MEARS Partners with Reggie Jackson for Opening

MEARS will officially launch its museum and auction facility April 17 with Reggie Jackson on hand to fill a variety of roles.

Jackson will spend part of the day helping authenticate his own game-worn and game-used memorabilia for collectors.  Jackson has what MEARS calls a “keen knowledge of his game used equipment” and will add his own personal input to letters of authenticity when appropriate.  Jackson will authenticate bats for $1750 and jerseys for $2750.  The prices alsoReggie Jackson include a signed letter of authenticity and an autograph.

Jackson’s 1977 World Series jersey will be on display.  It’s the same button-down Yankee pinstripe he was wearing when he belted three homers in a game at Yankee Stadium, propelling the Bronx Bombers to a World Series title.

The Hall of Fame outfielder/DH will host a VIP preview of MEARS’ April auction from 4-6 PM, showing off several items from his own collection that have been consigned to the sale.

He’ll also sign autographs at prices ranging from $89-229 per item. Mail orders are being accepted as well.

MEARS’ 15,000 square foot Corporate Research and Conference Center is located in South Milwaukee, WI.
