Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron, Jackie Robinson, Honus Wagner, Ted Williams, Roger Maris, Roberto Clemente, Roy Campanella, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays, Cy Young, Satchel Paige, Yogi Berra, Don Drysdale, Stan Musial, and TONS MORE!
Not only does this collection boast an impressive amount of quality cards, but includes and is not limited to: autographs on various items, post cards, photographs (colorized and black & white), exhibition cards, pennants, coins, miniature pennants, action figures, hall of fame busts, baseballs, hats, buttons, calendars, books, newspaper articles and magazines (Harper’s Weekly all the way to Sports Illustrated), and much more.
This collection is by far not only the largest, but most impressive sports memorabilia collections that Leinbach Auction & Realty has ever seen or heard of. This will be the first time that this collection has been brought to light for public eye; the previous owner was extremely reclusive when it came to showing off his prized possessions. Even gurus who knew Vernon Gray Martin, Jr. never saw his collection because he would never allow it. He possessed not only passion but also a discerning eye for quality items, and this collection proves that to the utmost extent. It is our pleasure to bring this auction to you, our customers, in hopes you’ll find that one item (or many more) that you want to add to your very own collection in the making.
