Beckett Auctions is pleased to announce the acquisition of items from The Benanti Collection. This collection comes from a former employee of Xograph, the lenticular printing company who was responsible for the three-dimensional items released by Topps and Kellogg’s throughout the 1970s and 1980s.  He later worked for Sportflics and also did photography for Topps.  The collection includes everything from uncut sheets to prototype cards and signed baseballs. It also includes an authenticated Andy Warhol “Daisy” three-dimensional print.

“This is a massive and incredibly significant collection”, said Rob Springs, Business Lead for the Auction Division.  “Many of the items we will be offering over the next few months have never been seen in the hobby. We are very pleased to be able to offer these items up for auction in both our Goodwin and Beckett Monthly auction houses.”

Notable pieces in the collection include the Warhol print, a 1968 Topps 3-D Test File Copy Roberto Clemente, a 1968 Topps 3-D Prototype of Bart Starr, as well as several notable uncut sheets from the Kellogg’s 3-D era.
