A game-worn 1963 Sandy Koufax Los Angeles Dodgers road jersey sold for $429,625 on Saturday night in Goldin Auctions’ 2018 Spring Online Auction.
“The rarity of Koufax game-worn memorabilia combined with its impeccable authenticity and the fact that it was from perhaps his greatest season when he captured the Cy Young, N.L. MVP Award and the World Series MVP makes it truly special,” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions.
In addition to the Koufax jersey, ten lots of Michael Jordan memorabilia including six game-worn jerseys and two pair of game-used sneakers sold for a combined $260,000. In all, the live and online auctions tallied $3.7 million in sales from 600 lots of sports, entertainment and historical memorabilia.
The two-part event opened with a live auction in New York last weekend, headlined by the sale of a 1934 Babe Ruth contract for $282,325.
