Overview

"This is a collection of holy icons and sacred documents, amassed by one of the game's high priests. This is no mere 'baseball memorabilia.' It is baseball's heritage." -Peter Golenbock Last September, Sotheby's held an auction of the greatest private collection of baseball memorabilia ever assembled-the Barry Halper Collection. With most of the nearly 2,500 items selling above the high estimate-including the 1920 signed agreement selling Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees ($189,500), the only signed Ty Cobb jersey ($332,500), and Mickey Mantle's glove (purchased by Billy Crystal for $239,000)-the sale earned a record-breaking $21.8 million. This spring, in time for baseball season, Abrams is proud to offer Sotheby's elegant, slipcased three-volume catalogue of the Barry Halper Collection at a special low price.

    This is more than a collection of baseball...

    This set of auction catalogues offer you more than just a large selection of baseball cards, bats etcetera. Because of of the depth and quality of the collection and especially the historical documents such as players contracts, letters, advertising and a Joe DiMaggio signed Playboy magazine, the catalogue provide you with a nostalgic feeling and takes on a journey though the great moments of Baseball.
