Seth Swirsky Talks About Selling Prized Collection

(By Doug Koztoski Sports collectors Digest) – Where to start? Let’s see, there is an autographed baseball of the 1927 Yankees “Murderer’s Row,” with Babe Ruth on the sweet spot. Nice.  Or how about the iconic letter signed by Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, Major League Baseball’s first commissioner, in which he responded to “Shoeless” Joe Jackson’s inquiry about being reinstated into the big leagues after the Black Sox scandal of 1919? (Of course, we know that decision went against the legendary hitter.)

On the lighter side, there is Jose Canseco’s Texas Rangers hat – the same one he wore in 1993, when a ball hit by the Cleveland Indians’ Carlos Martinez bounced off Canseco’s head and landed in the stands for a home run.

All of these pieces – and a couple hundred more – have been in Seth Swirsky’s collection for several years. But that is about to change. On April 7, Heritage Auctions puts the core of these classics in the auction arena. Swirsky, an author and pop songwriter for artists including Taylor Dayne, Celine Dion and Al Green, is comfortable with the artifacts moving on to new owners.
