Kirk Gibson Memorabilia



I remember watching this final game of the world series.  Kirk is the pinch hitter(injured knee).  Grand slam, wins the game.  Oh yeah, he limps around every single base…he isn’t feeling any pain.  Awesome game.

AP reported that a father-son sports collectors team from Santa Barbara bought the bat that Kirk Gibson used for his historic home run in the 1988 World Series for $575,912.40 on November 14 in SCP Auctions’ October/November auction, and also took home the four other Gibson artifacts on sale. The bid for Gibson’s bat is the second-highest amount paid for a game-used bat, behind only Babe Ruth’s signed bat used for the first home run at Yankee Stadium, which SCP sold in 2004 for $1.265 million.
