SDHOC Montage

SCP Auctions is proud to announce that it will be showcasing hundreds of sports memorabilia items from the San Diego Hall of Champions (SDHOC) in its upcoming 2017 Fall Premier Auction. A total of 217 different lots from the recently closed Hall of Champions museum will open for bidding on Wed., Oct. 18, at www.scpauctions.com. Proceeds from the online auction, which runs through Sat., Nov. 4, will benefit the Hall’s ongoing awards and recognition programs, community outreach initiatives, and the Breitbard Hall of Fame, which was recently relocated to the Western Metal Supply Co. Building in Petco Park.

“The museum simply wasn’t a sustainable model, and closing it allows all other Hall programs to continue,” said SDHOC Executive Director Drew Moser, who cited rising costs and lack of attendance for its closure.gwynn 2919 (2)

One of the nation’s largest multi-sport museums, it boasted three levels’ worth of prized sports memorabilia displayed across 68,000 square feet. The Hall of Champions, which was located in San Diego’s beautiful Balboa Park, stemmed from the concept of the Breitbard Athletic Foundation. It was the brainchild of the late Bob Breitbard, who was a classmate of legendary baseball great Ted Williams at San Diego’s Herbert Hoover High School in the mid-1930s and himself a former football player and coach at San Diego State College (now San Diego State University).

The Breitbard Athletic Foundation was founded in 1946 to recognize significant athletes and their outstanding achievements and contributions to San Diego. In addition to Williams, amazing athletes such as Tony Gwynn, Junior Seau, Bill Walton, LaDainian Tomlinson, Gene Littler, Craig Stadler, Florence Chadwick, Dave Winfield, Greg Louganis, Rollie Fingers, Graig Nettles, and many more are honored inductees to the organization’s prestigious Breitbard Hall of Fame.

One of the largest – and heaviest – items featured in this month’s auction is an exact duplicate of the famed “Rocky” bronze statue that was featured in the 1982 film “Rocky III.” Standing nearly 13 Rock1feet tall and weighing close to 2,000 pounds, the statue’s presentation includes a large, engraved gold plaque that reads: “ROCKY BALBOA Created in 1980 for the Movie ’Rocky III’ by A. Thomas Schomberg Edition #2/3 on Loan to the San Diego Hall of Champions from Robert Breitbard.” The statue is expected to fetch as much as half a million dollars or more.

Among some of the other top lots being offered are dozens of prestigious horse-racing trophies from the massive Eugene V. Klein Collection. Included in the vast assortment is the impressive 1985 Preakness Stakes Championship Trophy, which was won by “Tank’s Prospect,” a three-year-old stallion that was owned by the late Klein, who also was the former owner of the San Diego Chargers from 1966 to ‘84. Speaking of the Chargers, even though the team relocated to Los Angeles earlier this year, the history of the Bolts is captured as several pieces chronicling the team’s existence in San Diego are up for grabs including the team’s MVP award that covers more than three decades of play (1961 to ’92); its “Lineman of the Year” honors from 1971 to ’92; and its “Charger of the Year” trophy (1969 to ’75).

The San Diego Padres, meanwhile, were headlined for 20 seasons by the late Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn (a.k.a. “Mr. Padre”) and many of Gwynn’s milestone mementoes are being auctioned including his autographed and notated 2,915th hit baseball and his game worn and signed uniform from career hit No. 2,919. He finished his career with 3,141 hits, which remains a team record.

Other important historical pieces offered within the SDHOC Collection are turn-of-the-last-century sterling silver football trophies chronicling the city’s longstanding relationship with the armed services; cherished game worn items from Ted Williams’ distinguished baseball career; San Diego Rockets’ memorabilia from the city’s original NBA franchise that now calls Houston home; and several original oil paintings by the late Ernie Barnes, a former Chargers offensive lineman who turned out be an acclaimed artist following his NFL career.

Breitbard, the Hall of Champions’ imaginative creator and visionary who passed away in 2010 at the age of 91, left behind an incredible legacy of celebrating outstanding athletic achievement within his community.

Bidding is open to registered bidders only at www.scpauctions.com beginning on Wed., Oct. 18, and closing on Sat., Nov. 4.

