Legendary Yankee Items Sell At Auction
Over the course of the past twenty four hours, many famous New York Yankee pieces of memorabilia have sold at auction. Included in the auction were:
Lou Gehrig's 1931 contract with the New York Yankees ($216,000)
A scouting report on Derek Jeter from April 1992 ($102,000)
a baseball signed by Eddie Plank in 1915 ($228,000)
a bat used by Mickey Mantle in his rookie season of 1951 ($168,000)
a glove Mickey Mantle used in 1965 ($144,000)
baseballs signed by the Yankees championship teams from 1926 ($120,000)
baseballs signed by the 1927 "Murderers Row" edition of the team ($120,000).
The item that I found most intriguing was the 1992 scouting report on Derek Jeter. The report was one from Jeter's high school playing days at Kalamazoo, Michigan. Below is the full write up of the scouting report. At the bottom of the scouting report filed by Dick Groch it says Jeter is a "five tool player and a future All Star"
