1952 Topps Mantle, Carlton Uniform Top Huggins & Scott Auctions

A complete uniform worn by Hall of Famer Steve Carlton during his finest big league season was one of the major targets in Huggins & Scott’s latest catalog auction. The 1972 Phillies jersey and pants had been virtually untouched in the 38 years since Carlton wore it while winning the National League Cy Young award. It brought a winning bid of $17,000. With the 17.5% buyer’s premium added on, the final realized price was $19,975. In ‘72, Carlton had one of the best seasons by a pitcher in baseball history, finishing 27-10 with a 1.98 ERA and 310 strikeouts for a Phillies team that finished with a 62-94 record.
