Does anyone watch this show? I love it, they get some cool stuff.

I am at their website looking around when I stumble across this beauty.

Mickey Mantle's 1949 contract!! Signed nicely, Mickey Charles Mantle. What is this beauty gonna sell for? My guess would be an easy $20,000. But I think the cosigner will be leaving money on the table by not taking it to an auction house that deals with sports memorabilia.

I was gonna post the link, but I can't! Do a search for Gallery 63 Auctions and you will find the web site.

I really enjoy the show just wish they would change their clothes....Same blue shirt every episode...It is interesting to see the realized prices...Cant believe their rates of 20%.

It's on the Discovery Channel, Tuesdays, 10 pm ET. They do get some nice stuff there, like recently they sold off a lot of signed sports photos that included Satchell Paige and Jackie Robinson.


And as far as the blue shirt Mr Mint mentioned, those are the official store shirts. You can buy your very own from their website and wear it every day just like they do! :lol:

As far as the 20% sellers premium, I also read they get a 15% buyers premium, so a cool 35% of the final sale off every item!

It's a cool show. I loved the pinball machine and slot machine last week. I'd pay $1500 for a 70's pinball machine in good working condition for sure.
