Lot 1053: 2004 ALCS Game 7 Game Used Pitching Rubber Signed By Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling And More
Auction Date:11/30/2005 9:00 PM EST
Batter up! This was called one of the most anticipated games in sports history. As far as the New York Yankees was concerned, with their earlier three game lead, this October 20th, 2004 game should not have even been necessary to play. But The Boston Red Sox were out to break the curse. Down by 3 games, the Red Sox finally started their momentum and kept it up. So Game 7 of the 2004 American League Championship Series became the baseball event. The New York Yankees vs. The Boston Red Sox took the field and pitch by pitch, pitcher by pitcher, one could say this game-used pitching rubber became the footnote to history. Signed in black marker by Bosox pitchers Pedro Martinez, Curt Schilling, Bronson Arroyo, Tim Wakefield and closer Keith Fouke, this mound dirt encrusted pitching rubber is the definitive Red Sox collectible for this or any other season. Why? Because shortly after the clock struck midnight (Eastern time), Boston had beaten the Yankees 10-3 and were headed to the World Series! Step up to the mound, take a full wind-up and make the winning pitch for this ultra-rare piece of baseball history and celebrate one of the most important ALCS Game 7’s of all time. MLB hologram affixed, and comes with Steiner LOA (authenticity is unconditionally guaranteed, certified and signed by Chairman and CEO Brandon Steiner) as well.