Mel Ott Collection

SCP Auctions is proud to feature various memorabilia pieces from the late Mel Ott in its upcoming 2017 Fall Premier Auction. Eight different lots from the Baseball Hall of Famer’s personal collection will open for bidding on Wed., Oct. 18, at www.scpauctions.com, and each item will be accompanied by a letter from the Ott Family. The online auction runs through Sat., Nov. 4.

ottmanager1The top Ott item to be auctioned will be his 1948 New York Giants game worn uniform from his final season of managing in the major leagues. The uniform, including jersey, pants and stirrups, was on loan to the Baseball Hall of Fame from 2013 to 2016 and comes with documentation of its time on display at Cooperstown. Other lots include his 1938 All-America Board of Baseball sweater; a pair of circa 1940 game-worn cleats; a pair of game worn pants for his managerial days with the Oakland Oaks of the PCL (1951-52); and his 1958 American League season pass in its original brown leather case.

Ott was a longtime right fielder for the New York Giants who played a total of 22 seasons (1926 to ’47). A perennial All-Star, he was selected to the National League squad 12 consecutive times from 1934 to 1945. A six-time N.L. home run champ, he finished his career with 511 round-trippers and was only the third player – and first National League slugger – to crack the magical 500 home run plateau behind fellow legends Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx. A career .304 hitter, Ott tallied 2,876 hits including 488 doubles and 72 triples, and drove in 1,860 runs. During the latter part of his career, Ott became a player/manager for the Giants. He served in that dual capacity from 1942 through the ‘47 season and then simply served as manager in ’48. He was inducted into Cooperstown in 1951 and served as a baseball broadcaster from 1955 to ’58. He died in 1958 following a car accident at the age of 49. Since 1959, the National League has honored its annual home run champion with the Mel Ott Award.

Bidding is open to registered bidders only at SCP Auctions beginning on Wed., Oct. 18, and closing on Sat., Nov. 4.

It’s not unusual for sports celebrities to cross paths with movie stars. But what is unusual is for a movie star to get something as unusual and meaningful as this offering, which will be available in SCP Auctions’ upcoming 2017 Fall Premier auction (Oct. 4 to 21). Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, himself the star of films including “Blue Chips” (1994) and “Kazaam” (1996), started a friendship with movie legend Sylvester Stallone around the new millennium. Stallone, who made his mark on Hollywood through the blockbuster “Rocky” franchise, appreciated the friendship and posed a proposition to his larger-than-life buddy:

“I knew Shaq pretty well and I said, ‘Lets’ do a little trade. I’ll give you something from ‘Rocky’ and you give me something from your world.’ And he said, ‘OK.’ So I get this box that says ‘Sylvester Stallone’ [on it] and this gigantic ring comes out. This is his championship ring; it’s extraordinary! I’ve looked at it for many, many years and I thought, ‘Wouldn’t this be extraordinary for someone else to have who’s a real, real basketball fan?’ Thank you, Shaq!”

ss1Visually stunning, the prized ring from the Shaquille O’Neal/Kobe Bryant dynasty of the Los Angeles Lakers was presented by the 7’ 1” former center to Stallone to commemorate the franchise’s 14th NBA Championship (2002). It mirrors the design of the original one worn by O’Neal himself. The triangle theme on the ring face makes note of the team’s back-to-back-to-back trip to basketball’s mountain top, with the magnificent amethyst stone in the center bordered by the word “Back” on three sides. A total of 14 brilliant cut diamonds adorn the bezel, where raised lettering reads “Lakers World Champions.” Sixty-one yellow diamonds are set in the ring face, as are three larger triangular cut diamonds that represent each of the three league championships. “O’Neal” stands in raised lettering upon the left shank, and below that the design makes note of the team’s regular season record (58-24) as well as its playoffs mark (15-4). Right shank features the team’s logo, the year “2002,” and a tribute to the team’s mainstay broadcaster Chick Hearn (“Slam Dunk”) whose last game at the mike was the Lakers’ 2002 NBA Championship clinching 113-107 Game 4 victory over the New Jersey Nets on June 12. The ring’s interior band is engraved “SLY STALLONE” and stamped “14K.” It measures to size 13 (Shaq wears a size 17). The ring is housed inside a beautiful, hinged cherry wood presentation case with an engraved gold plaque on the lid attributing it to Stallone: “2002 WORLD CHAMPIONS LOS ANGELES LAKERS – Sylvester Stallone.” The ring, which comes from Stallone’s personal collection, reflects moderate use.

Still no word on what Stallone presented to Shaq in return.        Terry Melia

The online bidding in SCP Auctions’ 2017 Spring Premier auction ended early Sunday morning and a new auction world record was set. Lot #464 – Michael Jordan’s game worn and dual signed Converse shoes from the 1984 Olympics’ gold-medal-winning-game against Spain – closed at $190,373 to shatter the previous auction record of $104,765 for game-worn shoes. The prior mark was set in 2013 for a pair of Nike Air Jordan XII shoes Jordan wore in Game 5 of the ‘97 NBA Finals.

