500 HR Club Full-Ticket Collection - 23 of the 26 Players Represented!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,200

This amazing collection is comprised of twenty-three full tickets, all issued for games in which a member of the 500 Home Run Club hit a home run. Incredibly, the twenty-three tickets represent games for twenty-three different players, with only Ruth, Foxx, and Ott home-run tickets needed for completion. Ideally, five of the tickets included here were issued for the game in which the respective player hit his milestone 500th home run: Reggie Jackson, Mark McGwire, Frank Thomas, Alex Rodriguez, and Eddie Murray. The remainder of the players represented here are Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, Eddie Mathews, Harmon Killebrew, Willie McCovey, Mike Schmidt, Ernie Banks, Gary Sheffield, Barry Bonds, Rafael Palmeiro, Ken Griffy Jr., Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, Sammy Sosa, and Albert Pujols. It should be noted that full tickets from home-run games of some of the earlier members, such as Mantle, Williams and Killebrew, are quite scarce, making this an extremely difficult collection to put together. It took our consignor years to assemble this collection, at considerable expense. This is a unique grouping and one that would be perfect for presentation in a framed display, if so desired. A complete inventory list for this lot, with details regarding each ticket, can be found on our website. Total: 23 full tickets. SOLD FOR $1,200
