During a renovation in the 1990s, box seats in Chicago’s Wrigley Field were replaced. Two connected seats from the 1960s were spared and will be available in the upcoming Sports Memorabilia auction, offered by Hindman. The seats are numbered 3 and 4. Bidders may note that the number 3 seat includes a piece of chewed gum stuck underneath. For the baseball card collector, the sale includes a fresh to market 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie card graded by PSA as Authentic. The card was forgotten in a scrapbook for over six decades, so the only damage or alteration is due to the tape residue at the corners.
Another featured item up for bid is a baseball signed by two of game’s most recognizable stars, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. This ball is a 1930s Spalding Babe Ruth Special with red and blue stitching. Cy Perkins, the players’ teammate, also signed on the bottom. The lot includes a full letter of authenticity from James Spence Authentication. Also in the sale is a barnstorming program signed by Willie Mays, Don Newcombe, George Grove, Ernie Banks, Sam Jones, Joe Black, Gene Baker, and Hank Aaron. View any of these lots and register to bid on Bidsquare.
