SCP Auctions January Auction Winds Down

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

1935-joe-dimaggio-zeenut In just under 24-hours, SCP Auctions latest endeavor will wind down.  The near 30-year old auction house has made it a point of offering top notch items; their latest sampling is no different.  One of the more interesting items is a 1935 Zeenut of Joe DiMaggio.  This pre-rookie card of Joltin’ Joe is particularly noteworthy for three reasons.  First, it was autographed by the Yankee Clipper himself.  Second, the card derives from the Barry Halper collection.  Halper, whose collection first hit the public hands in 1998, was the owner of many of the hobbies most important cards.  Finally, the Zeenut remains wholly intact as it still has the promotional coupon at the bottom of the card.   Many of the early 20th century cards had their coupons redeemed for “valuable premiums” back in the day.

You can still get your bids in if you head over to the SCP Auction site before Thursday evening.
