Selections from the Geddy Lee Collection
And Important Baseball Memorabilia
Event date 21 November - 7 December
Event location New York & Online
This December, Christie’s and Hunt Auctions proudly present an historic collection of baseball memorabilia during Selections from the Geddy Lee Collection and Important Baseball Memorabilia sales. As frontman and touring member of the storied rock and roll group Rush, Geddy Lee has spent over 40 years collecting hundreds of autographed and historic milestone baseballs. In that time, he’s amassed a collection that spans three centuries of American and MLB history.
From baseballs signed by some of the most famous (and infamous) players, including the White Sox’s “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and the Negro Leagues’ Josh Gibson, to baseballs that boast signatures from epoch-defining leaders like JFK and FDR—this collection sits right at the intersection of the history of America and its national pastime. The Gladstone Collection, which holds iconic works like the ‘The Base Ball Player’ bronze sculpture, will complement the Geddy Lee Collection, in addition to never-before-seen items from the personal collection of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson. Other items brought to market for the first time include uniforms and caps worn by the likes of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
