    The gloves that Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) wore in his first world heavyweight championship win, against Sonny Liston, have auctioned with outstanding results.

    They sold for $836,500 at Heritage Auctions' February 22-23 Sports Collectibles Platinum Night Auction in New York.

    Muhammad ALi SOnny Liston Gloves record auction
    The gloves achieved a 116.7% increase in value in less than two years

     

    Consigned from Ali's hall of fame trainer Angelo Dundee's estate, the gloves achieved a 116.7% increase on the $385,848 paid for the pair at auction in 2012.

    While an impressive sum, the sale has not broken the boxing memorabilia world record.

    UFC fighter Lorenzo Fertitta is reported to have paid $1.1m for the gloves worn by Ali during his 1965 title fight against Floyd Patterson, at Ali's 70th birthday gala in February 2012.

    Ali, then known by his birth name Cassius Clay, was a relative newcomer at the time of his 1964 bout in Miami Beach, while Liston had comfortably secured the world heavyweight championship as his own with two decisive wins against Paterson.

    Nonetheless, the Louisville Lip continued his characteristic goading of Liston, and tensions were high as fight night approached, with the room erupting into a brawl as the Big Bear charged at the self-proclaimed Champ. All but three of the 46 writers who were ringside on the night predicted a knockout for Liston.


    The gloves are inscribed by Angelo Dundee, and were once part of the estate of the legendary trainer

     

    Yet Ali's famous self-belief and energy propelled him to victory, despite begging Angelo Dundee to cut his gloves off due to burning in his eyes (the cause of much controversy).

    As the seventh round was about to get underway, Liston told his corner men "that's it" - becoming the first champion to quit on his stool since 1919.

    The gloves are inscribed in Dundee's hand: "Clay Feb. 25 KO Liston", along with Dundee's autograph on the interior wrist.

    Also selling at Heritage was the only game used bat from Shoeless Joe Jackson's Major League career and Babe Ruth's Yankees pocket watch..

    Muhammad Ali's first championship win propelled him into the spotlight - we are currently selling this fantastic signed photograph of his meeting with the Beatles.

  • Rob Heffernan wins WAC gold medal - Congratulations

    Posted on August 16, 2013 by Selby


    Congratulations to Cork athlete Rob Heffernan on his WAC gold medal following his success in the 50 km event held in Moscow

    Sports autographs are always in demand especially when they belong  to a gold medallist

    Rob 35, who is now Ireland’s 3rd all-time WAC gold medallist won easily in 3.37 which was a record timing for this year, Mikhail Ryzhov took silver, having never put in a serious challenge to the winner

    The last time Ireland won a gold medal at the World championships  was back in 1995 when Sonia O’ Sullivan took the 5.000 Metre event in Gothenberg so convincingly .

    Fellow Irishman Brendan Boyce finished in 25 place putting in a personal best 3.54

    The newly appointed Irish president Michael D Higgins joined Enda Kenny in congratulating Rob on his success

    The Taoiseach said: “This gold medal shows his tremendous strength of character and determination to grow stronger from each near miss.”

    Sports minister Leo Varadkar said Heffernan turned in an “outstanding performance”

    "It's a huge achievement for Rob," he said.

    "After so many years competing at the very top level of international race walking, it is a just and most deserved reward for all his hard work and determination."

    Michael Phelps Olympic Memorabilia

    What a tremendous performance by Michael Phelps!!

    Reclaiming the lead with his trademark butterfly stroke, Phelps won the 18th gold of an unparalleled career when he helped the U.S. win the 4x100-M, medley relay last Saturday night

    Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time. Twenty-two medals. Eighteen of those gold. He can now retire with twice as many golds as any other Olympian

    During  London Olympics 2012  we have noticed more and more requests for information about Olympic Memorabilia.

    One of the most popular events is Swimming, Relay, Freestyle, Backstroke, and Marathon  are all great viewing and many people now require a more permanent memory of the Games, an item of Michael Phelps Olympic Memorabilia,

    Of great interest is the prolific Gold Medallist Michael Phelps. By Olympic standards he is the most successful all round contestant ever, Swimming Memorabilia recognising his remarkable achievements are always sought after by Collectors and Fans alike.

