Mike Piazza 9/11 Jersey Up for Auction
An artifact from one of the most memorable moments in New York Mets history is heading to the auction block. The jersey worn by Mets catcher Mike Piazza on September 21, 2001 will be sold by Goldin Auctions on April 30, 2016 during a live event in New York City.
Goldin has a very conservative estimate of $25,000 attached to this piece of history, but the feeling is that it will very well break the record for the highest amount paid for a game-used jersey. In 2008, a jersey worn by Nolan Ryan in 1970 sold for the record price of $53,758. But the significance of Piazza’s jersey is expected to bring in at least double that amount when you consider how much famous home run jerseys have sold for in the past.
