WEST BERLIN, NJ – JULY 7, 2014 – – Collectors participating in the highly anticipated Goldin Auctions Babe Ruth 100th Anniversary Auction are not only excited about the rare items from The Babe up for bids but also the 1,300+ lots of memorabilia in the historic auction. Although the items from Ruth have garnered most of the attention, Ken Goldin, the Founder of Goldin Auctions wants to remind collectors that there is something for every collector in the upcoming live and online auction.
“The 100th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s MLB debut gave us a great reason to celebrate his remarkable career and entice collectors to consign precious items to this auction,” explains Goldin. “As a result, we unearthed some amazing items that may even rival the items from The Bambino in desirability and rarity. We’re excited to see the response from collectors over the next two weeks.”