     

    A little history

    Competition Swimming can be traced in England as having taken place in the early 1800s under the auspices of the National Swimming Council.

    1894 saw the formation of the International Olympic Committee, a decision was made to include four swimming events 100m freestyle,1200m, 500m and a special 100m event for seafarers.

    Olympic Swimming Memorabilia from these early days is very rare and therefore highly collectable I do not personally have any Collectables relating to this era. I would be delighted to hear from anyone who has items in their collection. Most of the original Memorabilia from these early events are housed at the International Swimming Hall of Fame Museum and Aquatic complex in Fort Lauderdale.

    Michael Phelps

    Michael Phelps was born in Maryland  USA  in 1985 he is the winner of 16 Olympic Medals -  6 Gold and 2 Bronze at Athens 2004 and 8 Gold whilst dominating the Beijing Olympicsin 2008. He is the winner of the most Gold Medals achieved in a single year overtaking legendary Mark Spitz’s collection of 7 won at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. He has been named swimmer of the year 6 times and American swimmer of the year 8 times.

    Competing in the 2008 Olympics at the Water Cube he won his Gold in the 100m /200m Butterfly: 4x100/4x200 freestyle relay: 4x100 Medley Relay. He achieved Silver in the 200m Freestyle.

    Two years later in the Pan Pacific Championship: Gold in the 100mbutterfly, 200m butterfly, 4x100/ 4x200 freestyle relay and the 4x100 medley relay.

    Bob Bowman the Olympic Champions Coach renowned for his strong opinions is an accomplished concert pianist with a degree in phycology, his analytical approach to coaching/mentoring assisted Michael in his unprecedented Olympic record of 8 Gold in a single year.

    Bob legendary for his coaching abilities is regarded by many as the most successful coach ever. What a combination???

    USA Swimming have appointed Bob as official coach for the 2012 Olympics in London which is sure to lead to more Gold more Records and more Memorabilia.

    With the 2012 London Olympics starting in just 5 months, Bowman looks set to continue his success with Michael Phelps and other up and coming athletes.

    Swimming is something of a family event; Michael’s siblings are also Champion Swimmers.  His sister Hilary represented the University of Richmond whilst Whitney took part in the in the 1996 Olympic Swimming Trials.

    Michael actively supports charities having set up his own Michael Phelps Foundation in 2008.

    Takashi Ono Olympic Memorabilia

    5 Gold Medals – Japanese Champion Gymnast – Olympic Collectibles from 1956 Melbourne, 1960 Rome, 1964 Tokyo are scarce and sought by Collectors.

    Takashi born in Noshiro Japan in 1931 is the holder of 5 Olympic Medals, 4 silver and 4 Bronze. His artistic Gymnastic achievements make Collectables from his historic events an important addition to any portfolio.

    Takashi was inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in 1998.

    It is important when purchasing Gymnastic Memorabilia to select the more significant events which the Athlete competed in, a signed item is so much more collectable when directly connected to a significant event.

    Photographic presentations, event worn attire, hand signed photos are just a few of the collectables currently available.

    Events which are specifically collectable are listed below:

    Helsinki 1952: Vault 1 Bronze.

    Melbourne 1956: Horizontal bar 1 Gold: All round, Horse, team 3 silver: Bars 1 Bronze.

    Rome 1960 Horizontal bar, Vault and Team 3 Gold: All round 1 Silver: Bars, Rings 2 Bronze.

    Tokyo 1964 Team, 1 Gold.

    Collectables are in demand from the World Championships events:

    1954 Rome.

    1958 Moscow.

    1962 Prague.

    Associated Memorabilia from the World Championships, tickets, passes, badges, participation medals, handbooks, posters, competitor information, stamps and trade cards are all collectable and appreciating in value.

    Always take care when purchasing Olympic Swimming Memorabilia online as there can be so many pitfalls and it is very much a case of buyer beware, I have written an article Rare autographs real or fake which should be of interest to the reader and may well save some money on your investment.

