As you may have noticed in the left-hand ad rail, our friends at Grey Flannel Auctions are running another catalog sale. It includes the absolutely magnificent 1950s Syracuse Nationals jacket shown above. Everything about this jacket is awesome, from the chest logo and collar piping to the sleeve patch and interior tagging. Pretty good, right? You can see more photos and info here.

Interestingly, this catalog auction also includes a really nice jacket from the team that the Nationals eventually became, the 76ers. You can learn more about that item here.

• Lots to like on this 1968 game-used Billy Williams Cubs jersey, including the rarely seen Illinois sesquicentennial patch.

• Oh man, how awesome is this 1928 photo album prepared for Cubs manager Joe McCarthy. A very unusual item!

• Speaking of unusual, check out this 1917 Red Sox season ticket booklet.

• Love this 1970s Cal Angels jacket, which was made for owner Gene Autry. The big logo on the back is particularly nice.

• I never get tired of seeing these old Phillies jerseys with the giant chain-stitched numbers on the back. Here’s another one — great stuff!

• Love this Brett Hull 1992 NHL All-Star Game jersey. So much better than the ones that the league recently unveiled.

• I’ve never seen an NFL sweater quite like this 1951 Doak Walker item. Note the city of Detroit 250th-anniversary patch, too!

• I like how the Gold Glove award is player- and position-specific. So if a Gold Glove winner is left-handed, the glove on his award trophy will be left-handed. And if you’re a first baseman, like 1967 Gold Glover George Scott, your trophy will feature a first baseman’s mitt.

Incredible 1902 Baltimore Orioles Game-Used Road Flannel Jersey (Player Family LOA • Earliest Known Example • Graded 9+) 

 The Orioles’ second season in Baltimore would ultimately prove to be their last, as the team was moved to New York after the season, where they became known as the New York Highlanders. The Yankees franchise began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles. In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders who were officially renamed the Yankees in 1913.

Ali – Mary Jo Kopechne / Kennedy Letter

Inquire today about a free non-binding auction estimate + advanced catalog placement

Muhammad Ali Handwritten & Dual-Signed Letter With Controversial Chappaquiddick Incident & Kennedy Content

In 1969, Senator Ted Kennedy careened a car off a bridge, killing passenger Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy was impacted both personally and politically as the story of the night’s events remain unclear today. The story gathered national headlines and the controversial matter captivated some of the country’s biggest stars. Following the tragic event, the iconic Muhammad Ali personally reached out to the Kopechne family to offer not only his condolences, but also his personal thoughts regarding the story. Offered is Ali’s handwritten letter to the Kopechne family that details his distaste with the Kennedy’s and the totality of the events that occurred. Ali signed the bottom of the letter as both Muhammad Ali and Cassius Clay. An incredibly rare insight into the thoughts of one of the greatest athletes regarding a controversial event.
