Default Memory Lane Auction Any Surprises or WOW's

Good Morning Everyone

The Auction just ended a little while ago at 6:05 am

Just wondering

Any Surprises or WOW moments.

Prices higher or lower than you thought?

Any bidding wars you were part of or saw?

Anything you missed out on?

Any Pickups that you are proud to share?

Not the right place since it was a photo, but why not put it here vs the RMY thread:

I was also happy to grab the DiMaggio photo the day he broke the minor league hit streak at game 50 games as a San Francisco Seals. I also own a program from that game a great pairing.

There was an absolutely gorgeous T205 Cy Young (PSA 7) that I was following. I had hoped that if it stayed in the 15-20K range I would make a play for it, but I feared it would go for more like 25-30K. It went for over $110,000. I think that has to be a record for any PSA 7 T205 card, and by a wide margin. Even a PSA 8 Cobb sold in 2019 for about the same amount. Not sure what the etiquette on here is about this, but I'd love to hear from anyone who was seriously involved in the bidding, or even the person who won. Congratulations!

(I did win something which I will post when it arrives. )

The 52 Mantle authentic altered that I believe someone here was bidding on ended up $45k w BP.

In general Ruth and Mantle all ended up being the head toppers. The most expensive a 1953 Bowman PSA 9 $473k.

A 1933 Goudey #92 Gehrig altered autograph went for $43k w BP. The bottom was cut off. A Ruth Yellow Goudey also cut off with a nice signature $135k.

It's a really nice card but not super great looking, to me. I think it was probably a registry play. It is like my Cobby in a 6 holder, a little o/c top to bottom. Great card but the price was much greater....

I know this gets posted every time but the fact it ends at 6am is ridiculous. No clue why they donít go to item by item ending at some point.

Agreed 100%, feels archaic at this point with the other major AH's having already evolved their closing methods.

A lot of middle grade postwar vintage stars went very reasonable thatís a good sign that we are starting to see normalization away from those numbers of this past January through August.

As Leon states it's a great card, but I can think of so many other cards I'd rather have for $110K. Congrats to the winning bidder though

I was involved in the Young bidding but did not win it. Was the prettiest version of that card I'd seen in quite some time, and happy that it sold for a big number.

Completely agree. Was up until 4:00am EST and got fed up. Made me question some of my bids - if they were being made intelligently or out of exhaustion - so I just logged off. Much prefer the lots closing individually with the 15 minute rule.

Surprisingly I woke up to see my high bid held on the Cobb in Memory Lane. Was happy to win the Mathewson Brother cabinet from RMY which closed a little after midnight.

1915 CJ PSA 2 Cobb went for a ridiculous price of $18,300 before premium.

The hammer price of that SGC 8.5 Babe Ruth 1933 was a disappointment compare to that PSA 9 The National Break Mantle. Pretty sure they thought they would get over $1Mil to $1.5Mil from that Ruth based on the PSA 9 sold in their last auction.

Great stuff so far! I woke up to see that my max bid on the 1943 Satchel Paige photo held up... Barely!

Default The stuff I was watching

all ended pretty strong - Seems like the high grade high demand HOFers (Ruth, Cobb, Mantle, etc) are reaching new heights - many mentioned earlier in this thread. The 55 Jackie salesman panel closed pretty strong as well as did both Mantle Briggs items. The hobby is alive and well! Agree 1000% about the 6AM closing! Left this one empty-handed.

I was on the Young thinking I'd have a near cinch of a shot at it with $30k as my max. I stopped watching for a few hours in the early evening and was glad I did as when I came back it was at an absurd level. Sure, it's a great card but I do think that's a record 7 sale for any t205 as you said. Guess I'll be happy to be "stuck" with my PSA 6.

As for me, 3 cards in the "W" column last night/this morning with one big deviation from my tobacco era only PC.

Me neither. Signed off a midnight EST. No auction is worth staying up all night for. There will be another 6,000 of them in the next few years.

I guess most of us agree. I am not comfortable putting max bids on things like these.
I prefer 1 bid at a time. And very hard to stay awake all night for this.
Tough part is Memory Lane always has some great items and makes it hard for many of us to resist.
Hopefully the board had many winners to make it worth their efforts

Young was really tough for me to find in high grade. For my t205 set of 208, it was the most expensive card after Cobb. I think you had 2 registry guys chasing it.

Troy, I guess I missed out too then, since I very much enjoy buying your old T205s after you've upgraded!

