Mickey Lolich Collection Offered By Collect Auctions – Bidding Ends Nov. 14, 2019

Collect Auctions Last Call To Consign to The April 5th Catalog AuctionCollect Auctions has the full-sized World Series Trophy from Series MVP Lolich, along with a couple dozen other pieces from his fabled career, as showcase items in the current auction that closes on Nov. 14.  It was the last World Series in the pre Divisional Playoff era, when the AL Champion Detroit Tigers faced off against the NL dynasty of the St. Louis Cardinals, appearing in the Fall Classic for the third time in five years. It was hyped as a battle between 31-game winner Denny McLain and the great Bob Gibson, coming off the finest season of his legendary career. And somewhere along the way the script flipped and the leading man became Mickey Lolich.

The spectacular full-size trophy headlines an array that also includes Lolich’s 1972 game-worn road uniform, a 1968 World Series game-used bat, a signed ball from the 1971 All-Star Game in Detroit and a host of other pieces. All of these treasures from Lolich’s personal collection are clamoring for the spotlight in an auction that also boasts a similarly imposing lineup of unopened material, with many originating directly from famed collector/dealer Larry Fritsch, an absolutely unprecedented assortment of high-grade vintage hockey sets (many entirely PSA-graded and ranking high on the Registry), complete sets, signed cards and photos, literally hundreds of game-worn jerseys, game-used bats and signed balls, plus a whole lot more. Mickey Lolich was one of the top lefthanders in the American League for more than a decade, with a streak of 11 seasons with 14 or more wins, a 217-181 lifetime record, 2,832 strikeouts and 3.44 ERA in his 16-year career. His career-high 25 wins in 1971 came in a year when he managed to pitch 376 innings, a level that had not been reached by a modern hurler since Babe Ruth was still on the hill.

Collect Auctions ends November 14 and bidders can view each lot on our web site at www.collectauctions.net. There are more than 1,000 lots of vintage sports cards and sets; a great mix of signed baseballs, photos, jerseys, game-used bats, etc.; an unparalleled selection of vending, cello and wax boxes, including a 1976 Topps Football wax box; more than 40 items from the Mickey Lolich Collection, including his 1968 World Series Trophy; an impressive run of hockey sets, with many PSA-graded and highly ranked on the PSA Set Registry; a collection of signed jerseys and balls from an ex-MLB player and coach; and much more. Bidding ends Thursday, November 14 at 9:00 p.m. CST (10:00 EST).
