Spring 2017 Major League Baseball "Set Registry Masters" Premium Auction
The number of Pop 1 PSA 10 and low pop highest graded PSA Master Set Registry items we're offering this month from the likes of Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Pete Rose, Nolan Ryan, and George Brett is staggering. I think it's a save bet to say that no other other auction in recent memory has offered as many Pop 1, Pop 2, and Pop 3 highest graded masterpieces in one setting. As impressive as the rarest offerings from any of these players is, however, our Sandy Koufax cards this month could feasibly have headlined their own auction.
Three of the Sandy Koufax cards we're offering this month are highest graded Pop 1 examples, the single finest cards on record in the hobby. Another is a highest graded Pop 2, and two others are highest graded Pop 3s. Offered here is one of those latter highest graded Pop 3s, a 1966 LA Dodgers Postcard recently graded PSA 9 Mint. Only two others have ever graded as high, and none have graded higher.
With just 139 total items on PSA's Sandy Koufax Master Set Registry, what this means is that a new collector could win these half dozen highest graded cards and with a little more work place his collection within the top five or ten sets ever assembled. Even more exciting, winning bids on some or all of these cards could allow a top five or top ten set to advance all the the way up the leader board to become one of the top three Koufax sets in existence, perhaps even overtaking the #1 spot.
