See a Picture of this Item 209 Important and Historic Bill Mazeroski 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series game worn home uniform. Cream color flannel vest style jersey and matching pants as worn by Bill Mazeroski during the 1960 World Series including during the dramatic Game #7 walk off home run. Jersey retains its original "Pirates" black on gold lettering across the front with original "9" in like color format on the reverse. Rawlings "Hall of Fame Flannel" manufacturer's label remains affixed to the tail front along with small "44" size tag beneath which is chain stitched, "Mazeroski 9 60". Original wash instructions tagging is found inside tail front. Matching pants retain identical Rawlings "Hall of Fame Flannel" tagging inside the waistband alongside wash instructions tag. Two separate strip tags are sewn into the waistband with chain stitching including, "9 36 25ins 60" (uniform #, size, and year) and "Mazeroski". The jersey exhibits appropriate use while remaining in outstanding overall condition having bright color and strong visual eye appeal. Scattered areas of light staining are found predominantly across the front of the jersey which based upon period photography we can almost definitively attribute to the champagne with which Mazeroski was doused in the Pirates locker room. Pants display similar use consistent with the jersey inclusive of several stains that appear to be from the locker room champagne. As specifically recounted by Bill Mazeroski, after the euphoria on the field he retreated through the Pirates dugout and into the locker room where he was besieged with jubilant teammates and numerous newspaper reporters. This is corroborated by period photography and on field video. It was around this time point that he was given a "champagne bath" by his teammates which is also confirmed by period photography. In several instances of these period images there are distinct matching characteristic points between the offered jersey and image. One example in particular definitively pinpoints the offered jersey as being the one worn by Mazeroski in that historic game. The photo is a vintage sepia tone 8"x10" image picturing Mazeroski shaking hands with teammate Gino Cimoli. In the photo several unique matching points are clearly visible including two small stitching anomalies on the "R" in Pirates as well as the unique spacing between the 'branches' of the "T" in Pirates. Additionally, at the bottom of the tail area in the photograph the chain stitching matching the offered jersey is visible along with "44" sizing label pictured above. Button hole positioning as it relates to the affixed jersey lettering is also identical in both Game #s 1 and 7 photographs. Another wonderful piece of further confirmation of the jersey's use in World Series play is a period sepia tone 8"x10" image picturing Mazeroski hugging Dick Groat after Game #1 played in Forbes Field. In that image the identical matching characteristics are succinctly visible providing valuable confirmation documenting the "bookend" use of the jersey in Game #s 1 and 7 of the 1960 World Series. As referenced within other areas of this catalogue, the 1960 World Series Game #7 walk off home run stands to date as one of the most iconic moments in the history of the game. This uniform has remained with Bill Mazeroski for the past 53 years carefully stored and preserved in its original state since being taken off on that historic afternoon. The significance of this uniform and the moment it represents simply cannot be overstated. It is with confidence that we can rank its import as one of , and quite likely singular, the finest uniforms ever offered as related to a specific significant baseball event. Its unimpeachable primary source provenance coupled with period photographic documentation only further enhance its desirability both in value and ironclad authenticity. Museum quality offering in every respect of the terminology and it is our privilege to have been afforded the honor of offering same. The jersey is not currently autographed but will be signed by Bill Mazeroski if so desired by the winning bidder. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions, LOA from MEARS Authentication - Graded MEARS Perfect A10, several period photographs from Bill Mazeroski's personal collection picturing the jersey, and detailed notarized letter of provenance from Bill Mazeroski: EX (Estimate Upon Request) $550,000.