Okay, it’s cold. Really cold; below zero throughout a good chunk of the United States. We’re also smack dab in the middle of the NFL playoffs, hurtling towards the Big Game on February 3.
This also means it’s time to get “warmed up” for our Winter, 2014 auction, and it’s going to be a great one. We’re loaded with special cards, memorabilia, and autographs, and we can’t wait to tell you all about them.
But we’ll start with this.
This is a spectacular collection of vintage football card display boxes, ranging from 1954 Bowman right through 1977 Topps Mexican. While we can’t help but imagine what treasures might have been inside the packs that were once held in those boxes, we also think that the boxes themselves are pretty cool; featuring gorgeous graphics from Bowman, Fleer, Philadelphia, and Topps, each in fantastic condition for display, and many wrapped in cellophane and fitted with styrofoam inserts to fill out the box. We’ll be offering most of the boxes individually or in small groups – while it’s a very cool collection, it’s also the type of thing we’d like everyone to have a chance at winning, so by keeping the lots small, we also keep them affordable.
There’s more than what is pictured in this photo, as well, with some additional graded boxes, as well as a few actual 1950s and 60s unopened packs (all PSA-graded, including a 1952 Bowman Large Wax pack), 1974 and 81 vending boxes, a 1935 National Chicle wrapper, and a rare box of 1977 Topps Mexican cards.
So we’re kicking off a Super auction with a Super group of football display materials.
We are feverishly taking photos, writing and proofing descriptions, and getting ready to present you with our best auction yet. Stay tuned. And stay warm.
