Items and collectibles from more than just the current 30 Major League teams are up for bids at MLB All-Star FanFest.

Longtime Washington baseball fans can bid on items from the days of the Washington Senators, the precursor to the Washington Nationals that operated as an MLB club from 1901 to 1971.

On one end of the pricing spectrum, a 1924 Senators team photo — the year the team won the World Series — had a high bid of $80 on Friday afternoon. But a 1924 World Series press pin already had a high bid of $887.

A 1961 Rollie Hemsley Senators home jersey was up to $741 on Friday afternoon.

A live auction is open for online pre-bidding until 10 p.m. on Sunday, July 15.



Other Senators memorabilia was on display at the collectors’ area at FanFest:

FanFest is being held from Friday through Tuesday at Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