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 210 Historic Bill Mazeroski professional model bronzed baseball bat attributed to the 1960 World Series Game #7 Walk Off Home Run. Louisville Slugger 125 model bat measures 35" long with "Bill Mazeroski" facsimile signature stamped on barrel end. Louisville Slugger model number "S2" is stamped on the end of the knob which is appropriate for use by Mazeroski during the 1960 season according to Hillerich & Bradsby Co. factory records. Additionally, although the weight is difficult to discern given the bronze plating, the Louisville Slugger centerbrand stampings are consistent with specific 1960 season stamping anomalies. (See "A Complete Reference Guide Louisville Slugger Professional Baseball Bats" by Vince Malta, pg. 31, Plate #3, C15A with P9 variation). The bat was bronzed in the period shortly after the 1960 World Series by a gentleman in Chicago on behalf of Bill Mazeroski. Although bronzed, definitive game use is evident inclusive of extensive ball marks and stitching impressions, one of which likely represents the impact point of one of the most famous home runs in the history of the game. The bat itself remains in fine general condition with an area around the knob end at which the bronze plating has become partially separated with small crack. Currently affixed to a period mahogany wall placard as originally displayed in the Mazeroski home, the bat is easily removable if so desired as shown in the catalogue photography. Applied brass placard on the wooden plaque inscribed, "Bat Used to Hit Game Winning Home Run of the 1960 World Series by Bill Maseroski Final Score Pirates (10)-Yankee's 9." Comically, the last name is obviously misspelled "Maseroski" with an "s" as executed incorrectly in the period. The offered bat was removed by Bill Mazeroski from his locker the next day after the final game of the World Series along with the home uniform and cleats from the same game. Included with the bat is a period newspaper article with photo of Bill and wife, Milene, admiring the bronzed bat on plaque. The article was from a story published by the Akron Beacon Journal on January 10, 1961 with content inclusive of a specific mention of the bat, "What is Bill's most prized possession? 'This bat', the 24 year old All-Star second baseman said, as he proudly displayed the Louisville Slugger-now encased in bronze-which he used as a key to sports history books. 'I have a special place reserved for it in our new home," Bill's pretty wife Milene said." While the moment of the historic home run is immortalized by Mazeroski jubilantly galloping around the bases, the actual imagery and video of the swing and contact at home plate is scant at best given the significance of the moment. It is understood that the format of Forbes Field did not allow for large quantities of photographers coupled with the fact that the game was being played in Pittsburgh not New York, where certainly more news men of the day would have been present. One of the better images of the at bat was taken by noted photographer Neil Leifer and does in fact confirm the bat to be a Louisville Slugger model based on visibility of a partial centerbrand area. While the locker room images after the game clearly picture the uniform as worn that day, the only image we could locate of Bill Mazeroski with a baseball bat is a composed image depicting him kissing an unused 1960 World Series presentation model bat for the purposes of photographers only. As confirmed by Bill Mazeroski himself, this very bat, as used to hit the historic home run, was his most cherished item as it related to the iconic moment. Incredible artifact which absolutely ranks among the most important game-used bats of any type or era to have entered the collecting marketplace. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions, Original 1961 newspaper article with photograph picturing the bat, and detailed notarized letter of provenance from Bill Mazeroski: EX (Estimate Upon Request) $280,000.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 211 Bill Mazeroski professional model cleats attributed to the 1960 World Series Game #7 Walk Of Home Run. Pair of original black leather cleats worn by Bill Mazeroski during the 1960 World Series including the game #7 walk off home run. The cleats were bronzed shortly after the World Series along with the bat which was used that day as well and have remained within Bill Mazeroski's personal collection since that time. Although bronzed, evident usage wear is clearly visible inclusive of surface creasing to the leather along with interior wear consistent with use. The cleats have been mounted to walnut wooden plinths for display. Fascinating to envision that upon these very cleats touching home plate on that date of October 13, 1960 the game became official in one of the greatest World Series games ever played. The cleats are currently not autographed by Bill Mazeroski but may be signed should the winning bidder desire as much. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions and notarized letter of provenance from Bill Mazeroski: EX (Estimate Upon Request) $85,000.