This is your chance to own a piece of EARLY 20th century Red Sox history!  The original contract sending Babe Ruth from Boston to New York is up for auction!

According to CBS Sports, the 1919 contract is being auctioned by Lelands.

As of 9 AM this morning (Wednesday, May 24th) the bid was at just over $161,000.  Also up for auction, although I don't think any respectable Red Sox fan would want it, is Ruth's 1927 Yankees World Series ring.

Even though it marked the beginning of the over 8 decades long "curse", the contract is still a piece of Red Sox history.  If I had a couple extra 100 grand kicking around, I'd bid on it.
