You guys know us by now here at TGP. We're humble and we are the first ones to lend a helping hand when someone needs it or asks for it. I was checking my email yesterday when the group over at reached out to us and asked if we would be willing to inform our readers about an MLB memorabilia auction that goes live on November 14th and of course we were willing to help. This isn't the first time we've worked with the crew over at invaluable and we received some nice feedback from the first post so I am bringing you a second post this afternoon here on the blog. is an online marketplace that brings your rare baseball memorabilia live from the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum. The auction will be live on November 14th at 11:00 am ET. There will be something for everyone from baseball bats from Yankees legends like Yogi Berra to 19th century baseball artifacts. The range of pricing for these bats and memorabilia range anywhere from $100-$250,000.

We receive nothing if you check out the auction and we still receive nothing if you buy. We truly wanted to just bring this to your attention because we thought you may be interested, it's not like we have baseball to watch or prepare for anytime soon, right?

Here are a few examples of what is up for auction on November 14th from

Lot 289: Fine Lou Gehrig professional model baseball bat c. 1930-31 (PSA/DNA graded "GU 8")

Estimated Price: $75,000 - $100,000

The bat originates from a primary source descendant of a former Washington area bat boy whom is believed to have spent time with several teams inclusive of the Washington Senators. According to family history, the young bat boy had the occasion to meet several notable individuals during this period and one particularly special encounter was with Lou Gehrig. The 1930-31 time period was particularly productive for Gehrig who turned in numbers that would have been career years for nearly any other player conceivable. A fresh to market Gehrig game bat is always noteworthy and an example with strong provenance and usage characteristics is an exceedingly rare find.

Lot 293: Fine 1931 New York Yankees team signed baseball

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $15,000

Red and blue stitched Reach W.Harridge Official American League baseball has been signed by (25) incl. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Lefty Gomez, Red Ruffing, Earle Combs, Bill Dickey, George Pipgras, Cy Perkins, Herb Pennock, Sam Byrd, and others. Joe Sewell and Dusty Cooke are clubhouse signed. All are done in period fountain pen rating 7-8 out of 10. Ball displays some mild toning and light evident usage wear with faded but well defined stampings. A choice example dating to this highly desirable period.

Lot 288: Rare 1929 New York Yankees vs. Philadelphia Athletics panoramic photograph

Estimated price: $1,500-$2,500

Original sepia tone image taken from the right/center field vantage point at New York’s Yankee Stadium during a game played between the Yankees and the Philadelphia Athletics. Beautiful image shows a full crowd watching the game played on June 22, 1929 with Babe Ruth clearly visible at bat under magnification. Image itself measures 8"x25" on original cabinet mount in three sectional images as commonly seen of the era. First such example we have handled or encountered with period Yankee Stadium panoramic photography seldom offered at auction.

Here's a few other items, there's definitely several more in the auction but these are top bids. Babe Ruth signed bat, 1956 signed Yankees baseball, and this Joe DiMaggio signed jersey. As always, feel free to check out the other sports memorabilia Invaluable has up for auction. You can share any of the information as well as the pictures attached on your site! We're excited about this auction, it's in its 12th year.
