The newly-crowned finest set of 1922 American Caramel E121 baseball cards joins items from the collection of Basketball Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson and Baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith among headliners in SCP Auctions’ Spring Premier Auction.

Evidence from the greatest pro basketball performance ever is seriously lacking. When Will Chamberlain scored 100 points on March 2, 1962 for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks, it was in front of a crowd of roughly 4,000 people.

In 1939, Paul Wunder, a visionary collector from New Orleans, embarked on a successful quest on behalf of his daughter Doris to obtain the autographs of the 11 living inaugural inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY on June 12, 1939.

The record for the most expensive signed baseball in history has been absolutely obliterated. On Sunday, a baseball with the signatures of 11 of the first Baseball Hall of Fame inductees sold at auction for over $600,000.

Until recently, the highest recorded price paid for an non-game-used autographed baseball was $388,375, dropped in 2012 on a ball featuring the signature of Babe Ruth. That mark has now been shattered, to the tune of a whopping $623,369, by a baseball also adorned with the signature of Ruth.
