All eyes were on Robert Edward Auctions earlier this month as more than 2,600 lots of cards and memorabilia spanning the nineteenth century to today hammered down at auction on May 6. An incredible 39,182 bids were placed throughout the course of the three week auction, which tallied over $8,700,000 in sales. A staggering 147 items sold for $10,000 or more, including five that cracked six figures.
Mickey Mantle's 1952 Topps PSA 8 led the way hammering at $300,000, with a pair of remarkable Topps rarities taking the second and third positions. The only graded example of Mickey Mantle's 1961 Topps Dice Game card brought $144,000. An extremely rare 1951 Topps Major League All-Star Robin Roberts sold for $132,000, more than doubling the last record sale price. The other two rarities from this set, Jim Konstanty and Eddie Stanky, each set new price records at $45,000 apiece.
