Million-Dollar Yankees Collection at SCP Auctions – Bidding June 5-22, 2019

One of the most comprehensive and impressive single-owner New York Yankees collections is at auction June 5th courtesy of SCP Auctions as the Southern California auctioneer celebrates its 40th anniversary in the hobby. The Pinstripe Dynasty Collection features nearly 350 fascinating lots all with one common denominator – the most decorated team in sports history. View the on-line interactive catalog here. Bid, view and register for the auction at scpauctions.com.

THIS AUCTION IS CLOSING LOT BY LOT USING THE “30-MINUTE RULE.” THE 30-MINUTE CLOSING PERIOD BEGINS SATURDAY, JUNE 22 AT 7PM PST / 10 PM EST.

Built over several decades, the collection celebrates every facet of Yankees history from its majestic ballparks, magical moments and milestones, to the players and personnel who have shaped the franchise going back to its Highlanders roots in the early part of the 20th century.

At the heart is an incredible run of Yankees team-signed baseballs from 1923 to present, highlighted by exceptional examples from key seasons such as 1923, 1927, 1932 and 1951. In addition, there are hundreds of single-signed baseballs – offered singularly and in groups – demonstrating one passionate man’s relentless pursuit of an autograph from every player ever to don pinstripes. The true character of the collection is its scope and diversity.

This masterful assemblage includes dozens of original photographs (many Type I and autographed), game used jerseys, bats and caps, notable awards, player and manager contracts, tickets, programs and other ephemera with the common thread of quality and historical relevance befitting its subject. Pinstriped legends from every era – from Murderer’s Row to the Bronx Bombers to the Bronx Zoo – are represented including Ruth, Gehrig, Dickey, DiMaggio, Berra, Ford, Mantle, Maris, Munson, Mattingly, Jeter, Rivera, et al.
