You can add Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers to the list of former athletes who’ve turned over their major trophies, awards and other career memorabilia to an upcoming auction.
SCP Auctions, which will handle the collections of John Havlicek, Steve Garvey, Brett Saberhagen and Chris Mullin when it launches its April catalog sale, is selling items from Fingers’ 17 years in Major League Baseball including his 1981 MVP and Cy Young Awards.
Fingers was the most notable closer in the game from the early 1970s through the early 80s and earned Hall of Fame election in 1992. He was a dominant force for the Oakland A’s teams that accomplished the first modern-day “three-peat”, winning the World Series in 1972, 1973 and 1974. In 1974, he was awarded the World Series MVP Award after earning two saves and one win. Fingers won both the American League MVP and Cy Young Award in 1981 while with Milwaukee Brewers.
