AMI's 1977 Reggie Jackson jersey steals the show

Editor Input Needed

Baseball pieces dominated American Memorabilia's March 29 Spring Fever Auction, a sale which took in more than $500,000. Its Roy Campanella flannel and Babe Ruth game-used bat reached typical strong numbers, $46,808 and $46,302 respectively, but it was AMI's 1977 Reggie Jackson Yankees shirt that turned the most heads.

Already considered one of the leaders in game-used football, basketball and entertainment memorabilia, AMI's acquisitions representative Tony Giese said that its March auction was proof that its baseball material shouldn't be overlooked.

"In recent years we have gotten substantial money on football material. The Reggie Jackson jersey, which fetched over $20,000, clearly demonstrates that we are a strong contender for baseball jerseys and equipment as well," said Giese.
