SCP Auctions will offer a 1968 Ernie Banks Cubs jersey in its August Mid-Summer Classic. Completely unknown to the collecting community, it has rested quietly for more than 40 years in the possession of a Cubs-loving family by the name of the Bermans.
One of the top collection of game-used jerseys is going on the auction block courtesy of SCP Auctions. The company was selected to bring the Delbert Mickel Estate Collection to the market, highlighted by several examples of game-used jerseys from Hall of Famers.
Game-worn Negro league jerseys are a tough find in themselves. A jersey worn by a Negro league player in the Hall of Fame is even more difficult to uncover. SCP Auctions will feature a circa 1927 Willie Foster Chicago American Giants jersey in its Dec. 7 sale.
