A circa 1920 New York Yankees road jersey worn by Babe Ruth might fetch seven figures when it hits the auction block thorough SCP Auctions on April 30.
“This is simply the finest sports artifact we’ve handled in our 30-year history,” said SCP Auctions President David Kohler. “It has it all. You would be hard pressed to dream up a more desirable baseball artifact. The historical impact of Ruth’s emergence in the Big Apple in the early 1920s, combined with the jersey’s superb original condition, makes this a sports treasure of the highest order.”
It’s the earliest known gamer for The Bambino, and the bidding through the Laguna Niguel, Calif.-based company will close on May 19.
