1983-2014 Home Run Derby Ticket Collection (31) - #1 PSA Set Registry!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $840
Near-complete run of MLB All-Star Workout/Home Run Derby tickets (1985-2014; missing only 1986), plus tickets from the 1983 All-Star Old Timers Day and 1984 All-Star Workout. All tickets are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is the finest collection of Home Run Derby tickets in the hobby, and it ranks number one on the PSA Set Registry. The Home Run Derby, which is the highlight of the All-Star Workout (held on the day before the All-Star Game), began in 1985 and remains one of the game's most popular events. Interestingly, the 1988 Home Run Derby was canceled due to rain, and the ticket from this event is considered one of the keys to the collection since the event did not take place and many tickets were destroyed. This is the most complete run of Home Run Derby tickets we have ever seen, let alone offered, which, incredibly, includes twenty-two full-ticket examples. Unless otherwise noted, each ticket listed is a full ticket. The collection is comprised of the following: Home Run Derby Tickets (29): 1985 (stub; NM 7); 1987 (stub; VG-EX 4); 1988 (EX 5), 1989 (stub; PR 1); 1990 (NM 7); 1991 (stub; VG 3); 1992 (MINT 9); 1993 (stub; MINT 9); 1994 (EX 5); 1995 (stub; AUTHENTIC); 1996 (VG-EX 4); 1997 (NM-MT 8); 1998 (stub; EX 5); 1999 (stub; VG-EX 4); 2000 (NM-MT 8); 2001 (NM-MT 8); 2002 (EX 5); 2003 (EX-MT 6); 2004 (EX-MT 6); 2005 (NM-MT 8); 2006 (EX 5); 2007 (GEM MT 10); 2008 (EX 5; signed on the front by Josh Hamilton in blue Sharpie[grading "10]; accompanied by a COA from JSA); 2009 (MINT 9); 2010 (MINT 9); 2011 (EX 5); 2012 (EX-MT 6); 2013 (EX-MT 6); and 2014 (MINT 9). All-Star Old Timers Day Ticket (1): 1983 (NM-MT 8). All-Star Workout Day Ticket (1): 1984 (stub, VG 3). This is an exceptional and comprehensive collection of All-Star Home Run Derby tickets, with several notable highlights. Total: 31 tickets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $840
