A number of high-end and truly historic baseball items are leading the way in the latest Lelands Masters Auction.
What you see above? A 1962 Topps first series cello box.
It includes 36 packs that originally cost buyers $3.60 if they cleared out the box. It’s been inspected, authenticated and documented by Baseball Card Exchange and includes a number of packs with stars showing, including four showing Stan Musial and then appearances by Sandy Koufax, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, Brooks Robinson and a number of leaders cards.
Bidding currently sits at $48,717 after just eight bids — and it’s not even close to the biggest item in the sale.
A near-perfect PSA 9 Hank Aaron1954 Topps Rookie Card led the way in the Mile High Card Company auction that ended during the weekend — and it was just one of 10 lots that topped the $20,000 mark.
All were graded vintage cards in high grades or key specimens slabbed by PSA or SGC — meanwhile 13 other auctions topped the $10,000 plateau in the sale.
