Babe Ruth's Yankees jersey sells for record $4.4m
New York, May 21 (ANI): A baseball jersey worn by Babe Ruth has been sold for more than 4.4 million dollars at an auction, which is a record for any item of sports memorabilia.
SCP Auctions said that the circa 1920 New York Yankees uniform top is the earliest known jersey worn by "The Bambino" and it fetched 4,415,658 dollars at the company's April auction, which ended Sunday, the New York Post reported.
The auction house said that price broke the previous record of $,338,500 dollars set in 2010 for James Naismith's founding rules of basketball.
Lelands.com claimed that it submitted the winning bid for Ruth's jersey, which had been displayed for years at The Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum in Baltimore.
Suzan French, a spokeswoman for Lelands.com, said the company plans to sell the jersey privately rather than re-auction it. (ANI)
