Willie Stargell auction includes prime pieces from Pops’ career

It’s been more than 16 years since the baseball world lost “Pops,” aka Hall of Famer Willie Stargell, at age 61.

During a lengthy big-league career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, he was a World Series champ, a National League MVP and even Sports Illustrated‘s Man of the Year — and all those awards and more are up for grabs via SCP Auctions right now.

And there are even some impressive yet unusual items that some baseball fans might not even know about also available in the sale.

One of those items? After his legendary career with the Pirates, Stargell won a World Series ring as a coach with the Atlanta Braves in 1995. That ring, along with his 1996 NL Championship reward, is up for grabs along with a few you’d know a bit better — his 1979 World Series ring, his 1971 and 1979 World Series player trophies and his Hall of Fame lifetime pass and ring.
