Tristar has announced the opening of a new Field of Dreams store in Las Vegas, with appearances scheduled for Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.
The Yankee Stadium sendoff is this Sunday for Mariano Rivera. However, Steiner Sports has got you covered beyond that with a bevy of Mariano Rivera “farewell” items. Many are uniquely inscribed and limited in number.
The beauty of a Steiner Sports auction is that you can spend tens of thousands of dollars on premier items, like a Lou Gehrig single-signed ball if you have the means the desire. But you can also get some great signed pieces for under $100, too. There are thousands of possibilities available right now.
Goldin Auctions knows how to get people’s attention – give them some money. At the upcoming National Convention, Goldin Auctions is offering $1,500 in prizes to those who register to bid in the company’s upcoming auctions, as well as those who are already on their bidding list.
The SCP Auctions sale is just two days into bidding, yet there are some impressive bids for a 1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig Gem Mint 10 (the only example on the market) and a 1996 Green Bay Packers championship ring.
The National Convention is always full of treasures. This year, many auction houses are bringing in great memorabilia to display, including SCP Auctions’ announcement of The Abrams Family Collection of Jackie Robinson memorabilia.
Reality TV will make the rounds to the National Convention, with “A Piece of the Game” to film a segment on sports memorabilia at the hobby’s biggest event.
The number of record and top-selling items in Goldin Auctions’ $2.4 million sale are numerous. Kobe Bryant’s memorabilia brought $433, 531, while Jackie Robinson’s bat reached $159,867 and a T206 Ty Cobb with a Ty Cobb back (PSA 1) brought $120,109.
The final tally is in for the spring Robert Edward Auction event. The rookie card of Babe Ruth and the famous T206 Wagner led the way, but other results – like a Ruth/Gehrig ball for $343,650 – were equally impressive. Let’s go through some of the highlights.
In an event that happened earlier this spring, the Hobby visited the Smithsonian with a presentation on tobacco cards, wire photos and memorabilia. A great night of stories, facts and fun.
