I began my baseball collection in 1995. One of my favorite
pieces is the baseball that went through Bill Buckner's
legs in the 1986 World Series. Everyone always says to
me, "I thought that Charlie Sheen had that ball!"
He did until he sold most of his baseball collection in
April of 2000.
Another of my favorite pieces is Reggie Jackson's third
home run ball from Game 6 of the 1977 World Series.
They didn't start calling him "Mr. October"
until he hit those three home runs. This ball earned
him his nickname.
Also in this section: a baseball signed by The Beatles
on August 15, 1965 when they played their famous Shea
Stadium concert; the home run ball hit by Babe Ruth
in 1921 that tied him for the all-time career lead in
home runs with 136; a baseball signed by and containing
a poignant message from President Clinton during the
baseball strike in 1994 and a baseball pitched by Johnny
Vander Meer during his incredible second consecutive
no-hitter on June 16, 1938.
Read my baseball poem, Mulrooney On The Hill,
illustrated by former pitcher Bob Tewksbury.
