What makes a cotton baseball uniform worth $500,000? The answer is that the Brooklyn Dodgers coaching uniform was worn by Babe Ruth, America's baseball hero.  For baseball fans, this uniform is the equivalent of the Holy Grail.

This Babe Ruth uniform is the top item in a stunning 350 piece private collection amassed over 30 years and it will all be offered by Julien's Auctions, the world record breaking auction house specializing in Sports, Hollywood, Rock 'N' Roll, Contemporary Art, and more. 

Julien's Auctions has announced its highly anticipated Sports auction event to take place on Thursday, 14th November, 2019 at The Standard Oil Building in Beverly Hills and live online at juliensauctions.com. In the multi-volume catalogue set, you will find a lifetime of fantastical and diverse items:  Sports Memorabilia, Hollywood Memorabilia, Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia, and more.

In addition, Julien's Auctions and luxury ocean liner company Cunard will bring this sports collection to the high seas in an exclusive auction exhibition aboard flagship Queen Mary 2 in a voyage departing New York on September 15 and arriving in Southampton on September 22.

Brett Hughes, Managing Director of Global Sports for Julien's Auctions, says: "This sports celebrity market is one of the fastest growing areas of alternative investment collectibles; their value just keeps on growing. This particular collection from Dr. Goodman Basil Espy is comprised of carefully chosen items not seen on the market for three decades.  These items represent the dreams and ambitions of the sportsmen who captured the hearts of millions.  To own any of these items will doubtless be a dream come true for the lucky buyers. For true fans, the value of each lot is beyond price and will become a family heirloom."

If you can't make it out to Beverly Hills to bid in person, you can still watch all the action as well as bid online at Julien's Live!
