The annual Basketball Hall of Fame auction conducted by Grey Flannel Auctions is now taking place, culminating in the Sept. 7 live portion of the event taking place in Springfield, Mass. Leading the pace thus far are the 1991 All-Star Game jerseys of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.
Babe Ruth isn’t the only Hall of Fame baseball player who can pull in some big bids. A Sandy Koufax jersey from 1965 topped six figures, as did Kobe Bryant’s rookie jersey.
Grey Flannel’s latest sports memorabilia auction includes a wide selection of game-used jerseys, from Sandy Koufax and Reggie Jackson to Larry Csonka and Wayne Gretzky.
Grey Flannel’s Winter Classics Auction tops $1.1 million, with a Mickey Mantle gamer leading the way at $114,000. A lot commemorating Wilt’s 100-point game, complete with scorer’s sheet, program and press ticket, topped ut at $108,000.
“All-Star Dealers” continues with John Taube checking out a Jimmie Foxx bat and the story behind John Wooden’s UCLA sweater.
