Fall 2016 Auction Preview

Robert Edward Auctions has always been more than just a baseball auction house, and this auction includes some tremendous cardboard treasures from football, basketball, hockey, boxing, and golf. A substantial hockey-card collection, spanning the 1930s to the 1980s is offered in dozens of different lots, highlighted by a near-complete PSA-graded 1933-1934 V357 World Wide Gum "Ice Kings" set, four completely graded 1930s O-Pee-Chee V304 sets, and every major Topps, Parkhurst, and O-Pee-Chee issued during that era. Decades worth of football cards are also on display, with a near-complete SGC-graded set of 1894 N302 Mayo's Cut Plug; a stunning 1934 National Chicle Football set graded PSA 6 through PSA 9 with a gorgeous PSA NM 7 example of key card Bronko Nagurski; high-grade PSA sets of 1952 Bowman Large, 1955 Topps All-American, and 1957 Topps; and a new-to-the-hobby complete wax box of 1964 Philadelphia Football cards. Basketball is well represented with a PSA GEM MINT 10 example of Michael Jordan’s iconic 1986-1987 Fleer rookie card,  high-grade complete sets of 1957-1958 Topps (including a Bill Russell rookie PSA NM-MT 8) and 1961-1962 Fleer, a superb PSA MINT 9 example of Pete Maravich’s tallboy rookie card, and an NBA 50 Greatest Players lithograph. High-end boxing is available, with two of the most iconic sets ever produced—1948 Leaf and 1951 Topps Ringside—offered in entirely graded form. Rare golf collectibles, including a program from the first Masters tournament, original artwork from the Cope’s golf set, and some scarce complete sets from the 1930s to the 1980s, round out the non-baseball sports offerings.
