Hunt Auction at the Louisville Slugger Museum

The famous Hunt Auctions had a massive memorabilia auction today. Who says memorabilia has lost value ?

My favorite piece – 1912 invitation cover to the opening of Fenway Park in 1912. I lost out on the bidding here. The cover sold for $1200.

All of the items in the auction also have a buyer’s premium attached and freight. A buyer’s premium is generally about 15% on top of your bid that goes to the auction house.
