Fox Business News checks out some of the items in next weekend’s Louisville Slugger auction
One of the few surviving examples of Jackie Robinson game-used gear is the featured item in the upcoming Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory auction.
The jersey, which dates from Robinson’s second year as perhaps baseball’s most important pioneer, was saved from the hand-me-down pile and has remained in a private collection for about 20 years. It was recently on display in New York, but now it’s on the auction block with a current high bid of nearly $59,000. It’s expected to sell much more when the hammer falls November 14.
The Robinson jersey was just one of the items in the Fox Studios last week when Hunt Auctions’ president David Hunt did a little show and tell with the anchors.
