Coveted Items From Tony Gwynn’s Personal Memorabilia Collection Featured In SCP Auctions 2017 Winter Premier Auction

Consignment Deadline Closing for SCP Auctions Winter Premier AuctionSCP Auctions is excited to announce that it is featuring additional baseball memorabilia from the personal collection of MLB great Tony Gwynn that encompasses more than two dozen lots that are online through Sat., Jan. 21, at www.scpauctions.com. This marks the second time SCP Auctions is offering items directly from Alicia Gwynn, Tony’s widow, who acknowledged that a portion of the proceeds will go toward the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation, a non-profit based in San Diego that focuses on improving opportunities for today’s youth.

Some of the items now up for bid include Tony’s 2007 Baseball Hall of Fame induction ring; four silver bats commemorating four of his N.L. batting titles; five All-Star Game rings; two Silver Slugger Awards; and two game-used baseballs marking his very first career major league home run (8/22/82) as well as his milestone 3,000th career hit (8/6/99).

“My husband was a man of honor and integrity who really wanted to make a difference in this world,” said Alicia Gwynn. “Just like the first auction, this one serves two objectives: to share his baseball memorabilia with the fans who loved him and to give something back to the city that treated us so well.”

A standout player in baseball and basketball at San Diego State University, Gwynn was drafted on June 10, 1981, by both the San Diego Padres (third round) and the NBA’s San Diego Clippers (10th round). Electing to play baseball, Gwynn went on to have one of the best careers on record as he batted better than .300 for 19 consecutive seasons, surpassing Honus Wagner’s National League record set from 1897-1913. A 15-time MLB All-Star, Gwynn recorded 3,141 hits during his prolific playing days and collected eight N.L. batting titles along the way to tie Wagner’s other longstanding mark. He also played a major role in helping the Padres reach the World Series twice (1984 and ’98), the team’s only trips to the Fall Classic. Gwynn retired after the 2001 season and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007. The man often referred to as “Mr. Padre” died on June 16, 2014, following complications from salivary gland cancer. He was 54 years old.

Online bidding is open to registered bidders only at www.scpauctions.com and closes on Saturday, Jan. 21. For more information on how to participate, please call 949-831-3700. The Tony and Alicia Gwynn (TAG) Foundation was organized in San Diego in 1995 by Alicia Gwynn. The TAG Foundation is a non-profit, 5013(c) charity dedicated to creating and supporting programs that enhance opportunities for youth to become healthy, educated, and productive citizens.
