As a former player, Harry Craft roamed centerfield for six years with the Cincinnati Reds. He was part of their pennant-winning teams of 1939 and 1940. His best year with the bat, however, was in 1938, when he hit 15 home runs and had 83 RBI's, both the top ten in the league. He went on to play for the Kansas City Blues from 1942 to 1948, missing the 1944-1945 seasons due to military service. After his playing career ended, he became a manager in the New York Yankees minor league system, managing Mickey Mantle in his first years of pro ball. Craft went on to manage several teams in the big leagues including becoming the first manager of the expansion Houston Colt .45s in 1962. He remained in baseball for three more decades, eventually becoming a scout for the Yankees before retiring in 1991. Craft earned this 1977 World Series ring for contributing to the Yankees first World Championship since 1962.

See a Picture of this Item 325 Fine 1982 Cal Ripken Jr. Baltimore Orioles road jersey. Grey knit jersey retains its original "Orioles" team name across the front with #8 beneath. The back of the jersey has "Ripken" nameplate above #8. Rawlings tagging remains affixed inside the tail front along with Set 1 1982 flag tag. The jersey exhibits evident moderate use and wash wear with appropriate sizing in comparison to other Ripken shirts from the period. Underneath the nameplate on the back are vestiges of a larger nameplate which was removed/altered by the team before the current nameplate was applied, also by the team. The current nameplate on the jersey is consistent in every respect with other 1982 Orioles jerseys from that season, inclusive of the interior stitching pattern, which was compared with several common player 1982 road shirts. The offered jersey originated directly from a team source in the period along with several other 1982 Orioles road jerseys (all of which remain in a single private collection) and is being offered to the collecting public at auction for the first time. The 1982 season was Cal Ripken Jr.'s first full season in the Major Leagues and he certainly lived up to the billing, capturing the Rookie of the Year award for the American League. Additionally, on May 30th of the 1982 season, Ripken unknowingly embarked on the streak that would define his career, playing in a record 2,632 consecutive games - a streak which ended on the final game of the 1998 season. The offered jersey is one of the finest Cal Ripken game worn shirts to have been offered at auction with impeccable original provenance. Includes LOA from MEARS Authentication (Graded A9) and LOA from Hunt Auctions: EX ($15,000-$20,000) $13,500.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 326 1984 Eddie Murray Baltimore Orioles road jersey. Grey knit shirt retains its original team name on front along with orange #33. The back of the shirt features "Murray" nameplate above the original #33 (also in orange). Rawlings tag remains affixed to the tail front along with "Set 1 1984" flag tag. Desirable Orioles 30th anniversary patch remains in place on the left sleeve. The jersey exhibits light to moderate and wash wear while remaining in outstanding original condition. It is our belief that this particular jersey was worn by Murray during the Orioles 1984 Tour of Japan. While the Orioles jerseys from 1984 typically are found with Sand Knit tagging, the Rawlings tag on this Murray shirt is absolutely original and unaltered along with the sizing of the jersey. Rawlings was the sponsor of the Orioles Tour of Japan that season, which likely accounts for the tagging on the shirt. In the interest of accuracy, some are of the opinion that these Rawlings jerseys were made as salesman's samples for the 1984 Tour by Rawlings. Murray was one of the most popular players in Orioles history and a member of the 500 Home Run club. Includes LOA's from MEARS Authentication (Graded A5) and Hunt Auctions: EX ($3,000-$4,000) $1,400.00

See a Picture of this Item 335 1982 St. Louis Cardinals full-size World Championship trophy. Desirable full scale replica version of the championship trophy was produced by Balfour in commemoration of the Cardinals 1982 World Championship. Standing a full 25" tall, these full-sized replica trophies were produced in far fewer quantities than the miniature replica versions more often seen in the marketplace. The trophy features brass pennants with team names around the perimeter of a large brass circle with a crown finial. Cardinals and Brewers enameled World Series press pin facades adorn the center area with "World Champions St. Louis Cardinals 1982" in black lettering on the front of a brass band around the base. The back of the band reads "Copyright 1983 Commissioner of Baseball". To get to the "Fall Classic," the Cardinals defeated the Atlanta Braves, three games to none, in the NLCS and the Brewers defeated the California Angels, three games to two, in the ALCS. Though the teams had never met, the cities had an existing commercial rivalry in the beer market, as St. Louis is the home of Anheuser Busch while Milwaukee is the home of Miller Brewing. This led to a few minor references to the Series being nicknamed the "Suds Series." The Cardinals prevailed in seven games with catcher Darrell Porter given the Series MVP award. Paul Molitor set a World Series record with his fifth hit, in the 9th inning of Game 1, and Robin Yount would set another record in the 7th inning of Game 5 by becoming the first player in Series history to have two four-hit games: NM ($7,500-$10,000) $12,500.00

