Babe Ruth’s earliest game-used NY Yankees jersey known to exist set a record when New York auction house Lelands.com purchased it for a record $4.4 million—the highest price ever paid for a piece of sports memorabilia or card. The public will have a rare opportunity to view the world’s most famous shirt when Lelands.com displays the jersey at the National Sports Collectors Convention (NSCC), August 1-5, at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Lelands.com is America’s oldest and most respected sports memorabilia auction house, and has handled such landmark collections as The Busch Stadium Collection, The Mickey Mantle Auction of the Greer Johnson Collection, The Harry M.

Lelands wants your cards and memorabilia for our next auction. We will thoroughly go through the material of potential consignors and fully explain to them the steps that should be taken to maximize their return. This includes pre-screening for grading, choosing the grading company that would best benefit their cards, and make an honest assessment of what they can to realize. We view each and every consignment as a partnership and will be with them every step of the way.
We don’t just specialize in graded cards. We have customers for collections in virtually every grade. However, if they a high grade collection no other firm is better suited to handle their ungraded cards through the grading process and to the auction block. If their collections have already been graded we will go through the cards, one at a time, to make sure they are graded at their highest level possible.
Larger collections can earn their own section in one of our award winning catalogs. Collections with values in excess of $1,000,000 can even be featured in their own catalog.
Lelands is the hobby’s first and longest running auction house. We have a mailing list handcrafted over 30 years of service to the hobby. We are here to stay and you can feel safe and secure you are going to get paid. Our full time staff will make your auction experience fun and profitable.
