Babe Ruth jersey auctions for $4.4 Mill!

@SportsBata ..nuff said

Babe Ruth’s first #Yankees jersey (dated 1920) sold for an amazing $4.4 Million at auction, yesterday! It is the most ever paid for one piece of sports memorabilia! It topped James Naismith’s original rules of basketball which was sold for $4.3 Million! The vintage gray cotton (road) jersey was so old, they didn’t even have numbers on the jersey yet! The only marking was “Ruth G.H.” (George Herman Ruth) stitched in the inside collar! Check out the jersey right above!

#NFL NY Giants’ Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring sold for $230K, yesterday! Giants’ Osi Umenyiora had a twitter bid to try to get the ring, depending on if 500K followers were collected in the effort!
