It’s come to this. Major League Baseball Auctions is selling empty beer cans, champagne bottles and popped corks from the clubhouse celebration following Tim Lincecum’s July 13 no-hitter in San Diego (yes, they come with official MLB Authentication stickers).
Lincecum struck out 13 Padres and threw 148 pitches in notching the first no-hitter of his career that night.
More than 30 items from the 15th no-hitter in Giants history are on the block along with the empty alcohol containers including:
- Numerous game-used baseballs signed by Lincecum
- Several player jerseys from that night including the one worn by catcher Buster Posey. Bidding had already passed $3,200 as of Monday
- Three bases used in the final four innings of the game, each signed and inscribed by Lincecum
- A signed replica lineup card
Bidding is open through August 26 and proceeds go to MLB Charities.
More than a dozen Bud Light and Coors Lite cans are being offered along with several champagne bottles used in the post-game celebration inside the Giants’ clubhouse. Bidding has been strong on the game-used items but not quite so active in the empty booze department. The champagne bottles sit at around $20 each with cans at $5-6 after three days of bidding.
