Collect Auctions Nov. 29 Auction Features One-of-a-Kind Lefty Grove Items

Two one-of-a-kind Lefty Grove items will be featured in Collect Auctions’ Nov. 29 auction, including his Major League Baseball Lifetime Pass and an antique Zenith radio that was given to him by his teammates when Grove won his 300th game. It’s the first time either item has been offered for sale. Bidding opens Nov. 19 at www.collectauctions.com.

Grove’s silver-plated Lifetime Pass measures 2-3/4×4-1/4 inches and reads, “The National and American Leagues of Professional Baseball, Present This Lifetime Pass to Lefty Grove, In Appreciation of Long and Meritorious Service, William Harridge, American League, Ford Frick, National League” engraved on the front. The back is unmarked except for the manufacturer’s inscription, “Lambert Bros. Jewelers N.Y.” appearing at the bottom.

The Zenith radio measures 29x18x21-1/2 inches and was originally purchased from Grove’s niece. It’s been professionally restored and is in fine working condition, with an attached nameplate reading, “LEFTY GROVE, CONGRATULATIONS FROM YOUR TEAMMATES BOSTON RED SOX ON YOUR 300TH VICTORY, JULY 25, 1941.” The radio arrives with supporting paperwork, including a photo of the radio signed by Dom DiMaggio, Bobby Doerr and Herb Hash, a picture of the radio before it was restored and a handwritten letter from Hash mentioning the radio.

In addition, this auction will include a 1928 Lefty Grove “Lucky Strike” Trolley Card Ad Sign; a press pass from Grove’s first win (May 4, 1925); an unsigned Grove tax return from 1926; and other Grove items, including four different signed items, photos and other Grove memorabilia.
