You Can Purchase Mike Schmidt’s Crown If You Have Enough Money
From The Phillies Collector comes this exciting news: Mike Schmidt is auctioning off a bunch of memorabilia. Even more exciting: you can buy this crown Schmidt got in 1976 for winning the major league home run title with 38.
Currently, the crown has one bid of $25,000. Can you top that? If so: You, too, can live like a (home run) king!
There are 18 lots of Schmidt memorabilia in all currently up for auction.
Among the higher-profile items are his “Actual 1984 Gold Glove Award” (4 bids, highest is $13,000), the bat Schmidt used to hit his 400th homer (8 bids, $17,000) and his high school letterman sweater (no bids, $1,000 opening).
Also, there is an (auto-pen) signed letter from George H.W. Bush. No one has met the $1,000 opening bid yet. Somehow, I doubt that one will sell.
The rest of this stuff is great, though. Do you have lots of money and fancy yourself a king? Go buy that crown!
