SPORTS MEMORABILIA/COINS & CURRENCY/STAMPS
Playball! The sports portion of the sale is highlighted by an early 1960s Louisville Slugger bat, both game used and autographed by St. Louis Cardinals legend Stan Musial. Also included is a pair of batting gloves, both game used and autographed by St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols. For the Yankee collector we have a number of nice Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, and Joe DiMaggio pieces. Most notably we feature a 1947 American Legion Dinner Menu hand signed by Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Joe Cronin; certainly a very special item! A 1922 Neilson's Chocolate Ty Cobb along with a near complete 1952 Bowman Baseball set are also of special note. The hockey section has a number of autographed and game used sticks and jerseys including a very attractive Wayne Gretzky autographed stick and a pair of game used goalie sticks hand signed by Curtis Joseph and Grant Fuhr, respectively. We are also offering a very nice 1980-81 Topps Basketball set in our Basketball section. Immediately following the Sports sale, there are some great Coins & Currency lots featuring an interesting group of seldom seen fractional currency. There are some spectacular currency lots including three consecutive graded â€˜BISONâ€™ notes of 1901, all very fine to extremely fine; an 1891 "Daniel Manning" $20 silver certificate; and an "Indian Chief" $5 silver certificate, graded choice uncirculated 64, among others. Plus, there are 42 Graded Stamps to close out the sale.
