(CBS DETROIT) – An opportunity to own items from former Detroit Tiger’s baseball legend Dennis “Denny” McLain, including rare sports memorabilia from his personal sports memorabilia collection as he prepares to downsize, will take place during a 3-day estate sale at his home in Wixom, Michigan. Presented by Aaron’s Estate Sales, the Estate of Dennis McLain sale runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2 through Sunday, Oct. 4.
For decades the name Denny McLain has been synonymous with excellence in the sports field. His 1968 World Series win for the Tigers secured his legacy, awarding him the Cy Young Award, as well as the American League MVP, unseating Dizzy Dean to become Major League Baseball’s first 30-game winner since 1934 – a feat accomplished by only 11 players in the 20th century.READ MORE: Michigan Expected to Receive Large Batch of Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Tuesday
McLain’s impressive collection of sports memorabilia dates back largely to the 1930s through the 1970s. Fans and sports collectors alike can add a permanent piece to their own collection, including:
- Framed, 1968 Detroit Tigers baseball card collection
- Framed, Jerome Herman Dean Time magazine cover and signed autograph
- Framed Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle signed photograph
- Framed Don Russ Hall of Fame Diamond King Hank Aaron puzzle, signed by Hank Aaron
- Framed, Mickey Lolich signed 1968 baseball card
- Denny McLain signed baseball gloves, license plate and more
Items are still being catalogued so there is more to come, including many items from the 1968 World Series.
McLain will live stream his “No Filter Sports” podcast show with Eli Zaret and Bob Page from his home throughout the sale and autograph purchased items for $25 per item. Those looking to “get in the game” in advance of the general public can purchase a ticket to the Dennis McLain Estate Sale VIP Day, taking place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1.
