Braves’ Auction Raises $90,000

Atlanta Braves memorabilia, including game-worn jerseys, autographed baseballs, photos, lineup cards, and other items were up for auction to benefit the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

Atlanta Braves Foundation Weekend generated an all time high of more than $90,000 for the Atlanta Braves Foundation and its Grants Program over the weekend.

Top silent auction items in the sale held in the Hank Aaron room at Turner Field included a Braves bat signed by Andruw Jones, Chipper Jones, John Smoltz, Brian McCann and Edgar Renteria that sold for $1800. An autographed John Smoltz glove and photo sold for $1500 and a Brian McCann autographed catcher’s mask fetched $1000.

Some collectors, though, were a little disappointed in the prices and the lack of identification on items.

The Atlanta Braves Foundation is the non-profit arm of the Atlanta Braves that actively supports community organizations and their programs within the metro Atlanta area. Since its inception in 1992, the Atlanta Braves Foundation has provided support to thousands of metro Atlanta based organizations and has annually contributed more than 1 million dollars in financial and in-kind assistance to the community.
