Anyone grab anything last night in the Sterling Sports Auction?

I think this is the most I won at one time:

1909-1911 T206 Howell, Portrait Piedmont Cigarettes SGC 45
1910 E91C George McBride American Caramel SGC 50
1943 World Series Game 2 Ticket Stub PSA Authentic
1954 Topps #201 Al Kaline SGC 30 *Rookie*
1959 Topps #202 Roger Maris PSA 3
1959 Topps #478 Bob "Roberto" Clemente BVG 5
1967 Topps #498 Larry Dierker SGC 92
1978 Topps #703 Jack Morris Rookie SGC 96 MINT
1989 Bowman #266 John Smoltz Rookie SGC 98 GEM MINT


If the back is clean, do you think this Clemente might be a bump candidate? Maybe an SGC 70?

Good time to pick up a Morris rookie, seeing how hes a favorite to get in the hall soon plus its a tough year to. Late seventies cards are tough in 9 an 10.

That's a great Clemente '59, could bump depends on how much wear on those corners hard to tell from scan

I find that its kinda hard to get a bump in a Beckett slab. I would defintely submit it raw. From the looks of it , it has the making of an 80, with 3 sharp corners and good cebtering. The surface will be the deciding factor IMO.

I'd bet on a .5 bump. Looks like some touch on the corners to me. Completly agree on submitting it raw... Better get the jack hammer out!
