Have you seen this ball?

Actually, I don't have a picture of it.

It's the famous Kirk Gibson homerun ball from the 1988 World Series. It seems that no one has any idea where the ball is or who might have it. You can read the Yahoo article here.

The story came up because SCP Auctions is auctioning off Kirk Gibson's jersey, batting helmet and bat from Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. They also have a number of other related pieces in the sale like the World Series Trophy.

That I don't understand. How do you sell the World Series Trophy? Do all the players get a replica of the real trophy?

Anyway, GCRL and Night Owl, let us know which pieces you get in the auction. It's situations like this that make me wish I was filthy rich.


  1. I don't do memorabilia. A number of the people in that part of the hobby are insane or crooked.

  2. I would kill for any one of those pieces.

  3. I'd like to amend my earlier statement. ... If this item became available to me, I would SELL IT for loads of cash.

    Yup. I still don't do memorabilia. And cash buys a lot of cards.
