Hunt Auctions has been busy in Louisville. The company’s annual appraisal fair inside the Slugger Museum continues until Saturday’s live auction event.
Online bidding is already underway for the 700+ lots set to be sold to the highest bidder. Among the items on the block: a 1903 Cy Young autographed baseball bat attributed to the first World Series.
Other notable items available for bid include a historic Babe Ruth autographed 702nd Home Run baseball, a 2009 New York Yankees World Series Ring, and dozens of vintage game used bats, jerseys, photos and baseball cards.
Bidding on the Ruth ball has already surpassed $30,000. It’s marked as home run #701, but was later discovered to be the 702nd of Ruth’s 714 career round-trippers.
Hunt is also offering the collection of former big leaguer Vada Pinson.
