underway and will continue until Thursday, April 4, with the closing of initial bids at 9 PM ET. This auction represents a unique opportunity to own a piece of baseball history, with rarities and memorabilia that appeal to the most discerning collectors.
