    1980's Don Denkinger Watch with Braille Gifted by Whitey Herzog from The Don Denkinger Collection. Most would hold a grudge forever when a blown call costs his team a World Series, but we give Whitey Herzog a salute for adding levity to the situation. This Seiko watch allows for the face to be opened so a blind person could tell what time it is. This was a tongue-in-cheek gift from Herzog and the Cardinals organization to Don Denkinger who infamously called Jorge Orta safe on an infield play which showed he was out by at least a half a step in Game Six of the 1985 World Series. The Royals rallied late to take control of the series. Game Seven was an 11-0 blowout. The watch is currently not in working order but we believe a battery would bring it back to life. A letter of provenance signed by Denkinger will attend and serve as provenance. The original storage box is included. Letter of provenance from Don Denkinger.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
