2001 World Series Game-Used Base

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,643.75

This Major League base is the actual first base which was used on the field during Game 6 of the 2001 World Series between the New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks. The base features the 2001 World Series logo on the top. The left and right side panels display the Major League Baseball logo. The logos for the New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks appear, respectively, on the front and rear side panels. On the rear side panel there is also a pre-drilled hole for the placement of a television microphone or camera. The base designation is noted on the underside in black marker: "WS 6 1B." Authentication and provenance for the base is provided by Major League Baseball. A Major League Baseball authentication program hologram (#037658) is affixed along the underside, and this identification is permanently listed in the records of Major League Baseball. Game 6, which took place on November 11th at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona, was won by the Diamondbacks by a score of 15-2.

This is a unique World Series display piece and one that is accompanied by ironclad provenance from Major League Baseball. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,643.75
