Steiner Sports knew it had the goods with Jackie Robinson game-used items, including his last glove ($373,000) and bat ($114,000). Other top items include a Mickey Mantle signed contract and a 1924 World Series ticket signed by numerous Hall of Famers.
The last known glove worn by Jackie Robinson isn’t the only game-used artifact drawing attention from Steiner Sports. The firm’s “Ground-Breaking” Auction also hosts jerseys from Stan Musial, Gil Hodges and Walter Payton, along with some memorable balls linked to Babe Ruth.
When Steiner Sports puts on an auction, they don’t mess around. The latest lineup features 1,866 lots, headlined by a Jackie Robinson game-used glove, but includes price points to satisfy nearly any collector.
Adding to the the Steiner 25th anniversary celebration is a stellar auction that now includes items from the personal collection of Bob Knight, such as his championship rings and Olympic gold medal. This is joined by Don Larsen’s “perfect game” jersey.