See a Picture of this Item 358 ***UPDATED DESCRIPTION*** Cardinals minor league jersey attributed to Yochim brothers Ray and Lenny c.1940s. Home flannel jersey retains its original heavily embroidered Cardinals logo on the front with matching red piping. Original #18 remains affixed to the back. Wilson manufacturer's tag remains in the collar with adjacent size "42" flag tag. The jersey shows light wear with some light scattered staining. Ray Yochim appeared in only four games as a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals over the course of the 1948-49 seasons. The jersey comes with a letter of provenance signed by Ray Yochim's brother Lenny Yochim, who himself appeared briefly in the Major Leagues. The letter erroneously states that the jersey was worn by Ray Yochim as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals. It has been determined that the jersey is a minor league jersey based on the manufacturer (Wilson), style (Cardinals' pro shirts from this era were zip-front), and lack of chain-stitching on the front tail. Both Ray and Lenny Yochim played for minor league teams nicknamed the Cardinals, and therefore the jersey could be attributed to either player. Includes LOAs from Hunt Auctions and Lenny Yochim: EX-MT ($1,000-$1,500) $725.00

See a Picture of this Item 360a St. Louis Cardinals “World Champions” warm up jacket c.1932-35. Incredible original red wool jacket having original embroidered Cardinals redbird logo on the front with “World Champions” lettering. Interior retains its original Spalding tagging (label dating c.1926-35) with “40” chain stitched size tag and red felt “1” at the bottom of the interior tail. The numeral "1" represents the uniform number from either Sparky Adams, Skeeter Webb, or Pepper Martin during the timing period. Attribution to the 1932 or 1935 dating period is due to the use of uniform numbers and the Spalding label dating style. The jacket remains very clean overall with some minor wear to the collar area. Extremely rare and desirable championship jacket with relation to a legendary Cardinals team. The jacket originated from the personal collection of Dr. Robert F. Hyland. The following article from Time magazine recounts Dr. Hyland's career: "When the baseball season ends, Doc Hyland's busiest season begins. For nine weeks, ailing ballplayers have come to his St. Louis office to see the man known as "baseball's surgeon-general." Dr. Robert Hyland has a physician's professional reticence about discussing patients; besides, baseball's big winter meetings are coming up. "Some of the men are liable to be up for trading," said Doc. Back in 1938, he had examined Dizzy Dean's great pitching arm, found Dizzy a victim of bursitis, and predicted that his pitching days were numbered. Shortly afterwards, the St. Louis Cardinals sold Dizzy to the Chicago Cubs for $185,000, even though the Cubs knew of Dr. Hyland's findings. Last week three of the doctor's patients were easily identifiable as Cardinals. It was no secret either that the 1949 pennant hopes of the New York Giants would rise or fall on how skillfully Doc Hyland carved a bone growth from Catcher Walker Cooper's kneecap this week. Since Babe Ruth tore his finger on some chicken wire 17 years ago, at least 5,000 big leaguers have visited baseball's two surgical meccas—St. Louis and Baltimore. Doc Hyland, a good-natured, husky 60, gets all the St. Louis trade, and a lot of Eastern clients besides. In Baltimore, the man to see is testy, trim Dr. George Bennett, a famed orthopedic surgeon and a rabid baseball fan, like Hyland. Dr. Bennett's most recent patient: Joe DiMaggio, who walked out of Johns Hopkins hospital on crutches last week after having a spur cut from his right heel. Forkballs & Sliders. Dr. Hyland, a frustrated ballplayer himself, resents any suggestion that the present-day frequency of "elbow chips" and bone growths means that players are less durable than of old. Says Doc, who often talks the way sport-writers write: "Today's crop is obviously better educated and, if anything, up to a faster type of baseball. The culprit in the injury woodpile is the development of trick pitching." Most of his baseball patients are pitchers. To keep pace with improved batting techniques, pitchers throw an assortment of forkballs, knuckle balls, screwballs and sliders. "Try it yourself and feel the strain on your elbow," says Dr. Hyland. His commonest operation—removing calcium deposits from elbows—made new men of Pitchers Howie Pollet and Red Munger. The list of patients who have consulted him would make an impressive line-up for an All-Star game. Among them: Ty Cobb (one of his steadiest customers), Frank Frisch, Rogers Hornsby, Joe Cronin, Mel Ott, Bobby Doerr. Big, home-run-hitting John Mize might never have been a big leaguer but for Doc Hyland. The Cincinnati Reds passed him up 13 years ago when another doctor discovered an old pelvic injury (the result of riding mules bareback in his Georgia childhood). Doc Hyland operated and Big John did the rest. The Prejudices & Pars. Doctoring ballplayers is more of a hobby than a business with Doc Hyland. He is chief surgeon (with twelve to 14 assistants) for 4,200 employees of the St. Louis transit system and their families. His parents, hostile towards baseball, wouldn't let him play, so he turned to medicine. But for a while, under an assumed name, he played first base with a Grand Rapids team, hit a home run in his first game. He was a crack golfer (low yos) until hit by a taxi 21 years ago. The taxi driver lost his job; it is characteristic of Doc Hyland that he got the cabbie another job. Busy as he is, Doc seldom misses a day-game when the Cardinals or Browns are playing in St. Louis. He was in Boston the day Enos Slaughter got hit by a pitched ball in the 1946 World Series and the arm swelled up to balloon-size. Doc treated it. Two games later, Slaughter made his famous scoring dash from first to home with the Series-winning run. When reporters congratulated him, Slaughter replied: "Me, hell. If it wasn't for [Doc], I never would've been on first." Includes letter of provenance and LOA from Hunt Auctions: EX ($3,000.00-$4,000.00) $8,500.00