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 212 Important Bill Mazeroski 1960 World Series Most Outstanding Player "Babe Ruth Award" plaque with related materials. Within the rich history of the World Series there have been countless memorable performances by individual players in contribution to their team effort to win. There could be no credible debate as to the most notable of those individual performances that would not include Bill Mazeroski's 1960 World Series Game #7 walk off home run. As such, it was merely a formality that the New York Chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America would bestow its prestigious honor unto Bill Mazeroski as the Most Outstanding Player of the 1960 World Series. Initially presented in 1949 one year after its namesake, Babe Ruth, had passed away the annual accolade was presented to the outstanding player of the World Series each year. Black painted oval wooden plaque displays an applied sterling silver placard with crossed bat and ball decor inscribed to Mazeroski. 13 1/2" tall marked "Sterling" with Dieges & Clust hallmarks on front and label on the reverse. Overall condition presents beautifully with some typical light surface wear to the black painted surface. In addition to the identical award as presented to Whitey Ford in 1961 which we had the privilege of offering within our 2008 MLB All-Star Game live auction, the 1960 Mazeroski specimen is firmly positioned as one of the most significant of its type to have been offered at public auction. The plaque is accompanied by several notable supportive pieces to include: Original image of Mazeroski receiving the plaque along with the original typewritten letter of notification from the BBWAA. 12"x24" black and white panoramic image taken at the dinner awards picturing Mazeroski and the hundreds of guests. The program from the award ceremony is also included which desirably features a brief handwritten paragraph as penned by Bill Mazeroski relating to his acceptance speech which reads, "Home Run Greatest Thrill but being invited here to NY BBWAA dinner and receiving the Babe Ruth award is almost as great a thrill." Additionally included is a Bill Mazeroski single signed baseball with inscription, "1960 WS Babe Ruth Award". Includes auction LOA from JSA (ball): Award: EX-MT ($20,000-$40,000) $36,000.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 213 Superb 1960 Bill Mazeroski Pittsburgh Pirates professional model road uniform with likely attribution to the 1960 World Series. Grey flannel vest style jersey and pants as worn by Mazeroski during the Pirates World Championship season of 1960. Jersey retains its original "Pirates" black on yellow lettering across the front matching piping remaining intact along the shirt perimeter. Proper MacGregor tagging found within the collar area having size 44 indicator with "Set 1 1960" flag tag inside the tail front. Back of jersey proudly displays the original "9" in black on yellow felt. Matching pants feature and inset strip tag within the waistline area having "9 34 25" chain stitched in red. Additional MacGregor and "Set 1 1960" flag tagging found as well. Also included is an original pair of Bill Mazeroski's black with yellow striped socks dating to the 1960s period. The uniform remains in stunning original condition with brilliant color and appropriate moderate evident use throughout. At the printing date of this catalogue we are not yet able to definitively state whether the offered uniform is in fact the specimen worn by Mazeroski during one, or all, of game #s 3-5 of the 1960 World Series played in New York. It is however highly likely that this particular uniform was in fact worn during the World Series based on several substantive circumstantial items to include: 1) Definitive original tagging to the 1960 season. 2) Fine overall condition as often found on jerseys manufactured and/or worn specifically for World Series play. 3) Confirmed removal of the uniform by Bill Mazeroski from his locker after the 1960 World Series along with the home example offered within this auction. While obviously not worn by Mazeroski during the epic Game #7 played in Pittsburgh this particular uniform is almost certainly without equal save for the home shirt worn in the aforementioned game. Condition, visual appeal, 1960 season dating, and sterling provenance equate to a true museum quality piece worthy of the most advanced collecting taste. The uniform is currently not autographed by Bill Mazeroski but will be included if the winning bidder desires as much.**Note: Please refer to our website for any updated information as to the 1960 World Series attribution. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions and notarized letter of provenance from Bill Mazeroski: EX-EX/MT (Estimate Upon Request) $50,000.00

See a Picture of this Item 217 Warren Giles NL baseball with possible use in Game #7 of 1960 World Series. Light to moderately toned Giles National League ball with apparent game use having been inscribed to Bill Mazeroski and the Pittsburgh Pirates by Clement Brewer Buell.

