A couple of Joe DiMaggio’s Yankee Old Timers Day uniforms and one worn by Johnny Sain of the 1948 National League champion Boston Braves were among the hot items at Hunt Auctions’ 25th anniversary live auction Saturday in Exton, PA.
A uniform donned by DiMaggio on multiple occasions during the 1960s as the Bronx Bombers honored past greats sold for $34, 500 against a $10,000-$20,000 pre-sale estimate. A similar uniform worn in 1974 sold for $10,350 in the event, which took place at the Clarion Hotel.
Both DiMaggio uniforms originated in the collection of former Milwaukee Braves shortstop Johnny Logan. Items from the collections of Minnie Minoso, Johnny Mize and Vern Law were also part of the 700 lots in the live portion of the auction.
The top-selling item in the auction was a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card graded SGC 70, which closed at $46,000 including the buyer’s premium.
The second installment of the auction takes place online Monday at HuntAuctions.com.
