Worthridge Official Debut Launch – Inaugural Auction Starts June 8th

worthridge5-19-14Today we are excited to announce the start of our new company, Worthridge, Inc. After many years of buying and selling quality memorabilia and collectibles, we recently created an online site dedicated to hosting auctions and providing a retail marketplace for our customers. Our debut auction is set to begin on June 8, and we would love it if you would visit our website. Be sure to register on the site as well – this is a quick and easy process, and it will ensure that you receive auction and retail updates, are placed on our catalog mailing list, and are able to bid in upcoming auctions.

Worthridge is the culmination of over 20 years of memorabilia and collectibles experience. We began as a small baseball card store in South Florida, and over the years we have grown and been privileged to supply the industry with some of the finest memorabilia and collectibles known. Since moving to the Triad area of North Carolina in 2007, we have expanded to include other areas of expertise such as coins and currency, guitars, comics, sports cards, autographs, estate jewelry, watches, historical and entertainment memorabilia, and as always, sports memorabilia.

Notable items that Worthridge has recently provided the industry are a Sandy Koufax game-used glove, Ray Nitschke’s 1967 Super Bowl II Ring, a George Mikan game-used Minneapolis Lakers Jersey, a 1923 Gibson F-5 Lloyd Loar Mandolin and a 1927 Gibson F-5 Fern Mandolin, and Sitting Bull’s Top Hat which was gifted to him by United States President Chester Arthur.

In our upcoming sports memorabilia auction, we are honored to represent the personal collection of NFL Hall-of-Fame player, Reggie White. White amassed a record of impressive stats and awards during his 15-year career in the NFL, playing for the Packers, the Eagles, and the Panthers. He is known today as one of the most decorated NFL players of all-time. Some of the other athletes represented in the auction are Johnny Moore, Burt Shotton, Jack Dittmer, Les Nunamaker, and Willie and Rube Foster. A sampling of the items includes two San Antonio Spurs NBA Championship rings from 1999 and 2003, a 1915 World Series Unused Ticket from Babe Ruth’s first World Series, an oversized presentation boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali, as well as a 1972 fight poster signed by Ali and opponent Bob Foster. The auction also boasts claim to Burt Shotton’s 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers National League Championship Ring, as well as many other one-of-a-kind items. The auction begins on June 8, and will run for three weeks until its close on June 29.

We are also extremely honored to offer for sale on our retail site, a very rare piece of sports history – the pre-ban 1919-1920, game-used bat of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson. An illiterate country boy from rural Pickens County, South Carolina, Joe Jackson was certainly not the prototypical sports icon. But his accomplishments at the plate during the last decade of the Deadball Era, and his subsequent ban from baseball in the aftermath of the 1919 Black Sox Scandal, have made Jackson one of the most curious and collectible figures in the sports memorabilia world. According to bat expert John Taube, this bat was manufactured specifically for Joe Jackson in 1919 or 1920, prior to his ban from Major League Baseball. The full script “Joe Jackson” signature further increases the bat’s scarcity. This is only the second full script signature bat known to exist. Previous Jackson bats had a blank barrel, and Jackson bats produced after his ban from baseball featured only his last name in script or block letters. This bat was likely used in Jackson’s final two years with the White Sox. The bat is graded PSA/DNA GU 7 by Taube.

For the past two decades, we have been privileged to represent some of the finest items in our industry, and honored to provide collectors with an avenue to obtain great, one-of-a-kind items. We are taking consignments now for all upcoming auctions in all categories of memorabilia and collectibles.
