MLB now sees empty champagne bottles from playoff celebrations as marketable, but there’s one infamous bottle that might be a true collector’s item.
They’re not exactly ‘game used’, but maybe ‘celebration used’?
Major League Baseball’s time-honored winning clubhouse celebration includes plenty of bubbly, poured from bottles that are now gathered and sold as ‘authentic memorabilia’.
Last year’s autographed bottles from the Boston Red Sox clubhouse are being offered for $2500-3000 each. A David Ortiz signed bottle from the 2007 pennant-clincher is a little cheaper.
The two World Series wins by the Sox this decade finally broke the curse of the Bambino but back in 1986, there was a legendary chapter being written when the Mets took the Sox champagne party away.
CNBC’s Darren Rovell has the story of maybe the one surviving souvenir bottle of the champagne celebration that never was.
