A Preview Of The Biggest April Sports Card Auctions

April sports card auctions

April is a big month in sports. Baseball gets underway. Hockey and Basketball start to heat up as the playoffs approach. And if you squint hard enough, you can almost see the NFL pre-season in the distance.

As spring really starts to warm up, so does the auction action across the major auction houses. Let’s take a swing around the horn and see what is available for our bidding enjoyment this month.

Goldin Auctions Weekly Auction

With 3,600 items, this one has a bit of everything, but skews towards baseball and modern.

There are high end items of Damian Lillard, Tiger Woods, LeBron James, and Kevin Garnett, just to name a few.

There’s even close to 300 comic books in the auction, including an Amazing Spider Man #1. Or perhaps you enjoy toys or tickets, they have that too.

Note that Goldin also has weekly auctions ending on April 20th and April 27th.

There’s lots of more fun here, too. How cool would it be to rip a 1976 Topps Baseball Cello Box? There are tickets from Hank Aaron and Michael Jordan’s first games. How great would it have been to attend one of those?
