Historic Ali, Ozzie Smith, Mantle and Ruth Memorabilia Highlight SCP Auctions Fall Auction

The bidding for the Angelo Dundee Estate Collection of boxing memorabilia, the Ozzie Smith Collection of baseball memorabilia, Babe Ruth’s c. 1922 team sweater and Mickey Mantle’s 1964-1967 model game-worn jacket is expected to heat up this week, as collectors scramble to secure these coveted pieces of sports history before SCP Auctions’ fall auction comes to a close this weekend. The Dundee collection ends on Friday, Nov. 30 while the remainder of the auction ends on Saturday, Dec. 1 at SCP Auctions.

Two pairs of gloves from Muhammad Ali’s two most legendary fights top the bidding in SCP Auctions’ fall auction. His fight-worn gloves, including Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) gloves from his February 25, 1964 bout against Sonny Liston, sit at $241,577 and are expected to rise dramatically. Ali’s gloves from his March 8, 1971 bout against Joe Frazier (Ali-Frazier I) have a current bid of $219,615. Jim Dundee, the late Angelo’s son, plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale to the Muhammad Ali Foundation and the auction will also help the Dundee family fulfill Angelo’s wish that necessary medical care be provided and funded for Jim’s sister, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.

Other top bids come from the Smith Collection of baseball memorabilia, including his 13 Gold Glove Awards from 1980-1992, a legendary T210 Old Mill Joe Jackson card, Ruth sweater, the Mantle jacket and the personal basketball memorabilia of Basketball Hall of Famers Sam Jones and Oscar Robertson.
