Wheatland Auctions, a prominent Pennsylvania-based auction house, has started off the year 2023 with a bang by presenting a diverse and exciting range of sports collectibles. With nearly 500 lots on offer, the auction features a remarkable combination of vintage and modern cards, memorabilia, and sealed high-end football products from Panini.
One of the highlights of this auction is the twelve sealed cases of Panini’s high-end football products, which have caught the attention of modern sports card enthusiasts. These cases include sought-after editions such as the 2018 Prizm Hobby, 2020 Prizm Jumbo, 2021 Flawless, as well as multiple years of National Treasures, Contenders Optic, Immaculate, Select, and Panini One. These sealed cases are highly coveted in the world of modern football card collecting.
In addition to the high-end football products, the auction also offers an impressive selection of vintage and modern cards. Notably, all four lower to mid-grade copies of the Babe Ruth cards from the iconic 1933 Goudey set are up for grabs, along with one of the highest SGC graded 1922 E121 American Caramel Ruth cards. Fans of vintage baseball memorabilia will also be drawn to the 1933 and 1934 Lou Gehrig cards, adding to the auction’s appeal.
Basketball fans will not be disappointed either, as the auction includes five Michael Jordan rookie cards and two Jordan rookie stickers. These items hold significant value due to Jordan’s enduring legacy in the sport.
Collectors will also find several other noteworthy items, such as an SGC 10 1986-87 Fleer Isiah Thomas rookie card, 1926 W512 cards of Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb, and partial sets of 1933, 1934 Goudey, 1934-36 Batter Up, and 1934-36 Diamond Stars. Single Diamond Stars cards featuring legends like Mel Ott, Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove, and Hank Greenberg are also featured, showcasing the depth and variety of the collection.
The memorabilia section of the auction is equally impressive, with signed baseballs from historic figures such as Pie Traynor, Frankie Frisch, Willie Mays, and Thurman Munson (on a Little League ball). A rare 1917 World Series Game 2 ticket is another standout item, offering collectors a tangible piece of baseball history.

The auction is open until Sunday, February 18, providing enthusiasts and collectors with ample time to peruse and potentially own a piece of sports history.
