Fall Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
OAL(Brown) BB used in the game in which Rickey Henderson stole his record setting 939 base to pass Lou Brock for the most stolen bases in baseball history. On a side panel in strong 9/10 blue ink Henderson has written: "5/1/91 Game Ball Rickey Henderson". Ball itself displays good game use.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Rickey Henderson and a COA from Man of Steal Sports, Henderson's memorabilia company run by his longtime personal memorabilia manager, Mike Weiss. The ball (hologram #A273083) is part of Bill Albert's Rickey Henderson collection. Albert worked as a staff photographer for the San Jose Giants minor league baseball club (Giants single A affiliate) and did freelance photography for the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A's developing relationships with many Bay Area professional athletes. He acquired most, if not all, of his Rickey items through Mike Weiss and Man of Steal Sports.
