ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – One of the best parts of eating at baseball player-turned-broadcaster Mike Shannon’s now-closed downtown restaurant was checking out all of the St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia on display.
Now, you can own some of those items by taking part in an auction that runs through late October.
Shannon says he’s auctioning off most of the items that were on display at his downtown restaurant. “Just about everything that was in the restaurant downtown that will go on sale. So some of the folks that have some memories of some things there that they might like will have a chance to bid on them and acquire them.”
Top-priced items include a baseball signed by Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris as well as the jersey Stan Musial wore during his final game, which is going for a minimum of $10,000.
Other items on the auction block include Shannon’s own Hall of Fame plaque, signed home run balls from the 1964 World Series, a baseball signed by Bob Forsch that was part of his 1978 no-hitter streak and bats signed by Mark McGwire.
Bids on these items and more begin today and end on October 28.
