Do I hear 30, 30, 30, 30, 30, we got 30. Whatabout 40, 40, 40…â†µ
OK my best effort at an auctioneer’s call. I do it much better in person.â†µ
A company called SCP Auctions is holding a news conference tomorrow in Los Angeles to announce that several items from the greatest moment in LA Dodgers history, the Game 1 home run by current D-backs manager Kirk Gibson to end that first game of the 1988 World Series ("She is…gone!!!!"), will be auctioned.â†µ
According to SCP, Gibson’s bat, batting helmet, home and road uniforms, World Series trophy and Most Valuable Player plaque will be available via an Internet auction Oct. 27-Nov. 13. The items will be displayed at the news conference and Gibson will speak via recorded video.â†µ
Will Gibby tell us why? I mean, seriously, those are some valuable items. He can’t be a in pinch for cash after being named permanent manager, right? Well, at least he has the home run ball.
