Memory Lane showcases million-dollar Mickey Mantle collection at National Sports Collectors Convention
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
But it will have something everyone should see — and a little something everyone can take home with them.
The Tustin, Calif.-based auction house will have on display the multi-million dollar Mickey Mantle collection of Don Spence, who has amassed all of The Mick’s base cards from 1951 to 1969 in PSA 10 or PSA 9 condition — a stash that carries an estimated value of as much as $3 million. Six of the cards, according to population reports, are the highest-graded specimens in existence.
Collectors who stop by the booth to see the cards can take with them a memento of their visit — a poster that shows the collection.
