Lelands.com Invitational Auction is Open For Bidding

Lelands.com Invitational Auction In Progress – Ends June 30, 2017Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series Championship ring, the 1919 sale of Ruth from the Red Sox to Yankees contract (the Yankees copy of the deal) – the most important transaction in sports history and the day “The Curse of the Bambino” was born – headline the Lelands.com 1st Annual Invitational Auction, which closes June 30 and consists of a few hundred exceptional quality, high-value lots.

The Lelands.com auction also features a 1955 Sandy Koufax Brooklyn Dodgers rookie jersey, a 1950-51 Joe DiMaggio Yankees game-used uniform, a 1957 Willie Mays New York Giants game-worn, signed jersey from his last Polo Grounds game, the ball from when Pete Rose became the all-time hit king with 4,192 career hits, and a 1939 Lou Gehrig game-used bat.

lelands6-8-17Additional auction highlights include a Ty Cobb game-used factory side-written bat, a high grade Babe Ruth single-signed baseball originally from actor Charlie Sheen, a Mickey Mantle game-used bat and cap, the jersey worn by San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner on April 2, 2017 when he became the first hurler to hit two home runs on Opening Day, a 1962-63 Stan Musial Cardinals game-worn glove, a 1969 Bob Gibson Cardinals game-used, signed uniform, a 1923 Tris Speaker game-used factory side-written bat, a 1962 Warren Spahn Milwaukee Braves game-worn jersey, and Hank Aaron’s 705th home run ball.

The Lelands.com Invitational Auction also boasts a priceless piece of golf history: the gold and silver medals won by pioneering U.S. golfer Chandler Egan at the 1904 Olympics – the last time the sport was played in the Games prior to its return last summer. The incredibly rare and significant medals were recently found in a bookcase in the former home of Egan’s daughter in northeast Ohio.

Also on the auction block are a pair of 1965 Gordie Howe game-worn skates, a 1967-68 Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup Trophy presented to Ralph Backstrom, a 1983-84 Bernard King Knicks game-worn jersey and King’s 1984-85 NBA Leading Scorer Award, as well as Teresa Edwards’ 1984 Olympic U.S. basketball gold medal, an 1892 Sullivan vs. Corbett official boxing program, and a 1974 Billie Jean King match-worn Philadelphia Freedom uniform.

Additionally, the auction features an exceptional collection of horse racing memorabilia headlined by a 1972 Secretariat horseshoe from his maiden race and first win as well as a full set of eight nails worn by the legendary thoroughbred in the Belmont Futurity that year.
