Here then is a remarkable old-time auction lot that is loaded with important rookies and Hall of Famers, with baseball, basketball and football included in the array. By its nature it begs for a good deal of close examination to find the various treasures within, from the coveted rookie cards of the likes of Wade Boggs, Randy Johnson, Larry Bird, John Elway and Tony Dorsett to classic vintage Topps (mostly) cards of Henry Aaron, Willie Mays, Jim Rice, Ted Williams, Juan Marichal and Jim Palmer and others, occasionally with significant duplication. In the breakdown that follows, the cards listed are the regular-issue Topps versions unless otherwise noted; the modern cards listed (1980 forward) are broadly Near-Mint to Near-Mint to Mint.