See a Picture of this Item 393 1952 Joe Collins New York Yankees home jersey. Pinstriped white home jersey displays an "NY" logo on the front with #15 on the reverse. The 15 is a period number change executed when the shirt was sent to the Minor Leagues. For display purposes, the number is appropriate given the fact that Collins wore #15 from 1953-57 with the Yankees. The "NY" emblem on the front is a period application by the team which appears to have been added over top of an earlier NY style patch. The earlier patch was slightly larger, but the current NY does appear to be original to this particular shirt in 1952. "Collins" is chain stitched onto a strip tag inside the collar, and Wilson mfg. tag is affixed to the tail front along with '44" size flag tag and dry clean tag (faded). "1952" is chain stitched onto the tail front as well.

See a Picture of this Item 397 Whitey Ford game worn glove with possible World Series attribution c.1961-62. Spalding LHT Whitey Ford model #1106 glove exhibiting evident game usage has interior pocket wear and general indications of use to both exterior and interior surfaces. A small puncture hole on the interior goes through to the back of the glove for unknown reasons. The lacings between two fingers at the top are missing, which appears to be intentional as the lacings are tied into a knot on the adjacent finger. The bottom right edge of the backstrap has some wear to the edges. "33 2/3 IN-1962 W.S." is written in period ink on the back of the glove which has also been signed by Ford in black marker. This inscription was written in reference to the incredible record established by Ford of 33 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings pitched in World Series play. The previous record was held by Babe Ruth at 29 2/3 innings, and Ford's record stood until the 2000 season when Mariano Rivera finally eclipsed the mark. While Ford broke Babe Ruth's record in the 1961 World Series, the eventual record setting total was not established until the 1962 World Series. In the second inning of Game #1, Whitey finally surrendered a run to end the streak and establish one of baseball's truly remarkable records. While it does not appear that Ford used this particular glove during the record setting game in the 1962 World Series, it is highly likely, given the dating period of the glove and the evident usage, that the offered glove saw action in World Series play. One of the more significant game used player gloves with unimpeachable provenance originating directly from the personal collection of Whitey Ford. Includes LOA from JSA (autograph) and letter of provenance signed by Whitey Ford: VG-EX ($10,000-$15,000) $0.00

The offered jersey retains "NY" patch on the front, which is believed to be original to the shirt with reinforced/replaced interior stitching. #14 on the back is restored from a #8, which was added after the shirt was sent down to the Minor Leagues. Spalding tagging remains inside the collar with dry clean and size 44 tags also present. "Coleman 48" is chain stitched in blue on the tail front, and "Stahl" is written in black marker, indicating the Minor League player who received the jersey at a later date.
