All types of sports collectibles, equipment, apparel, cards and autographed items will be welcome at the event. “Our company has had a long involvement with vintage and collectible items from all major sports – baseball, football, hockey, basketball and others,” said Grey Flannel’s president, Richard E. Russek. “We’re excited to see what will turn up at our appraisal event, whether it’s from already established collections or straight out of people’s attics. This will be a great opportunity for anyone owning a collectible sports item to find out exactly what it’s worth, and free of charge.”Â

Widely recognized for its staff’s scrupulous and uncompromising methods in authenticating professional sports memorabilia, Grey Flannel Auctions is the official appraiser and authenticator for both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

Among the many history-making items that have been entrusted to Grey Flannel Auctions are the 1978 Heisman Trophy, which sold for $300,000; and Babe Ruth’s immortal New York Yankees “called shot” uniform, which realized more than $1 million.
