In the world of sports memorabilia, few items stir as much excitement as rare baseball cards, and the PWCC December Premier Auction is no exception. Within this highly anticipated event, two of the most coveted cards from the T206 set, known as the Big Four, are up for grabs, drawing the attention of collectors worldwide.
A standout in this auction is the SGC 1 graded T206 Eddie Plank card, one of the rarest cards in existence. Only 39 Plank cards have received a grade from SGC, with an additional 21 graded by PSA. Despite showing signs of age and wear, including paper loss, creasing, and corner and edge damage, the value and rarity of the Plank card remain undisputed. The appearance of this card at auction is a noteworthy event, as it marks the fourth time this year that a Plank card has been made available for purchase. Notable previous sales include an SGC 1 Plank card fetching $75,000 last February and a PSA 2.5 variant commanding an impressive $168,000 in August.
Joining the Plank card in its rarity is the PSA 2 graded Sherry “Magie” error card, another prestigious item from the T206 set. This card features a misspelling of Sherry Magee’s last name, making it a historic and sought-after treasure. It sits alongside other renowned rarities in the collection, such as the T206 Honus Wagner and “NY Nat’l” Joe Doyle cards.
Beyond these historic items, the auction also features an impressive array of Michael Jordan cards, showcasing the enduring legacy and popularity of the basketball legend. Collectors will have the opportunity to bid on notable highlights from the Jordan collection, including the 1997 Metal Universe Championship Precious Metals (#/50) graded BGS 9, the 1998 Skybox Premium Star Rookies (#/50) graded PSA 8, the 1997 Skybox E-X 2001 Essential Credentials Future (#/72) graded PSA 9, and the 1984-85 Star Company XRC in both PSA 8 and BGS 9 grades. These cards serve as a testament to Jordan’s impact on the sport and his continued relevance among collectors.
In addition to the baseball and basketball memorabilia, the auction features modern hockey treasures. Noteworthy items include the 2015-16 Upper Deck The Cup Gold Foil Connor McDavid RPA (#/12) and the 2005 Upper Deck The Cup Sidney Crosby RPA (#/99), both graded BGS 8. These cards highlight the talent and allure of hockey’s biggest stars and are sure to garner attention from hockey enthusiasts and collectors alike.
The PWCC December Premier Auction has already begun and will continue accepting bids until December 21st, providing collectors with a rare opportunity to own a piece of sports history. Whether it’s the highly sought-after T206 baseball cards, the iconic Michael Jordan collection, or the modern hockey treasures, this auction promises to be an exciting event for collectors, offering a chance to acquire valuable and significant pieces of sports memorabilia.