84 jordan1“Once again Michael Jordan has set a new standard in the basketball shoe market,” said Dan Imler, SCP Auctions’ vice president. “The record-shattering price achieved for his 1984 Olympic worn shoes proves that Michael Jordan has no equal in the marketplace for game-used basketball memorabilia.”

In addition to Jordan’s Olympic gamers, the online auction saw the headline-grabbing sale of a 1909-11 Honus Wagner T206 baseball card for $609,294. The sought-after card is being referred to as “The Original Wagner” based on the fact that it was the first of its kind to be featured in mainstream media (Newark Evening News) in 1930.wagner1

Overall, the auction of 723 different lots brought in $3.75 million including the sale of 20 coveted baseball items from the personal memorabilia collection of late Pittsburgh Pirates’ slugger Willie Stargell. The pieces were all consigned by Stargell’s widow, Margaret Weller-Stargell, and were led by the Hall of Famer’s 1979 National League MVP Award ($103,567) and his ‘79 World Series ring as a member of the Pirates ($82,853). Other top auction lots included a circa 1955 Heisman Trophy ($100,252); a 1933 Goudey Sport Kings framed uncut sheet of 24 cards ($82,853); and a 1979 Terry Bradshaw Pittsburgh Steelers game-worn helmet gifted to Willie Stargell ($65,007).

The historic Jordan sneakers are the last pair he ever wore in amateur competition and represent perhaps his crowning achievement before turning pro. A baby-faced, 21-year-old Jordan led Team USA in scoring during the ’84 Games (17.1 points per game) and scored a game-high 20 points in the United States’ 96-65 victory over Spain to win the gold while sporting these classic Converse shoes. It marked the last time MJ was ever seen wearing a non-Nike pair.

The buyers of the items wish to remain anonymous at this time. All prices include a buyer’s premium.  Full auction results are available at www.scpauctions.com.                                                                     -Terry Melia

4 of 13 - SGC Graded

George Mikan was the NBA’s first big man. Standing 6’ 10” tall, the late Basketball Hall of Famer helped redefine the center position during his glory years playing for the Minneapolis Lakers. Mikan broke the mold, so to speak, and along with his emergence as the NBA’s top draw during the league’s early days, regional distributions of the man’s likeness were being distributed for the team’s growing legion of fans. One such offering came in the early ‘50s by way of Scott’s Potato Chips of Minneapolis.

4 of 13 Card Backs - SGC GradedSince May 24th, an incredibly rare complete set of all 13 cards from the seldom seen 1950-51 Scott’s Potato Chip regional issue featuring players from the defending NBA World Champion Minneapolis Lakers has been up for bid at SCP Auctions. The card fronts feature a black-and-white drawing of each player set against a light blue background with a facsimile autograph below. A prominent Scott’s logo is also placed on the front of each card. The card backs boast detailed biographies along with an ad for obtaining game tickets and possibly even a signed team photo of the Lakers. It was an early example of a basketball redemption card operation but not a program true card collectors would ever embrace. Nevertheless many youngsters at that time turned their cards in for some of these prizes thus making the population of cards that may have survived even smaller. All cards within the offered set have been graded by SGC including the only card of Bobby Doll that’s ever been analyzed by the company. It’s the highest graded set on the SGC Registry.

“This set is the definition of rare,” said SCP Auctions President David Kohler. “These cards were only distributed in Minneapolis some 70 years ago and only through potato chip bags, so you can imagine there’s just not that many around.”

Mikan 1In the case of the sought-after Mikan #9 card, the front shows a drawing of Mikan in the same pose that was used for his coveted 1948 Bowman card where he is running and leaning a bit to the right as he dribbles a basketball. The back of the card includes this informational nugget about Mikan: “The key to his success is sleep. He gets 12 hours a night.”

The set is currently nearing $8,000 with less than a week to go in the bidding. A single of just the Mikan card, graded EX 5.5 by PSA, is also being offered as a separate lot and is currently at $3,897. Online bidding closes on June 10 at www.scpauctions.com.   –Terry Melia

The 1984 U.S. Men’s Basketball team was USA’s last amateur squad to win an Olympic gold medal, and in many circles is considered the best amateur basketball team ever. Led by future Hall of Famers Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin, and coached by the unpredictable Bobby Knight, this talented squad of 12 young men put on quite a show at the L.A. Summer Games en route to a perfect 8-0 record with an average margin of victory of more than 30 points per game. It was a level of domination not seen until eight years later in Barcelona when the 1992 “Dream Team” — with Jordan, Ewing and Mullin in the prime of their NBA careers — officially “professionalized” basketball at the Olympics.