Memory Lane has a lot of good stuff. You might say they are one of the best auction houses extant.

thats funny!!! I agree prices on quality superstars were strong...I thought some mid grade caramels like the e93 young went a little higher than recently comps. These are scarce cards relatively speaking and thats a unique pose.

The PSA 2 Cobb ended @ $22K after the BP

The PSA 3 Joe Jax ended @ $45K after the BP.

Was watching the T206 Cobb green PSA 5. It didn't budge from the bid about a week ago - with BP went $38.k. Considering what other stuff went for, was expecting little higher, but heck, still strong price. Don't know for sure, but could be new high price for that card in that grade.

It was centered with oversized borders. Surprised there wasnít a MC on the grade. Great card whoever won it.

Scarcity is starting to be a more defining characteristic of the collecting hobby IMO, as opposed to simply the most popular issue being chased.

That's good I believe in the long run, but yeah, that was a pretty crazy number for a Briggs Meat card.....

Yea I can as pretty shocked on the 1915 grade 2 Cracker Jack Cobb for 22k (not including potential buyer sales tax!)

The 1915 cracker jacks is one of my favorite sets of all time, but am surprised how much they seem to be jumping!

Glad I completed my set many years ago!

I was surprised that the PSA 7(Print Defect) E121 Ruth went for so much. With all those black horizontal lines (not to mention the black on the sides) that is really a pretty ugly card. Congratulations to the consignor and ML, not so much to the buyer.

I'm also surprised how high the Young T205 went, it's 1 of 8, 5 higher, so not so tough in that grade. Maybe Cy is starting to be the next one to really rise(?)

I was blown away how high the Green Cobb 5 went.

I was surprised the SGC 7 52 Mantle stayed under 200k.

I think that has to be a record for any PSA 7 T205 card, and by a wide margin.
Out of curiosity, why did you think this would only go for $25-30k? Were you more just hoping for that, or did you research recent comparable sales first that led you to believe that was it's range?

I was bidding on that Mantle as well, but I was probably the 4th underbidder or so. I dropped out when it crossed about $35k or so with BP since I already have a very similar card. I have an authentic altered Mantle with similar eye appeal that I also paid $45k for. Which is interesting, because there is no public record of my sale since I bought it with Bitcoin, and there really are no other similar comps for this card in recent years. So for both to sell for the same price within a 2 or 3 month window by multiple independent buyers, despite no recent comps, means we are all probably using similar methods to estimate its value. I was called an idiot and a sucker for paying that much for it when I posted it here not very long ago.

Yes, it's extremely annoying.

Ruth, Cobb, Mantle, Mays, Jackie and a few others will likely continue to outpace the rest of the vintage market. Ruth and Mantle in particular. I'm grabbing whatever I can while I still can.

There aren't a ton of comparable sales because there are so few of the T205 big four (Cobb, Young, Johnson, Mathewson) in grades of 7 or higher, but in December, Heritage sold a PSA 7 Mathewson for 15K, a PSA 7 Johnson for 18K, and a PSA 7.5 Young for 43K, while Goldin sold a PSA 7 Johnson also for 18K. I was estimating largely from those numbers, with a little market inflation built in.

There were a lot of strong sales in this auction, but there were quite a few bargains as well.

I don't know what comps are for it, but the 1955 Bowman Mantle PSA 8 selling for $12k sure seems like a hell of a bargain to me considering the PSA 9 sold for $375k. The Mike Trout blue auto refractor RC selling for $20k seemed like a steal to me as well. The Dan Marino BGS 10 Pristine RC selling for just $4.8k while the PSA 10 sold for $6.8k was a great score. Whoever consigned that is going to be pissed lol. I saw quite a few good deals on some of the more modern cards, especially non-baseball.

I won a few cards. About half vintage, half modern. I got the Sport Kings Ruth, a 33 Goudey Ruth, a 53 Topps Mays, and a ticket stub to Jackie Robinson's last game (1956 World Series Game 7). I also picked up some basketball cards. My biggest purchase was a dual signed Lebron James RC that was signed by him and Michael Jordan. That's the only card I went over my budget for, but it really has no comps. I was prepared to pay almost anything for it, within reason. It was the only "I have to have this one" card in the auction for me. Really excited for that one to show up. It's probably my new favorite card in my collection. Other than that, I grabbed a Steph Curry Gold RC, a Kobe jersey patch auto card, and a Lebron Topps Chrome RC that I really didn't need but just thought the price was too good to pass up.
