Mattingly Benz, Valentine Uniform Among Auction Finds

New York baseball memorabilia are front and center as sports marketplace CollectibleXchange.Com has launched its “Mid-Summer Auction,” where collectors can bid on over 400 amazing signed and vintage items.

Yankees-themed items include Yankee great Don Mattingly’s autographed 1985 Mercedes-Benz (current bid $18,100); a pair of 1998 World Series-used cleats signed by Mariano Rivera; and a large equipment storage trunk from the Old Yankee Stadium.

Mets pieces are highlighted by manager Bobby Valentine’s game-worn 2000 Subway Series uniform and a framed photograph of “The Catch,” Ron Swoboda’s epic 1969 World Series play robbing Brooks Robinson, signed by both players.

More vintage fans may want to take a stab at a 14-signature 1957 Brooklyn Dodgers Reunion photo.

The platform from collectibles pioneer Brandon Steiner continues through Sept. 12. To register and bid visit