84 jordan1SCP Auctions is proud to feature one of the most coveted artifacts from Jordan’s legendary playing career in its current Spring Premier auction: the actual shoes he wore in the ’84 Olympic Finals against Spain on August 10, 1984, at The Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, Calif. These historic sneakers are the last pair Jordan ever wore in competition as an amateur and represent perhaps his crowning athletic achievement before turning pro. A then-21-year-old Jordan led Team USA in scoring at 17.1 points per game during the ’84 Games. In the United States’ 96-65 victory over Spain to claim gold, Jordan scored a game-high 20 points while sporting these classic Converse sneakers. It would be the last time Jordan was ever seen wearing a non-Nike pair.

The white-and-navy blue trimmed shoes (size 13) are a canvas and leather mid-top design. The navy blue Converse star logo appears on both sides and again on the upper heels.  The original white laces are present and they even include MJ’s very own navy blue orthotic inserts. The shoes are well-preserved with all structural and aesthetic components perfectly intact. Game use is evident throughout, with proper heel drag, leather creasing and light scuffing. Jordan has signed both sneakers — the right shoe on the inner ankle, the left shoe on the outer ankle — with a black marker in his early, pre-NBA autograph form.

The sought-after shoes currently have a high bid of $37,978. Initial bidding closes on Saturday, June 10, at 5 p.m. PDT.                                                                                                                   -Terry Melia

Ross Greene Collection as well as 20 cherished items from the widow of Willie Stargell including the late Hall of Famer’s 1979 National League MVP Award and ’79 World Series ring as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The sale of the 1876 Founding Documents and Original Constitution of Major League Baseball has been delayed due to clarification of title. SCP Auctions apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused and looks forward to resuming the auction of this item as soon as possible. Other top lots include Babe Ruth’s signed Last Will & Testament from Dec. 26, 1933; Michael Jordan’s 1984 Olympic gold-medal-winning game worn and signed Converse Shoes; and a 1968 Nolan Ryan Topps rookie card that’s been graded PSA Mint 9.

Ross Greene Collection of more than 100,000 pre-war and post-war baseball and football cards gathered over more than half a century. In addition to complete runs of Topps and Bowman baseball and football sets, the collection includes hundreds of Hall of Fame stars and key rookie cards to be offered as singles and group lots. Since 1996, Greene has been the proud keeper of “The Original Wagner” T206 card, a singularly important example of the world’s most famous baseball card that got its name because it was the first 1909-11 Honus Wagner card that was referenced and pictured in mainstream media (1930). “The Original Wagner” Estimate: $500,000+.

THE WILLIE STARGELL COLLECTION
Among the items being auctioned as part of the late Hall of Famer’s personal memorabilia collection are Stargell’s 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Champions ring and ‘79 National League MVP Award; his 1988 Hall of Fame Induction ring; two personal player World Series trophies from 1971 and ’79; and his 1962-82 Rawlings Career Bronzed Glove Award.

Estimate: $500,000+

BABE RUTH’S SIGNED LAST WILL & TESTAMENT (DEC. 26, 1933)
When the great Babe Ruth passed away on August 16, 1948 at the age of 53, a national treasure was lost. It is well-documented that the vast majority of Babe’s personal memorabilia was gifted, at Ruth’s consent, to the National Baseball Hall of Fame shortly after his passing. The offered Last Will and Testament is among only a few Ruth mementos ever offered to the public with direct Ruth family provenance. It is accompanied by a LOA from Babe Ruth’s grandson Tom Stevens. Estimate: $125,000

Artsy Shot of 1876 MLB

In the wake of its record-breaking $3.26 million sale last April of the 1857 “Laws of Base Ball” documents, SCP Auctions now unveils the recently discovered and never-before-offered 1876 “Founding Documents and Original Constitution of Major League Baseball,” a hand-written, 74-page sports artifact of unprecedented historical significance.

“This, the founding document of Major League Baseball, is a central piece of Americana, inaugurating an institution that would come to be a defining aspect of American culture,” says Dan Imler, vice president of SCP Auctions.

