Hall of Famer Wade Boggs apparently accumulated a lot of memorabilia from his days in Boston, New York and Tampa Bay.
The perennial batting champion has consigned them to Hunt Auctions which will offer them at today’s All-Star FanFest auction in St. Louis.
Among the items Boggs is surrendering: the jersey he wore for his 2,999th hit and a game-used baseball from the same game in which he later got his 3,000th hit.
Several other game-used Boggs jerseys, bats, a pair of cleats and batting gloves from the 1999 season are scattered among the hundreds of lots in the auction.
According to a story in Boggs’ hometown paper, Boggs "is offering the items to collectors because he doesn’t have room to display them all at his Tampa home".
