Default Vintage High End Items Highlight MLI Sale including Unopened wax for the 50's-60's

Vintage High End Items Highlight MLI Sale including Unopened wax for the 50's-60's

Unopened baseball card boxes from the 1950s and 60s, high-grade sets and singles and a run of mint cancelled checks from the first Hall of Fame class will be up for bid later this month.

When its auction kicks off this month, Memory Lane Inc's full-color auction catalog will feature some items never before sold publicly, collections that have taken years to put together and rank among the finest known and some one-of-a-kind rarities.

Over 1,000 lots will be featured in the December Hidden Treasures Auction. Some are leaving private collections for the first time.

Among the featured items is a 1948 Bowman George Mikan Rookie Card, graded PSA 10 (Gem Mint); the only one ever to reach that standard. The card is from the famous collection of former Major League pitcher Tom Candiotti, who has amassed some of the best quality vintage sports cards of all-time.

The bespectacled Mikan was one of the first post-War era superstars of sport, a Hall of Famer in the making when this card was being pulled from bubble gum packs. The minimum bid for what was recently tabbed one of the hobby’s top 20 cards of all-time is $50,000.

Vintage sports card boxes that have survived years of storage are among the most popular and rare items any auction can have. They have survived the temptations of curious card archaeologists and unfailingly create unbridled excitement from bidders who can’t resist their allure. Is there a gem mint rookie card hiding inside? Collectors who browse the MLI Hidden Treasures Auction will find a run of 1950s and 60s unopened boxes including ‘50s Bowman and a Topps box from each year, 1956 through 1960.
Aucton catalogs are also available free of charge by mail Bidding will be available online at and by phone (877-606-LANE). The full auction catalog will also be available online through Zmag, enabling collectors to browse its pages in virtual fashion.
