Ozzie Smith’s 13 Gold Glove Awards from 1980-1992 sold for $519,203, the only known Babe Ruth’s c. 1922 team sweater went for $250,642, Oscar Robertson’s 1963-64 Most Valuable Player Award attracted a bid of $177,632 and Paul Hornung’s Heisman Memorial Trophy sold for $173,102 in SCP Auctions’ November auction which concluded early Sunday. All prices are inclusive of a 20 percent buyers’ premium.

Two significant pairs of Muhammad Ali fight-worn gloves – Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) gloves from his February 25, 1964 bout against Sonny Liston and his gloves from his March 8, 1971 bout against Joe Frazier (Ali-Frazier I) – each sold for $385,848 in the first session of SCP Auctions’ auction which concluded early Saturday. The sale of these two items set a world-record price for any piece of boxing memorabilia at public auction.
