Ah, the hype surrounding the National Convention is starting to ramp up. $1 million will do that. That is the reward offered by Lelands to anyone who brings in the confession papers from 1919 Chicago Black Sox scandal.
We’ve all heard about the Babe Ruth jersey that sold for $4.4 million recently. Now see the jersey in person at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore courtesy of Lelands – the auction company that bought the jersey for a private collector.
A lot of personal collections have come to auction of late, from Julius Erving to Ted Williams to Tommy John. Lelands is serving up another round of personal items, this time related to boxing heavyweight Mike Tyson.
In an auction live now and ending Dec. 16, Lelands.com is offering one of three known Harmon Killebrew game-used Washington Senator jerseys, a Pele game-used jersey and some amazing memorabilia from Jeter’s 3,000th hit and Frank Robinson’s 500th home run.
