It came and went already. Clean Sweep Auctions sent me their December catalog in November. The auction dates were December 2 and 3. In my mind they were December 9 and 10. Doh!
The catalog is a total of 88 pages. 1,303 lots are crammed into about 54 pages. The remaining pages are filled with items for sale.
This auction seemed to center around signed items. Cards, checks, Perez Steeles, postcards, photos, documents, balls, bats, jerseys, you name it.
Many different items were offered in a variety of sports. None really caught my eye or my heart. If I had to pick three items, they would be:
Lot 477 - Collections of 5 Negro League Letters - starting bid: $60
Interesting lot of letters from former Negro League players is as follows:(1) William Cash Sr TLS, (2) Wilmer Fields ALS (signed Wilmer) with signature on return envelope, (3) Monte Irvin TLS on MLB letterhead (signed Monte) and (4) George Sweat TLS. JSA LOA.
Lot 669 - Photo Landry, Tom - starting bid: $23
5 1/2 x 8 larger format image of Landry on the sidelines at Bid G. Signed very boldly Best Wishes, Tom Landry; a particularly large and impressive signature. JSA LOA.
Lot 754 - 8 x 10 Mikita, Stan - starting bid: $12
Nicely framed b/w 8x10 of Mikita in a great action pose. Signed in Mini blue sharpie. Has a Steiner LOA.
But, alas, this auction has come and gone. Do take a moment and look through their online store. Lots of fun, affordable cards, especially if you are into vintage cards.
