Got A Couple Extra Hundred Grand? You Can Own A Piece Of Red Sox History From The Early 20th Century!
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!
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.
