Legendary Baseball Cards Auction: T206 Magie, Babe Ruth, and More

Huggins & Scott, a renowned name in the world of sports memorabilia auctions, is set to enthral baseball enthusiasts with a remarkable collection up for grabs this spring. Among the treasures awaiting passionate collectors is the coveted T206 Sherry “Magie” error card, a prized possession among the elite ‘Big Four’ of the T206 series.

These vintage gems offer a glimpse into the rich history of baseball memorabilia.

Moreover, the auction boasts an impressive selection of post-war baseball cards, featuring iconic pieces such as a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie card (PSA 3), a 1948-49 Leaf Jackie Robinson rookie (PSA 2), Hank Aaron’s 1954 Topps rookie (PSA 6) and 1955 Topps (PSA 8), a 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax (PSA 7), and a 1952 Topps Eddie Mathews rookie high number (PSA 4).
