The 2015 All-Star Auction is set for Tuesday, July 14, just hours before the National and American Leagues settle home field advantage in the World Series.
Forty-five years after the game was held at what was then ‘new’ Riverfront Stadium, the festivities return to Cincinnati this year. An appraisal fair, spread out over several days, will take place at the Duke Energy Center ahead of the auction, which will include dozens of historic pieces of baseball memorabilia as well as some items that won’t keep average Joes out of the bidding.
As we reported last month, Johnny Bench has consigned several items to the sale including some All-Star Game rings and an important game-used bat.
Company president David Hunt visited the CNBC Studios Tuesday and did some show and tell with the hosts of Squawk Box while also discussing the strength of the sports memorabilia market in general. The video is below. If you can’t see it, click here.
