Masterpieces and Uncommon Commons LXIII will open for bidding on Saturday, December 12, 2015. The auction closes on Thursday, January 7, 2016.



Dear Collector:

We would like to wish you and your family a warm and joy filled holiday season.

Many lots in the catalog would easily headline any auction such as the perfectly centered 1953 Topps Mantle graded SGC 8 or the aesthetically pleasing 1952 Topps Mantle graded SGC 4. Other potential #1 lots are the Sporting Life and Pinkerton Cabinet cards of Ty Cobb. Rookie cards are plentiful including PSA 8 examples of Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax and Mordecai Brown.

Complete sets include the highest graded accumulations of the 1939 Goudey Premiums, 1971 Kellogg's and the test issue of the 1973 Topps Pin Ups. Over 50 autographed cards are offered including first year cards with the T206 signed "Wahoo" Sam Crawford leading the way. Tobacco and Caramel cards are presented with both rare backs and high grades.

Listed are just a few of the auction highlights. There is truly something for every collector from the beginner to the most advanced in these pages. We hope you enjoy the catalog.