    Now is a good time to start collecting, interest has never been greater with London Olympics later this year.

  • Johnny Weismuller Olympic Swimming Memorabilia

    Posted on February 28, 2012 by Selby

     

    Johnny Weismuller Olympic Swimming Memorabilia

    5 Olympic Gold Medals – 52 US National Championships -67 World Records, Tarzan Movie Actor,  First to swim 100m Freestyle in under a minute.

    Johnny Weissmuller Olympic Memorabilia is a must for any serious collector. A man of 2 careers Swimming Champion and Hollywood Movie star, making some 12 Tarzan films 1932 – 1948.

    The London 2012 Games are coming round fast and the interest in Olympic Memorabilia is increasing daily, now is a good time to invest in Collectables not only associated with past Champions, but by predicting future Gold Medal winners and buying while the price is right, Collectables which are obtained while the Athlete is still relatively unknown can based on future success, it may be a great investment.

    Johnny (1904 – 1984) US Freestyle swimmer and actor was born in Timisoara Hungary, brought up in Pennsylvania his family relocated to Chicago where Johnny as a youngster contracted polio, he fought the illness bravely by practicing a regime of strenuous exercises which paid off for him and he eventually recovered to become a teenage member of the Illinois Athletic Club where he was coached by William Bacharach who was spoken of at the time as the best swimming coach in America.

    I have known so many instances of youngsters contracting polio to go on to become outstanding sportsmen and women; I feel it is the intense exercising carried out to recover from the illness that in the future gives them the strength, motivation and ability to train at the top level.

    Johnny soon developed his own unique style which he put to good effect when  he entered his first competitive swimming tournament the 1921 Amateur Athletic Union Outdoor Championship, winning the 50 yard and the 220 yard Freestyle. In 1922 Johnny broke the world record for the 150m backstroke and the 300m Freestyle, previously held by Duke Kahanamoku, a Hawaiian triple Gold Champion, 1912 Stockholm, 1920 Antwerp. The Duke ironically also, on retirement from swimming, successfully pursued an acting career.

    Johnny competed in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris winning Gold Medals in 100m/400m freestyle, 4x200 freestyle Relay. His efforts competing as a team member of the American Water Polo team achieved a 3rd place.

    In 1927 he set 100yd freestyle record which many regard as one of his greatest achievements, Olympic Memorabilia from this event would be of particular interest

    In 1928 at the Summer Olympics in Holland he won another 2 titles in the 400m Freestyle and the 4 x200m relay.

    He was inducted into the American Olympic Hall of Fame in 1983

     

    MEDAL RECORD

    2 Gold   1924 Paris 400m freestyle, 4 x 200m freestyle, Bronze team water polo

    2 Gold   1928 Holland 100m freestyle, 4 x 200m freestyle

    Movie Memorabilia

    Movie collectable re prints from the 12 successful Tarzan productions are relatively prolific as is material from Metro Goldwyn Mayer, MGM and the Jungle Jim Columbia productions. What the collector really should be seeking is authentic original material as listed below:

    Costumes, costume sketches, movie posters, props, wardrobe, scripts, postcards, theatre programmes, periodicals, magazines, original photos and stills, film company press books complete with images, credits, bio, plot info, original photos, autographs etc.

    Olympic Swimming Memorabila.

    Johnny Weissmuller authentic Collectables are rare and I would be interested in all items, though specifically from any of the following events:

    1922, 100 yds. freestyle at the Alameda pool California,

    1924 Paris Summer Olympics.

    1927 the 51 sec 100 yd. freestyle record at the University of Michigan Union Pool.

    1928 Netherlands Olympics.

    Collectable items that would interest me include: Committee reports, commemorative plaques and medals, posters, badges, press admittance, booklet rules and regulations lapel pins and original photographs/autographs.

    Collecting Olympic Memorabilia can be great fun and rewarding as either a hobby or small business

    Good luck with your collecting

    Let me know how you get on?