Although unclear as to the origins of the ball it appears likely that it was obtained at the game and then subsequently given to Mazeroski: EX ($500-$750) $450.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 218 Significant October 5, 1960 World Series Game #1 baseball with attribution to Bill Mazeroski's Home Run. Official Giles National League baseball exhibiting appropriate use and surface wear attributed to being hit by Bill Mazeroski for a home run in game #1 of the 1960 World Series. It was the fourth inning of the initial game of the 1960 World Series contest being played at Pittsburgh's Forbes Field in which Mazeroski connected off of Yankees pitcher Jim Coates for a two run home run to take the lead in the series opener. The ball itself presents in its original condition with period inscription as written by Mazeroski in blue ink, "World Series Home Run Ball , October 5, 1960". As recalled by Mazeroski the ball was presented to him immediately following the game and has been within his collection since that date. It is very relevant to note that while Mazeroski was always revered for his exceptional defensive skill he was additionally respected for his clutch hitting as well. It is interesting and of a certain irony that in the seven games played in the 1960 World Series Bill Mazeroski belted two home runs. Hal Smith and Rocky Nelson's game seven home runs were the only other two hit by Pittsburgh players in the 1960 World Series. While it has become apparent over time that the magical Game # 7 Walk Off home run baseball has been lost to the ages the offered exemplar survives as its closest relative. Unique and interesting historic baseball with desirable primary source origination. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions and notarized letter of provenance from Bill Mazeroski confirming its possession within his personal collection since the 1960 World Series: VG-EX ($10,000-$20,000) $7,000.00

See a Picture of this Item 240 Rare Bill Mazeroski professional model fielder's glove with apparent photo match c.1963. Wilson model glove as worn by Mazeroski showing outstanding use as characteristic of the scant few gloves used by him during his playing career. Wilson manufacturer's label remains affixed to the glove backstrapping with "9" written in black ink on back of glove. Overall evident use is substantive with glove remaining in fine original unrestored condition. Missing a portion of the lacings at the bottom of the heel area. Amazingly, within the personal scrapbooks of Bill Mazeroski was found an article from June 4, 1963 the content of which related to the condition and related use of Mazeroski's gloves. "It smells like Mazeroski's glove." became a favorite quote of his Pirates' teammates when referencing a matter of foul odors as noted in the article. The article also pictures a comparison between Bill's glove and a new example to illustrate the heavy use. Based on comparisons between the glove pictured in the photographs and the offered glove we can ascertain that they are one in the same. Most notably a small tear to the back of the pocket area which is actually referenced and shown in the news photographs having a small black arrow denoting same. As corroborated by Bill Mazeroski himself it was widely know that he used only a handful of gloves during his Major League career with the offered example being one of only five total that are confirmed to have originated from Bill's personal collection. One of the finest Hall of Fame player model game gloves we have offered with unique significance to the included period photo documentation. The glove is currently not autographed by Bill Mazeroski but will be included if the winning bidder desires as much. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions: VG ($15,000-$25,000) $13,000.00

Bat shows tremendous use with characteristics to include ball marks, stitching impressions, rack marks, and cleat marks. Model #U1 stamped on knob end along with vintage "21" written in red marker. This particular example is truly exceptional with regard to visual appearance and degree of use remaining in superb original condition. Rare and desirable "Momen Clemente" facsimile signature stamping on the barrel end as seen on Clemente's early career era game bats. It is widely recognized that this nickname of "Momen" was derived from the Spanish word "momenito" which meant to "wait a second" and was used frequently by Clemente as a youth. After the 1960 season Clemente switched his bat stampings to the traditional "Roberto" first name variant. The earlier "Momen" stamped bats are markedly rare and equally desirable dating to the earlier portion of his playing career. Special mention must be made regarding the condition and rarity of the "Momen" stamping format coupled with the unimpeachable provenance having originated from teammate and Hall of Fame member Bill Mazeroski's personal collection. Based on the aforementioned we feel confident in rating the offered bat among the very finest Roberto Clemente game bats extant. Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions: EX ($20,000-$40,000) $75,000.00
