With over 2,000 lots up for grabs, collectors are in for a treat, especially with the highlight of the show – the top-ranked PSA graded 1968 Topps Registry set.

In the world of vintage cards, few things are as prestigious as owning a set ranked at the top of the PSA Registry, and this 1968 Topps collection does not disappoint. Each card is a piece of history, offering a glimpse into the iconic players of the past such as Mickey Mantle, Johnny Bench in his rookie card glory, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Rod Carew, Pete Rose, and a gem of a Nolan Ryan rookie card graded PSA 9, all available for bidding.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. The auction also features a lineup of high-value items that have already stirred up a buzz among bidders. The 1997 Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems #23 Michael Jordan card, one of the 90 red versions, has already surpassed the $100,000 mark, showcasing the intense interest surrounding this event.

For basketball aficionados, a PSA 8.5 Wilt Chamberlain 1961-62 Fleer rookie card stands out as a gem, while hockey lovers have the chance to compete for a 1966 Topps USA Test Bobby Orr rookie card graded PSA 8.5, a true treasure in the hockey card realm.

The auction doesn’t just focus on modern classics but also delves into the world of pre-war gems, including early Ty Cobb cards and prized possessions like the 1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal 150/649 Christy Mathewson White Cap SGC 8 and various 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig cards.

Moving into the post-war era, the auction offers up key lots such as a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 4, 1948 and 1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson cards, and a series of high-grade Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, and Mickey Mantle cards spanning from the 1950s to the 1970s.

The auction also presents a diverse range of sports memorabilia, from football to hockey, including a 1957 Topps Bill Russell PSA 6.5, a Jim Brown 1964 Philadelphia #30 PSA 10, and a Wayne Gretzky 1979 O-Pee-Chee rookie card graded PSA 8.5.
