Catalogues. We get them in the mail, whether we want them or not. Most wind up in the trash. Those that we look at might contain, at most, a few items of interest. Try to imagine a catalogue that is 741 pages long, an inch and a half thick, weighing over 2 pounds where it's a challenge to find an item you DON'T want.
I have that catalogue in hand.
The REA, Robert Edward Auctions catalogue just arrived and contains all 1747 of their items up for bids in their current auction. Final day of bidding for these items is Saturday, May 7, 2011. This gorgeous tome includes Pre-1900 Beaseball Cards, 1892-1985 Hall of Fame Baseball Player contracts, Autographed Baseball-Flats-Photographs-Bats, Game Used Jerseys and Bats. Mostly likely some of these items will wind up as swatches or cut autos for future card releases.
While most items are beyond the price range of mere mortals, there are some items that are estimated to end at a few hundred dollars.
Here are some of the amazing items available.
Original Fenway Park Seat signed by Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski and others Estimated $500/$1,000+
