SCP’s Spring Premier Auction Spectacular

SCP Auctions’ Spring Premier catalog is a treasure trove for sports memorabilia enthusiasts. The spotlight shines on the one and only George Mikan Minneapolis Lakers warm-up suit, a gem signed by the basketball legend himself. This remarkable piece, comprising a jacket and pants adorned with Mikan’s signature, has a prestigious LOA from Sports Investors Authentication and is estimated to command a staggering $400,000 at auction.

George Mikan, a pivotal figure in the history of basketball, has left an indelible mark on the sport. Items linked to Mikan, particularly those worn during games, are highly sought after by collectors. The auction also boasts an array of vintage baseball cards, headlined by a PSA 7 Mickey Mantle 1951 Bowman rookie card, alongside two 1952 Topps Mantles, a 1963 Topps Mantle SGC 9, and a coveted 1933 Goudey #92 Lou Gehrig SGC 9, with the Gehrig card expected to surpass $150,000.

Pete Rose fans will be thrilled to find the second-ranked master set of his cards on offer, following SCP’s previous sale of the top-ranked set last autumn. The event further showcases a range of significant Shohei Ohtani cards and memorabilia, including the jersey worn by Ohtani on Jackie Robinson Day in 2023, predicted to attract six-figure bids, and the ball from Ohtani’s 200th career home run.

The auction’s lineup doesn’t stop there. It includes two pairs of game-worn Michael Jordan shoes, a Roberto Clemente cap, a Ronald Acuna Jr. jersey authenticated through photo matching, and a signed 2023 Tua Tagovailoa jersey. High-end jewelry enthusiasts will marvel at items like a 1957 Mickey Mantle AL MVP award, Olympic gold medals belonging to Jim Hines and Oleksandr Abramenko, a 2003 Florida Marlins World Series ring, and a 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers NBA championship ring.
