Hunt Auctions employees were busy Wednesday. After traveling from their home base in Eastern Pennsylvania to Kentucky, they spent several hours putting hundreds of items in display cases in time for the opening of the preview for Saturday’s Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory Auction.
It’s one of the hobby’s signature events, now in its 15th year, with bidders welcome to attend or participate at home.
The event takes place Saturday but the public can see items on display inside the museum on Thursday and Friday. This year’s consignments include one private collector’s incredible accumulation of World Series programs and tickets dating back to the early 20th century, memorabilia consigned by former big leaguer Dick Groat and the family of Mel Ott. More historic baseball photographs from the Photo File archives are also in the sale as well as a Joe Jackson signed baseball.
Company president David Hunt gave us a ten-minute tour you can watch below.
