A copy of Marvel Comics X-Men #1 from September 1963, two Pokémon booster boxes from 1999, Goudey baseball cards for star players from the 1930s, and original cover art for Drift Marlo #1 from 1962 will all come up for bid in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ Summer Pop Culture auction slated for Tuesday, August 8th, beginning at 4 pm Eastern time.

Also titled a Comic, Sports, TCG (Trading Card Games) & Toy auction, the 478-lot sale will offer an eclectic mix of comics, sports, toys, and associated collectibles from collections across New England, online and live in the Bruneau & Co. gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston. A preview will be held in the gallery on auction day when doors open at 8 am.

“I am so excited to offer an electric sale of comics, toys and sports, which is one of the largest catalogs we have produced for pop culture in a while, as we’ve been busy with single owner collections and museum collections,” said Travis Landry, Bruneau & Co.’s Director of Pop Culture.

Landry added, “I’m anxious to see what the early baseball cards, including the Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio cards, do in today’s market. Also, the group lots were a lot of fun to sort. I’m excited for the collectors to see them cross the block.”

The Goudey cards aren’t graded highly, but that will open the door for collectors looking to add Goudey examples to their collections in any condition. They include a 1933 Babe Ruth card #133, graded BVG 1 Poor (est. $3,000-$5,000); a 1933 Lou Gehrig card #92, graded BVG 1 Poor (est. $1,000-$1,500); and a 1938 Joe DiMaggio #250 Heads-Up rookie card, graded BVG 1.5 Fair (est. 1,000-$1,500). All of the Goudey cards are individually housed in BVG cases.To learn more about Bruneau & Co.
