CRANSTON, R.I. - July 26, 2023 - PRLog -- A copy of Marvel Comics X-Men #1 from September 1963, two Pokémon booster boxes from 1999, Goudey baseball cards 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.

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.

The copy of Marvel Comics X-Men #1 from Sept. 1963 features the origin and first appearance of the X-Men and Magneto (est. $8,000-$12,000). The book is graded CGC 3.5, with off-white pages, and is presented in a CGC case. Also, a copy of Marvel Comics Amazing Spider-Man # 121 from June 1973, featuring the "death" of Gwen Stacy and an appearance by the Green Goblin, graded CGC 9.6, with white pages and in a CGC case, should finish at $1,800-$2,400.

The 1999 Pokémon Wizards of the Coast Base Unlimited booster box, factory sealed with tight and intact WOTC branded cellophane wrap, showing Charizard box art with a single country code on the bottom, has an estimate of $8,000-$12,000. It's a great, fresh-to-the-market booster box from the original purchaser. The new owner will have to decide whether to break the box.

The same dilemma awaits the winning bidder for the 1999 Pokémon Wizards of the Coast Fossil 1st edition booster box (est. $8,000-$12,000).

Internet bidding will be facilitated by,, and the mobile app "Bruneau & Co." on iTunes or GooglePlay.
