Earl Weaver to Sell Personal Baseball Memorabilia Collection

Earl Weaver to Sell Personal Baseball Memorabilia Collection

Former Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver has decided that now is the time to sell his valuable collection of baseball memorabilia. His reasoning? He wants to raise money to disperse between his 4 children. Given the variety and value of the items, he knows that it would be difficult to split everything evenly when he passes and this allows him the ability to do so. The 47 item lot is expected to bring in as much as $150,000.

The items are now available for pre-bidding online until May 12th at 10 PM EST through the Hunt Auctions website. After that time, only in-person and phone bidding will be allowed. Some of the highlights of the auction include: Weaver's Retired Number presentation, his Hall of Fame Induction ring and his 1966 Orioles World Series Championship Ring.

However Weaver will not be parting with all of the items in his collection. The 4 pennant rings he won as a manager will remain in his family, as will a personalized photo given to him from Cal Ripken Jr. Unfortunately, his most-prized possession, the 1970 World Series Championship ring, was stolen from his Florida home while renters were occupying the house.

Earl Weaver was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996. As the Orioles skipper he racked up 1,480 victories and the 1970 MLB title.
