SCP Auctions is proud to announce that Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino’s grand slam home run ball from the 2013 American League Championship Series Game Six will be a part of its fall auction beginning Wednesday, Nov. 20 at SCPAuctions.com.  Nick Wood, a 23-year old University of Rhode Island student and lifelong Red Sox fan from Westborough, Mass., has enlisted the help of SCP Auctions to sell the ball that propelled Boston to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers to clinch a spot in the World Series.

“We are honored that Nick has chosen SCP Auctions to conduct the auction of his Shane Victorino grand slam baseball,” said SCP Auctions Vice President Dan Imler.  “We’re sure this will stand the test of time as one of the most iconic moments in Red Sox history and rank among the greatest post-season home runs in baseball history.”

Bidding opens Wednesday, Nov. 20 and concludes on Saturday, Dec. 7.

1) Someone should tell this kid that ball will get more valuable over time, especially if the Red Sox win the World Series. I get that he wants to pay off his student loans, but defer that shit and then capitalize, say, five years later, when your team is out of the playoffs and the city is starving for any positive sports item and will bid up its value.

2) We’re sure this will stand the test of time as one of the most iconic moments in Red Sox history and rank among the greatest post-season home runs in baseball history. That just made me throw up. His 2008 grand slam is now an asterisk or an also-ran in his career achievements. F.

  1. I throw up every time I hear the Boston fans sing “Every little thing is gonna be alright.” Shut up.

  2. Hate how those pompous boston fans sing that Bob Marley song. I have to change the channel everytime. BTW Shane is a HOF womanizer

  3. Who cares which slam is “greater” in his list of career achievements. Phillies don’t even come close to winning the WS in 08 without Victorino. The man was huge that postseason and helped bring us the first championship I’m old enough to actually enjoy.

  4. “five years later, when your team is out of the playoffs”

    You were a little off about the 2018 Red Sox!
