As we reported last month, a T206 Honus Wagner card last sold in the 1990s has been consigned to SCP Auctions. J. Ross Greene, a long-time collector from Peachtree City, Georgia has held the card since then. It’s believed to be the first one ever featured in a newspaper story and that decades-old lineage is a big part of the appeal.
SCP Auctions is proud to announce that its 2017 Spring Premier online auction will feature the J. Ross Greene Collection. Born of a childhood passion for sports and history, the collection represents a lifetime accumulation of cards and memorabilia honoring diamond and gridiron greats from the turn of the century to the modern era. The depth of Greene’s passion is reflected in the vastness of his collection, which boasts more than 100,000 pre-war and post-war baseball and football cards gathered over more than half a century. In addition to complete runs of Topps and Bowman baseball and football sets, the collection includes hundreds of Hall of Fame stars and key rookie cards to be offered as singles and group lots.
