Tom Seaver USC jersey
This is the only known collegiate Seaver jersey sourced from the team’s student manager.

Willie Mays 1957 Bat
The Say Hey Kid is considered to be the greatest all-around baseball player. Mays’ bat comes with an LOA from the consignor that in part states, “I personally received this baseball bat directly from Willie Mays in 1957. I was lucky enough to be on the field with my mother pre-game during batting practice. Mays handed me his bat to hold while he penned his auto. I shouted to him about his bat and he replied with “keep it kid!” Accompanied by a PSA/DNA LOA grading the bat a GU 9.5 and our consignor’s LOA. Bidding began at $10,000. Additional informational on Mays bat can be found at https://greyflannelauctions.com/1957_Willie_Mays_New_York_Giants_Game_Used_Bat__PS-LOT46967.aspx.

Bench won the Rookie of The Year award and first of 10 Gold Gloves in his first full season in 1968. There are conclusive photo-matches to multiple images of Bench wearing this jersey including his Topps rookie card. Accompanied by a Photo-Match.com LOA confirming the multiple matches and an SGC Grob LOA grading the jersey “Excellent.” Bidding began at $10,000. Additional information can be viewed at https://greyflannelauctions.com/1968_Johnny_Bench_Cincinnati_Reds_Rookie_MLB_Debut-LOT46965.aspx.

DiMaggio and Monroe signed the lad’s advertisement for Eddie Bergman and his orchestra at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Accompanied by a Full JSA LOA grading the signatures an 8 and a LOA from our consignor. Bidding began at $5,000.
