Fans who come into one New York sports bar get a bonus with their beer. A chance to take a gander at some unique and valuable pieces of sports history.
You can’t travel far without running into a sports bar with memorabilia on the walls. A replica jersey or two, maybe a few autographed photos. They are weak imitations of the Stadium sports bar.
James Walsh and his father Joe have gone to great lengths to adorn their place with some one-of-a-kind pieces including the 1936 Heisman Trophy won by Yale end Larry Kelley, Mickey Mantle’s 1956 Triple Crown trophy, a Babe Ruth contract and thousands of other pieces. So that’s who you’re bidding against in those big auctions.
