The David Hall T206 Collection Anchors Heritage Summer Sports Card Auction

Now open for bidding, auction offers 2,000+ lots including PSA Registry sets, strong modern offerings

1953 Topps Mickey Mantle Card Heritage Auctions
DALLAS, Texas (June 25, 2019) — The world's largest sports collectibles auctioneer has launched its largest trading card auction in years, featuring more than 2,000 lots of cardboard commemoratives from a vast array of eras, sports and brands. Most notable in this event is the debut offering of The David Hall T206 Collection, featuring the most comprehensive compilation of entries and rare backs from the celebrated tobacco issue ever assembled.

"This is our first three-session sports card auction," said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions for Heritage. "It will close on consecutive nights from July 18-20, and we'll be accepting consignments at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago for those who might wish to submit as payment toward invoices."

The post-war era's most celebrated ballplayer will garner several of the sale's highest prices once the final hammer falls, with three Mickey Mantle entries—1953 Topps, PSA Mint 9, 1951 Bowman, PSA NM-MT 8, and 1952 Topps, PSA NM 7 – each expected to deliver six-figure results.

Noteworthy entries from the first great bubble gum issue include a PSA NM-MT 8 example of Babe Ruth #144 and an uncut sheet of 1933 Goudeys.

Top-ranked PSA registry sets include the 1910-12 P2 Sweet Caporal Baseball Pin set, the 1911 T212-3 Obak PCL issue and an ultra-rare 1935 Schutter-Johnson Candy near set.

Heritage will also provide collectors of modern cardboard with its widest array of options in a Heritage catalog to date: dozens of 21st century rarities celebrating such active superstars as Mike Trout, Stephen Curry and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
