Luxury Collectibles: With baseball season beginning, March Madness just behind us and the NBA and NHL playoffs upcoming, it is the perfect time to show off some of Grey Flannel's high-end sports collectibles. This is the kind of stuff that makes sports lovers salivate. Autographed baseballs from Babe Ruth, Lou Gehring or Ty Cobb are up for sale. A pinstripe Yankee jersey worn in the 1950s by Mickey Mantle is available. You can bid on a baseball signed by Ted Williams or Stan Musial. Signed memorabilia from all major sports is available that dates back to the 1920s and earlier. Autographed balls and photos of world championship teams in baseball, basketball, hockey and football.

A current item up for auction belongs to legendary basketball star Wilt Chamberlain. Wilt's custom-made, street-legal racecar, the Chamberlain Searcher I is on the block at an opening bid of $25,000. The chassis, inspired by a Le Mans endurance car, weighs 3,000 pounds, has 476 horsepower at 6,750 rpms, and tops out at over 200 mph. The Chamberlain Searcher I's engine has less than 100 miles on it.

Sports collectibles of this caliber transform collections into miniature museums. These are toys for the boys who have everything and want more. Grey Flannel's items are guaranteed to put sports fans into a dreamlike trance. Just looking at this stuff is an incredible experience!
