"500 Home Run Club" limited-edition signed bat and signed photograph personally obtained by Barry Halper at one of the early 500 Home Run Club signing shows in the 1980s. At that time there were eleven then-living members of that elite fraternity: Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Ernie Banks, Mike Schmidt, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Frank Robinson, Willie McCovey, Eddie Mathews, Reggie Jackson, and Harmon Killebrew. Each of the eleven players has signed both the bat and photo in blue Sharpie and all of the signatures grade "10." The bat, a thirty-four inch Rawlings blue-ring model P302, includes an affixed plaque on the barrel featuring the engraved names of the club members. It is numbered "9/300" on the knob. The color photo (20 x 16 inches) pictures the eleven players posing together at the event and is numbered "29/500" in the lower right corner. Both items are in Near Mint condition. The photograph has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 22 x 18 inches. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 2 items (bat and photo). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
