Nye and Company to auction property from the collection of Yankees legend Yogi Berra
Yogi Berra's Yankee baseball jacket.
BLOOMFIELD, NJ.- Nye and Company has the great honor to represent the sale of Major League Baseball’s iconic New York Yankees catcher, Yogi Berra. Nearly 300 lots will be posted to www.igavelauctions.com, starting July 23rd through August 6th. The Bloomfield, New Jersey-based auction house will be open for viewing from July 28th until the sale closes, including the weekend of August 2nd and 3rd, from Noon to 4pm each day.

With the recent sale of the late Hall-of-Famer’s home in neighboring Montclair, New Jersey, where he and his wife Carmen resided since 1956, furnishings and personal affects will be available to the highest bidder. Though there are baseball items included in the sale, the majority of the lots will be items from his spacious Georgian style home, built in 1902.

Room vignettes will showcase the important pieces that Berra and his wife collected over the years. “We are creating beautiful settings in which to show the pieces off to their best advantage,” said John Nye, founder of the eponymous auction house. According to Nye, buyers will find an historic Federal mahogany “butler’s desk” made in New York about 1825 and a mahogany American secretary desk of similar date. A George III mahogany pedestal desk, a Baroque style inlaid center table, and a pair of Italian walnut corner cupboards are among the notable pieces of formal furniture. A lovely set of Neo-classical style cast-iron garden furniture suite, embellished with swags, is one of three groups of outdoor seating.

Carmen Berra collected chicken and figural birds primarily in glass and wood by such notable makers as Royal Worcester, Baccarat, W. Goebel and Boehm. Several Georgian wall sconces, lamps and dinner services by venerable firms like Adams, Ducal Crownware, Lenox and Heinrich & Co. augment the table-top items.

Numerous commemorative pieces should attract bidders’ attention. For example, there are Yankees inscribed Tiffany ice buckets, a Hall of Fame tea pot, a portrait, team jacket, baseballs, a pair of #8-embroidered Yankee-logo-emblazoned golf shoes, a team suitcase and other pieces, including All-Star Game memorabilia. Each lot will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
