SCP Auctions is proud to announce that its 2017 Spring Premier online auction will feature the J. Ross Greene Collection. Born of a childhood passion for sports and history, the collection represents a lifetime accumulation of cards and memorabilia honoring diamond and gridiron greats from the turn of the century to the modern era. The depth of Greene’s passion is reflected in the vastness of his collection, which boasts more than 100,000 pre-war and post-war baseball and football cards gathered over more than half a century.

On Feb. 2, 1876, Chicago White Stockings president William Hulbert called a meeting with the owners of several National Association teams beset by financial troubles and a lack of meaningful central authority, the N.A. was floundering, and Hulbert wanted to create something better from its ashes. By the end of the day, the National League was born.

Babe Ruth’s life and career on the diamond has resulted in some interesting pieces of memorabilia. And while jerseys, autographs and bats may be the cornerstones that come to mind, there are some things that fall outside that realm and offer a more personal look at the icon. Babe Ruth’s Last Will and Testament from 1933 is one such item. It’s part of SCP Auctions‘ 2017 Spring Premier Auction, which starts May 24.
