RUNNEMEDE, N.J. — Just a week after selling a Wayne Gretzky rookie card for $465,000 in its live auction in Atlantic City, N.J., Goldin Auctions sold Muhammad Ali’s fight-worn boxing gloves from his 1971 fight with Joe Frazier for $606,375 in the firm’s August 13 summer catalog auction online. In all, 1,500 lots of memorabilia attained $5.8 million in sales.
“The prices realized in our live and catalog auction this week reinforce that the sports memorabilia market is vibrant and that collectors are not only passionate for rare items from legendary figures like Ruth, Mantle, Jordan, Ali and Gretzky but also the burgeoning market for boxing, hockey and Olympic sports,” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions.
