The high-dollar auctions aren’t just for high-grade Mickey Mantle cards.
While “The Mick” has dominated the auction block in recent years — and did so again last weekend via Heritage Auctions — there were two six-figure NFL sales of note in that Heritage sale, too.
And they weren’t alone as a number of graded football cards topped the $10,000 mark.
Memory Lane Inc.’s Spring Classics Rarities Auction ended with more than $2.9 million in sales during the weekend and four cards were of note helping the company reach that mark.
Three of them topped $100,000, while a fourth key card from the past topped $90,000 before a 20 percent premium was added.
Demand for The Mick continues to be an all-time high.
A run of high-grade Mickey Mantle Topps and Bowman baseball cards from 1951 to 1969 sold for more than $750,000 this weekend in a Memory Lane Inc. auction.
“The Empire State Collection” consisted of 21 PSA-graded cards and, according to the company, 14 of them set new record-highs for their condition.