Const1Baseball first became an occupational endeavor in 1869, when the Cincinnati Red Stockings became the first team to pay its players a salary. The dawn of professional baseball, however, was plagued by a lack of governance that seeded corruption and instability. Teams folded regularly due to the unregulated and often crooked practices of players and owners alike. By the end of the 1875 season, the future of professional baseball was in peril. In 1876, its saviors emerged and Major League Baseball was born.

In a meeting held on Feb. 2, 1876, at the Grand Central Hotel in New York City, Chicago White Stockings owner William Hulbert persuaded a carefully assembled group of baseball luminaries to join his effort to bring order, dignity and profitability to the fledgling sport. Supported by fellow visionaries such as Albert Spalding, Harry Wright, Nicholas Young, Morgan Bulkeley and others Hulbert set forth his blueprint for the destiny of professional baseball.

Offered here are those very pages, the central handwritten documents crafted by Hulbert and his supporters in 1875-76 that established what endures today as America’s oldest professional sports league. The groundbreaking documents go up for auction on May 24th at www.scpauctions.com. The new association was called “The National League of Professional Base Ball Clubs” and consisted of just eight teams: the Boston Red Stockings, Chicago White Stockings, Cincinnati Reds, Hartford Dark Blues, Louisville Grays, New York Mutuals, Philadelphia Athletics and the St. Louis Brown Stockings. The first page of the original handwritten Constitution states the new league’s objectives as follows:

• to encourage, foster and elevate the game of base-ball;
• to enact and enforce proper rules for the exhibition and conduct of the game;
• to make base-ball playing respectable and honorable;
• to protect and promote the mutual interests of professional base-ball clubs and professional baseball players; and
• to establish and regulate the “Base-Ball Championship of the United States.”

“Nearly 150 years ago William Hulbert saw the future of what baseball could be,” says Imler. “He set a new standard for the game and created a professional baseball league that has not only lasted, but has blossomed into a global institution. The forum he created fostered legends from Cap Anson to Babe Ruth to Mike Trout and all the superstars of today. These men owe their identities to Major League Baseball and Major League Baseball owes its existence to Hulbert and this foundational set of documents.“

The documents have never been offered publicly. The sports world has known very few transcendent foundational documents that have surfaced in original form for public offering. In addition to the aforementioned 1857 “Laws of Base Ball” sold by SCP Auctions ($3.26 million), there are James Naismith’s “1891 Original Rules of Basketball” (sold for $4.3 million) and “The 1859 Original Rules of Soccer” (sold for $1.4 million).

Adds Imler: “We’ve sold some incredible baseball artifacts before – from Babe Ruth’s 1920 Yankees jersey for $4.4 million to Kirk Gibson’s 1988 World Series home run bat for $575,000 – but this artifact trumps them all. Without these documents, such objects would not exist.”

Bidding is open to registered bidders only at www.scpauctions.com beginning on Wed., May 24, and closing on Sat., June 10. For more information on how to participate and take part in the bidding, please call 949-831-3700 or visit www.scpauctions.com.                                                                           – Terry Melia

SCP Auctions is proud to feature the Willie Stargell Collection in its upcoming 2017 Spring Premier Auction. More than a dozen lots from the late Hall of Famer’s personal collection will open for bidding on Wed., May 24, at www.scpauctions.com, and each item is accompanied by a letter from the Stargell Family. The online auction runs through Sat., June 10.

1971ws1“It is our distinct honor to auction off Willie’s coveted items,” says SCP Auctions President David Kohler. “He was such a beloved player in Pittsburgh and around the league that we are very excited to see how fans and collectors alike respond to these important baseball treasures have never before been offered publicly.”

Among the items to be auctioned are Stargell’s 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Champions ring and ‘79 National League MVP Award; his 1988 Hall of Fame Induction ring; two personal player World Series trophies from 1971 and ’79; and his 1962-82 Rawlings Career Gold Glove Award.

The late Hall of Fame first baseman, who stood 6’ 2” tall, was affectionately called “Pops” by teammates and fans alike, and led by example with both his booming bat and steady glove. He launched a total of 475 home runs and drove in 1,540 runs during his prolific 21-year MLB career, all with the Pittsburgh Pirates, a testament to his impressive power and fierce loyalty. When it came to encouraging the troops, the 1979 National League MVP was the Pirates’ consummate field general. A vital member of the franchise’s last two World Series Championships (1971 and ’79), Stargell’s feats remain legendary in the Steel City and in baseball circles everywhere. Stargell passed away on April 9, 2001, in Wilmington, N.C., at the age of 61.
