Jerseys from Reggie Jackson, Michael Jordan and Thurman Munson will be on the auction block later this month. The trio headline the sports memorabilia lots included in a larger collectibles auction set for May 21 at Phillip Weiss Auctions of Lynbrook, NY.
The Reggie Jackson game-worn set includes a signed jersey, undershirt and pants from the 1974 championship season for the Oakland A’s. The gold jersey and white pants were distinctive of the era when Charlie Finley owned the perennial title contenders.
The Michael Jordan game-worn uniform is from the 1997-1998 season – his final championship season as a member of the Chicago Bulls. Both this uniform and the Reggie Jackson uniform come with letters of authenticity from MEARS. Also sold will be a Wilson pitching wedge golf club from Jordan’s own collection, plus other sports-related items.
A collection of railroad passes given to Brigham Young (the 19th century leader of the Latter Day Saints movement), and a signed photo of Walt Disney are also among the highlights in the auction, which includes over 500 items.
