This listing is for two rare George Brett collectibles recently donated to our charity. The first item is an official Rawlings major league baseball with a certified-authentic George Brett autograph. The unique, tamper-proof hologram on the ball certifies authenticity via MLB (JC 228543). This autographed ball was actually donated directly to our charity by the Community Relations & Royals Charities office of the Kansas City Royals. Written documentation of this will be provided to the buyer. A plastic display cube is included with this ball. Identical George Brett balls sell for $300 at mlb.com and other sites.
The second item is a large, vintage wool blend pennant commemorating George Brett's induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999. This premier-quality pennant is from Winning Streak Sports, Inc. of Olathe, Kansas, and is a blend of 70% wool and 30% acrylic, RN #91218. This is not your ordinary screen-printed pennant. This pennant is very large and is made of heavy wool felt, precisely stitched. All letters and figures are outlined and accented with fine embroidery. (Although it is difficult to see in the photos, the wide end of the pennant is bordered in a strip of blue felt. This is a rare, limited edition pennant, #202 of 500, of the second series. Genuine Major League Merchandise.
Here are just a few reasons why George Brett is considered one of the elite baseball players of all time:
George Brett retired with 3154 hits, 317 homeruns, and a .305 batting average. Only three other major leaguers have achieved such a feat ... Henry Aaron, Willie Mays, and Stan Musial. George's 3154 hits are the most by any third baseman in Major League history. In 1980, George hit .390, the highest batting average since Ted Williams hit .406 in 1941. George Brett spent his entire 21-year career with the Kansas City Royals, played in two World Series, and batted .375 in both of them. He is one of only seven members of the 20-20-20 club, having hit 20 or more doubles, triples, and homeruns in a single season (1980). And he is the only player in major league history to win batting titles in three different decades!
The baseball is a Rawlings official game ball, regulation size. The pennant is a HUGE 40.5" long by 17" wide.
Although these are donated items, they are both new. The ball is an official game ball that has never been played with. It was donated to us as new property of the Kansas City Royals. The pennant is new-old-stock, very possibly a salesman's sample, with the cardboard label still attached. It should be mentioned that the back of the pennant has 3 small, very faint yellow spots, shown on the last photo. They are not evident from the front. Please see the photos for details.
