Grey Flannel’s History

Grey Flannel was founded in 1989 in New York by Richard Russek and Andy Imperato. Grey Flannel, with their experience and expertise, has developed into the world’s foremost authenticators and dealers of game-used jerseys. In 1994 GFC became the Official Appraisers and Authenticators for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall Of Fame. In 1998 GFC was hired by Sotheby’s to authenticate the uniform collection of Barry Halper. Mr. Halper’s collection rivaled that of the Baseball Hall of Fame in scope and was offered in auction during the early part of the summer of 1999.

GF entered the auction arena in the early fall of 1999. Grey Flannel Auctions to date has held 26 auctions in their 10 year history, satisfying collector needs and auctioning one-of-a-kind pieces of memorabilia with highlights like “The Called Shot” 1932 Babe Ruth Game-Used Jersey, Yankee Stadium Organ played by Eddie Layton, Jim Brown Cleveland Browns Game-Used Jersey, Pete Maravich LSU Game-Used Jersey, and the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame entire collection of enshrinee plaques.

Grey Flannel Auctions has also achieved remarkable prices for the memories of Mrs. Elston Howard, Barry Halper, Mrs. Pete Maravich and many retired Major Leaguers. Grey Flannel Auctions runs twice a year during the early summer and late fall, with an expanding array of Americana memorabilia. Headlined items sold at auction include a $10,000 bill, vintage Coca-Cola Vending Machines, Slot Machines. A gorgeous full-color catalog is available during auction time to registered bidders.

All of us here were quite impressed with the wide knowledge both of you brought to the job.”

Barry Halper (deceased), Baseball Collector Extraordinaire: “I have known Grey Flannel for many, many years. Nobody has studied their craft any harder than GF. They are the finest authenticator of uniforms in the hobby today. Their knowledge and integrity are indisputable.”

Dale A.

Your presentation and forensic analysis was professional, thorough, impressive and enlightening.befitting of this wonderful piece of baseball history.”
