Sale Overview

Christie’s and Hunt Auctions are pleased to present a historic offering of baseball memorabilia in an online auction this December. Geddy Lee is universally known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the iconic rock and roll band Rush. Lee also enjoys a deep passion for the game of baseball. During the late 1970s, while on tour with Rush in the United States, Geddy’s pursuit to collect artifacts from the National Pastime was ignited and continued for over 40 years. The Geddy Lee Collection contains hundreds of autographed and historic milestone baseballs, spanning over three centuries of Major League Baseball and American history.

Highlights of Lee’s collection include single-signed baseballs of All- Star Major League Baseball players. Geddy’s interest in history fused with his passion for baseball most notably found within a stunning collection of U.S. Presidential autographed baseballs, including examples of ceremonial first pitch balls.

The Geddy Lee Collection is complemented by other small collections, including The Gladstone Collection of Baseball Art, which features first-class baseball related artwork and memorabilia. Bill Gladstone was the Chairman/Principal Owner of the Tri-City ValleyCats, and was elected to the board of directors for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 1991. Further highlights include a near complete collection of World Series programs dating from 1903 to present day.
