LA gets glimpse of rich memorabilia collection ahead of auction

Letters from Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe’s U.S. army ID, signed Muhammad Ali boxing gloves, vintage radios and a whole host of American sports memorabilia are set to go under the hammer.

The remarkably rich lifetime collection by Atlanta-born doctor Goodman Basil Espy III will be held for auction at Beverly Hills in Los Angeles on Thursday (November 14).

Many of the more than 400 sports items from the worlds of gridiron football, basketball, baseball and hockey are expected to fetch thousands of dollars each, with some hitting the tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands.

A coaching uniform for the Brooklyn Dodgers worn by Babe Ruth is among the highlights of the collection and is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $400,000.

Espy’s collection included numerous items featuring Marilyn Monroe and her former baseball star husband Joe DiMaggio, items that were symbolic of his larger collection bonding sporting and non-sporting items in a vast single collection.
