BIDDING RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES

The auctioneer will determine the highest bidder. The auctioneer alone has the right to reopen the bidding of an item if deemed necessary due to a dispute. If there is a tie bid between the floor and Internet or absentee bid, the floor bid takes precedence. MORPHY’S and its representatives reserve the right to remove those attendees who impede preview and/or the auction. Title to all merchandise shall pass to the highest bidder at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. The buyer will then assume all risk and full responsibility of the lot purchased once ownership has changed. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. MORPHY’S is not responsible for any errors in bids, omissions of bids, or failure to execute bids and shall have no liability to any bidder for any technical or other failure associated with the internet, absentee bidding, or telephone bidding. • ABSENTEE BIDDING - MORPHY’S will accept absentee bids if pre-authorized by mail, fax or through www.morphyauctions. com online. Absentee bidders must use the absentee bid form and clearly mark the lot number, title and maximum bid amount. Absentee bidding forms may be accessed online at www. morphyauctions.com. If there are two (2) identical bids placed on the same item, priority will be given to the first bid received. All bids must be left in increments as explained on our bid form. If a bid is “out of increment,” the auctioneer has the right to round the bid up to the next correct increment.

PACKING/SHIPPING

• It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping and handlings & insurance costs into consideration when bidding on items. • BIDDERS PRESENT AND TAKING ITEMS AFTER AUCTION – Since item liability transfers upon a successful bid, items paid for must be packed, transported and/or removed by the purchaser at his/ her own risk after the close of the sale. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. If any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the purchaser. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • ITEMS NOT PICKED UP THE DAY OF THE SALE – Packaging, shipping, and insurance on items will be made available as an added courtesy and cost.

Dimensional size is length (the longest measurement) + (height x 2) + (width x 2).

174 - 1969 SEATTLE PILOTS DON MINCHER HOME JERSEY. 1969 was an All Star Year for Don Mincher as a member of the one year Seattle Pilots. The jersey is restored home white flannel just like almost every known example. They were all sent to the minors after the season with only a couple of unrestored shirts known. “Mincher” is chain stitched in the collar and “69” is stitched in the tail along with a Wilson tag. The “5” on the reverse appears to be a team replacement rather than restored. The “Seattle Pilots” on the front has been restored to its original state. A very nice example of one of the best players on that team. 2,000.00 - 3,000.00 175 - 1940-1950’S INDIANS JERSEY. 1950’s style Indians jersey made by Shenk & Tittle, Harrisburg Pa.

Rawlings pants have the “1952” year tag sewn in the back with dry clean only and are size 40 waist (he definitely wore very baggy pants during those years). The only other marking is a pen number “45” in the waist from possible minor league use. Musial has signed the thigh in black sharpie and notated “My Game Pants-1952!” Lacking any other identifying marks we had to rely on Musial’s inscription to help authenticate these. Heavy game use.

179 - 1960 YOGI BERRA GAME USED YANKEES ROAD JERSEY FLANNEL. I guess the question needs to be asked was this the jersey Berra was wearing in left field as Bill Mazeroski’s game 7 home run sailed over his head to win the 1960 World Series. With only two road jerseys issued by the Yankees in 1960 it certainly has a good chance. Obtained long before internet photo matching this jersey has been tucked away since it was first offered in 1993 as part of the Binghamton collection in Lelands. While the jersey has gone through some restoration to the front, the #8 is absolutely original to the shirt. The New York on the front is perfectly restored as they removed the original to send to the minor leagues. Wilson size 42 in the front tail and a there is a partial tag above with 1960 (Berra is missing). To be accurate a faded name can be seen in the collar in marker which was common to do to these type of jerseys. Shirt was obtained by the general manager Jerry Toman who was in charge of the uniforms sent directly from the Yankees. It includes a 1992 Letter of Opinion from Dick Dobbins stating “the owner should feel confident that this is an authentic Yankee jersey undoubtedly used by Yogi Berra”. Besides the Dobbins letter, there is a letter from Jerry Toman, the Binghamton Manager in the 1960’s and a copy of original catalog listing. (Excellent). 20,000.00 - 30,000.00 58

228 - BASEBALL CANVAS PAINTING. Framed: 28-3/4 x 21-1/4. Circa 19th century. Painting represents an 1870’s game scene. Equipment is limited to catcher’s glove as there were no masks.

405 - PENN STATE FIESTA BOWL TROPHY. 17” x 14”. Penn State Fiesta Bowl Trophy presented to Joe Paterno and team originates from the estate of athletic director Jim Tarman who retired from PSU in 1993. This is the only example that we know of in private hands. We deduce that this is from 1992 when Penn State defeated Tennessee. We can account for all the others, the National Championship trophy is on display in the Penn State Museum and the other three reside in the office of Coach James Franklin. The bronze trophy set into a natural wood base measuring 17” tall total. The plaque on the front was removed when it was sold out of the estate. Bronze is signed 1993/1994 (clearly this date is wrong) Fiesta Bowl D Perry c. 1981. Accompanied by two books signed by Paterno to Jim (Tarman).