  • Nikolai Andrianov Olympic Memorabilia

    Posted on February 15, 2012 by Selby


    Nikolai Andrianov Olympic Memorabilia

    Nikolai Andrianov, 15 Olympic Medals, Russian Gymnast Champion, winner of 7 Gold, 5 Silver, 3 Bronze Medals, He is one of the most decorated Gymnasts of all time.

    Nikolai Andrianov Olympic Memorabilia does feature from time to time at various Auction Houses, I currently have a fine Presentation from the 1980 Moscow Olympics his last games, along with hand signed photographs, autographs and 1st day signed covers.

    To name but a few categories, popular collectables would include: original Sports cards, official signed caps, original pins, medals, trophies original programmes, event tickets, press passes, press photos, posters, rare proof coin sets and stamps, signed sports periodicals/media and apparel.

    Nikolai Andrianov (1952 – 2011) was born in Vladimir USSR he began training at 11 years of age at the Burevestnik Sports Society, under the auspices of Soviet Nikolai Tolkachyon, his first success came when he was selected for the Soviet National Team at the European Championships in 1971, where as a last minute competitor he took the event by storm winning 6 medals.

    Nikolai Andrianov made history as the male record holder of the most career medals in sport; he won a total of 15 Medals between 1972 – 1980. Added to this envious tally are the 12 Medals he holds for winning individual events. He is the only male gymnast to hold 3 medals achieved in the vault and to win 3 medals in the floor exercise.At the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich he achieved Gold in the Floor exercises, Silver in the Men’s Team all round competition and Bronze in the Vault.

    , (Michael Phelps USA swimmer surpassed Andrianov’s 15 medals with an amazing tally of 16 in 2008).

    The 1976 Olympics in Montreal saw Andrianov again in top form he achieved Gold in the Individual All Round, Floor Exercise, Vault and rings, 2 Silver and a Bronze. He was nominated Soviet Sportsman of the year.

    Back on home territory for the 1980 Olympics he clocked up Gold in the Team All Round and Vault, Silver in the Individual All Around, Floor Exercises and a Bronze on the Horizontal Bar.

    His Olympic Medal awards are listed below:

    Munich    1972        1 Gold, 1 Silver, 1 Bronze

    Montreal 1976        4 Gold, 2 Silver, 1 Bronze

    Moscow  1980        2 Gold, 2 Silver, 1 Bronze (Andrianov took the Olympic oath on behalf of the participants of the Moscow 1980 Games)

    Andrianov married a fellow Russian athlete in 1973, his wife Lyubov is the holder of 2 Team Gold medals won at the Olympic Games Mexico city 1968 and Munich in 1972, also winning Gold in 1970 World Championships in Ljubljana.

    Andrianov holds the record as the single Male Gymnast to hold 3 Medals (Vault) and 3 Medals (Floor Exercise)

    During the course of his career 1969 -1980 he competed at numerous events, Olympic Memorabilia is available from most occasions, Olympics, European Championships, USSR Championships and World Cups. Specifically from my point of view the Munich, Montreal and Moscow Olympics are most collectable but there is some excellent Memorabilia from the World Championships and European events.

    If items became available his wife Lyubov Memorabilia is worth considering it would sit well in any portfolio alongside Andrianov Collectables.

    Retiring after the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games Andrianov was appointed Coach to the Soviet National Junior team he became President of the Russian Gymnastics Federation eventually relocating to coach in Japan.

    Andrianov sadly died at the age of 58 in 2011 in his hometown Vladimir. He will be remembered for his charity involvement and work with youngsters both in the Soviet Union and Japan.

    His legacy will be seen to continue with the many successes of those that he coached.

  • Nadia Comaneci Olympic Memorabilia

    Posted on February 13, 2012 by Selby

     


    Nadia Comaneci Olympic Memorabilia

    Five Times Gold Medallist, Olympic Gymnast Sensation Nadia Comaneci is a favourite with Olympic Memorabilia Collectors.

