Complete run of press pins, ticket stubs to be offered at auction.
It’s the ultimate collection for the ultimate Yankee fan.
Memory Lane Inc. has been chosen to sell a unique and valuable accumulation of World Series ticket stubs and press pins in its Summer 2009 auction.
Yankee fans, World Series ticket stub collectors or those who favor press pins will be able to fill any hole in their collection when MLI brings each and every World Series stub and press pin ever issued to the marketplace this month.
Minimum bid on the collection representing 39 World Series matchups, is $15,000.
The Yankees have not only appeared in more World Series than any team in baseball history, the club’s winning percentage tops all. The franchise owns 26 wins in those 39 appearances for a .667 pace.
From the Yankees’ first World Series appearance in 1921 through the club’s last visit to the Fall Classic under Joe Torre in 2003, each is represented with the stubs and pins, painstakingly collected and preserved.
Included in the collection is a 1926 World Series game four stub from the Yankees’ victory over the Cardinals, a contest that saw Babe Ruth belted three home runs. The fabled 1927 Yankee team is represented, as well as the 1932 “called shot” Series and the dominating 1956 Mantle-Ford-Berra triumph.
The stub and pin collection will be one of the featured items when bidding gets underway in Memory Lane’s Summer Vintage Rarities Auction. The auction goes llive at 9 PM Eastern time Saturday.
