MeiGray has launched a fresh round of Connor McDavid game-used items through its auction platform.
Up for bid through early August are five sticks and a pair of game-used skates. One of the sticks is from his rookie season of 2016-17.
McDavid has won back-to-back Art Ross trophies as the NHL’s leading scorer and was the 2016-17 MVP.
Sticks start with a minimum bid of $750 while the skates already have a $1,500 opener. The auction runs through August 2 at MeiGrayAuctions.com.
One of the earliest Louisville Slugger baseball bats in existence is at auction right now but it was originally found in the closet of an historic home in Virginia nearly 30 years ago. Virginia Stinnett discovered it after her father’s death but forgot about it until recently.
It took some detective work to identify and date. Virginia reached out to Steven Keyman of Keyman Collectibles, who offers a free bat dating guide on his website. His research uncovered some interesting information about Louisville Slugger in the late 19th century. The bat story was also featured on Forbes.com this week.
The bat is now Lot #1 in the current Goldin Auctions catalog where it’s expected to fetch several thousand dollars.
