Hall of Famer Mel Ott was the Giants’ career home run leader and owned the National League homers record, at least until Willie Mays came along. Ott’s number 4 is retired, but his uniform still is around. At least a uniform he wore in 1948, the last year he managed the New York Giants. His jersey, pants and stirrups are being auctioned off as a set.
Various memorabilia pieces from the late Mel Ott are available in the upcoming SCP Auctions’ 2017 Fall Premier Auction. Eight different lots from the Baseball Hall of Famer’s personal collection will be available, with each item accompanied by a letter from the Ott Family. The online auction runs through Sat., Nov. 4.