    Her outstanding performance in the Montreal 1976 Olympics, where she won 3 Gold Medals, 1 silver and a Bronze, secured her place in the history books.  Four years later Nadia competed in the Moscow Games winning a further 2 Gold medals bringing her total to five Gold’s, three silver and one bronze. The 1976 Olympics is unique as the first Olympic Games to be held in Canada

    Nadia Comaneci Olympic Memorabilia is relatively prevalent from her International successes yet it would be nice to see more collectables made available from her early competitions from 1969 – 75.

    Nadia was born in Romania in 1961, she showed early promise as a gymnast becoming the youngest person to win the Romanian National Junior Championship as a nine year old in 1970, the following year she won the Junior national all-around title in her first International Competition at Ljubljana, Yugoslavia. At 11 years of age she won all around Gold in the Junior Friendship Tournament at the Druzhba Palace of Sports, Ukraine.

    By the time Nadia entered the European Championships in 1975 at Skien Norway she was already regarded as a formidable opponent as shown in her astonishing results listed below:

    All round          Gold

    Uneven bars     Gold

    Balance beam   Gold

    Vault                  Gold

    Floor                 Silver

    .

    Not surprisingly she was named as the UPI female athlete of year in 1975/76.

    1976 - It was the Summer Olympics in Montreal where Nadia became the first gymnast ever to receive a perfect 10.00 score from the judges; this remarkable achievement was recorded on the uneven bars. Amazingly Nadia scored a total of seven perfect tens at the Event.

    She was welcomed home to Romania as a National Hero, her picture appearing during the course of the same week on the cover page of Sport Illustrated, Time and Newsweek magazines bringing with it the celebrity that remains today.

    Her tally on this occasion is listed below:

    All round           Gold

    Uneven bars     Gold

    Balance beam Gold

    Team                Silver

    Floor                 Bronze

    Nadia Comaneci competed in the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games bringing her total up to 5 Gold Medals, 3 Silver Medals, 1 Bronze Medal.

    Nadia official retirement ceremony in 1984 took place in Bucharest among the many dignitaries present was the Chairman of the International Olympic committee; Nadia went on to become a popular coach to the Romanian National Team, eventually leaving for the USA where she was granted citizenship in 2001.

    .

    Nadia remains closely involved with sport through her work with the Media; she was inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in 1996 in Oklahoma USA, and has twice been the recipient of the International Olympic Committee most prestigious award the Olympic Order, in 1984 and 2004. She is the youngest and only person to receive this honour twice.

    In 2000 Nadia was nominated as an Athlete of the Century by the Laureus World Sport Academy, an enviable award administered by some of the greatest legends from sport. Laureus have great fundraising programmes and interactive projects that the public can join in, it is well worth following them on Facebook, to keep updated.

     

    Track and Field Athletic Memorabilia is always sought after especially if associated with an legendary sportsman/woman, the unique value of the individual item will appreciate dependant on the event or memorable occasion from which it originated, i.e. a Signed Presentation depicting Nadia Comaneci Olympic Memorabilia from the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal  may be more attractive to some collectors than the 1978 World Championships when Nadia despite winning the Beam title did not achieve the same level of success. Similarly the European All Title in 1977 is marked by the team controversially walking out in the finals; some collectors would pick up on this unique occurrence. Another example would be December, 1979; World Championships, Ft. Worth, when Nadia was recovering from illness and unable to demonstrate her usual prowess. What a recovery she made with her fantastic achievement in Moscow the following year.

    Memorabilia other than the pre 1975 which I mentioned earlier that I am particularly interested in includes the following:

    1975 Skien Norway European Championships

    1976 Montreal Olympic Games

    1977 Prague European Championships

    1978 Strasbourg World Championships

    1979 Fort Worth World Championships

    1979 Copenhagen European Championships

    1980 Moscow Olympics

    1981 Bucharest Summer Universiade

    Popular Olympic Memorabilia includes Autographs, Signed Presentations, Caps, Medals, Trophies, Photographs, Signed sports Periodicals and Media, Event tickets and Olympic programmes.

    Good luck with your collecting

    Let me know how you get on???
