Michael Jordan‘s final jersey worn for a regular-season home game as a member of the Chicago Bulls netted a new record for a piece of Jordan memorabilia with a sale price of $173,240 this weekend after 17 bids in Goldin Auctions‘ latest sale.
It wasn’t the only six-figure sale of the weekend, either.
A circa 1952 Louisville Slugger used by Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson was a top-dollar item in Hunt Auctions‘ annual Louisville Slugger Museum sale. The 35-inch. 35-once bat went for $140,000. A Lou Gehrig bat from around 1930-31 went for $120,000. They were the only six-figure sales, while a 1973 Joe Frazier fight-worn robe commanded $30,000 — the same amount paid for a signed Babe Ruth bat. Search the top results here.
In upcoming auction news, SCP Auctions’ sale opening on Wednesday will include a holy grail card for basketball collectors — a PSA 10 1948 Bowman George Mikan Rookie Card, which is the only perfect copy in existence. The card previously sold at auction for $218,550 back in 2009. This auction will open at $50,000 and run until Dec. 5 along with the sales of full uniforms for Ernie Banks and Joe DiMaggio and the memorabilia collection of NBA great Jo Jo White.
