Piedmont Triad’s Worthridge Auctions & Retail Presents The Dick Williams Collection and The Jim Fregosi Collection
Greensboro, NC: May, 2016
A Philadelphia Phillies 1993 National League Championship ring belonging to legendary shortstop Jim Fregosi is currently being auctioned at Worthridge Auctions and Retail. We are proud to offer the public a variety of items including awards, equipment, and autographs from his Philadelphia career as well as his time with the Los Angles Angels. Fregosi was one of the last members of the “original” LA Angels to retire after being sidelined by several injuries, at which time he began his career as their manager.
Also at auction are many awards, autographs, and equipment items belonging to Dick Williams. These span his career from his time with the Red Sox and the Oakland A’s. Williams became manager of the Red Sox after they had several losing seasons and plummeting attendance, and he famously vowed to “win more ballgames than we lose.” Although they lost the 1967 World Series, Williams was named Major League Manager of the Year by The Sporting News for the vast improvement he imposed on his team.
Worthridge is also proud to include hundreds of autographed sports memorabilia items in this auction, which features more than 600 lots. Bidding will begun on Tuesday, May 3 at 10:00 pm eastern time and continue until Tuesday, May 24 at 10:00 pm eastern time. To be eligible for extended bidding, final bids must be submitted before the deadline at 10:00 pm eastern time on May 24th.
