Cleve's Christmas Auction Preview Part 5: Vintage Cards

Cleve's auctions always have a great selection of vintage cards, and the Christmas auction this Tuesday takes it to a whole 'nother level.  I showed a handful of Mickey Mantle and Dodger cards in previous posts, and here are some other sweet vintage cards that will be up for grabs:
 This Sport Kings Bobby Jones might be the most impressive card in the auction.  Look up the eBay auctions that are going on for it now and you'll see what I mean.  I'm going to be very interested in seeing what this goes for.  All I know is that it won't go home with me.
 This Yogi Berra card might though.  It sits just outside my Top 5 most wanted cards from the Christmas auction.  If it comes at a reasonable price, it's mine.

 I'd be thrilled with either of these graded 1961 cards....
 Or this Al Kaline....
 But I will abso-freaking-lutely freak the freak out if I wind up with this Hank Aaron rookie.  You will never hear the end of it either, dear readers.
 This is an actual autographed card of Dom Dimaggio.
I don't want to get my hopes up, but I feel good about my chances of getting at least one of the above cards.

For those of you interested in these, or any of the other cards from the Christmas auction (or any auction for that matter) Cleve does take write in bids.  You can reach him at:   479-927-0067

That Bobby Jones card is beautiful! Best of luck on grabbing one and hopefully more of these vintage beauties.
