1998 Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa Signed "All-Time Home Run Kings" Limited Edition Toy Truck
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $690.00
"All-Time Home Run Kings" limited edition toy truck (#51/2,500) manufactured by White Rose Collectibles, is signed in black marker by Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa (both "9") across the top, with added notations ("66 HR 98" and "70 HR 98"). The truck (12 inches in length) is housed in its original box (15 x 6.25 x 3.5 inches) which is also a very substantial display piece, featuring portraits of the two sluggers on the package design. We have seen many McGwire and Sosa items since 1998, but somehow we have missed this one. Presumably, the entire run of 2,500 was manufactured and sold, but this is the first we have run across of this unusual and extremely high quality modern collectable, which has many of the qualities we associate with great collectibles of durable value from long ago. The fact that both stars, each with a significant notation referencing the year and their home run total, have signed it adds another very significant dimension of interest to this example. (Note: This limited edition toy was not issued signed). An ASI and OnLine Authentics.com stickers are affixed to the top of the truck. The toy truck grades Nr/Mt-Mt and the display box is in Ex-Mt condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $690.00
