Freeman's Auctioneers to Hold Inaugural Auction of Pop Culture and Memorabilia
Another piece of New York nostalgia sure to bring Manhattanites to the Philadelphia sale room is an autographed baseball signed by seven of the 1927 New York Yankees, including Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, for $15,000-20,000.
PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman's announced its first sale of pop culture and memorabilia. Under the direction of Simeon Lipman - of Antiques Roadshow fame - the September 3rd auction will feature both contemporary and classic sports, music and entertainment memorabilia, alongside new emerging markets such as Punk and Hip Hop, Designer Toys, and Street Art. This variety of genres will appeal to a broad audience, including movie buffs, sports fans, and urban art enthusiasts alike.

A rare highlight of the auction is a remarkable two-page letter from Frank Sinatra to Chicago Daily News writer Mike Royko, written after Royko criticized Sinatra and his relationship with the Chicago police. The letter, with a pre-sale estimate of $10,000-15,000, was famously penned and copyrighted by Sinatra in May 1976.

Another piece of New York nostalgia sure to bring Manhattanites to the Philadelphia sale room is an autographed baseball signed by seven of the 1927 New York Yankees, including Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, for $15,000-20,000.

In addition to the letter and baseball, this auction will include more than 310 items from celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and the Beastie Boys, props and costumes from movies like Blade Runner and Terminator 2, and original graffiti art from underground artists. In total, there is something for any fan of current and past movie, music and sporting traditions.

The exhibition will be held Wednesday September 1st and Thursday September 2nd, from 10am-6pm. The auction will be held Friday September 3rd at 12pm.
