Coming off a solid Super Bowl auction in February of this year, American Memorabilia was able to keep the ball rolling with a March sale that will be headlining a solid vintage selection such as a 1923 high-grade Babe Ruth game-used bat, Roy Campanella game-worn Dodgers jersey from the team's final year in Brooklyn, 1977 Reggie Jackson game-worn Yankees jersey and a collection of significant game-used footballs from the 1950s and 60s.
According to Tony Giese, AMI's acquisitions representative, the high-end vintage pieces it was able to obtain were a direct result of consignors who took notice of the strong prices in its February auction.
"We're getting some very nice vintage pieces in now," said Giese. "People are putting more and more trust in us when they see the realized prices we have been getting. When you start getting high-end Babe Ruth game-used bats, it's really saying something.
"Because of the success from our Miami Dolphins football ($42,189) that we sold in our last auction, we were fortunate enough to obtain three footballs from the Sid Gillman Estate."
Giese also acknowledged that AMI will be offering select pieces from former NFL player, Tim Harris' personal collection, including his 49ers jersey worn in Super Bowl XXIX.
According to Giese, bidders will also have a rare chance to purchase a match-worn Tiger Woods polo shirt certified by Upper Deck Authenticated.
The 600-lot auction will get under way March 9 and end March 29. Bidding can be made by phone at 1-800-430-0667 or AMI's website,
