Historic and exceedingly rare road jersey issued between 1928 and 1930 worn by baseball legend, Babe Ruth has sold for $5,640,000, which makes it the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia on earth to date.
Babe Ruth Yankees uniforms are incredibly rare with just six of distinction known to exist. In addition to its overall rarity, 1928-1930 was the only time in history the New York American League franchise displayed the "Yankees" nickname on its jerseys making this item one of the rarest pieces of sports memorabilia in the world.
Babe Ruth was a one of those humans our history had the privilege of experiencing. To quote Benny Rodriguez in The Sandlot, "People say he was less than a god but more than a man." We all know the accolades of this baseball icon, and his sports memorabilia and trading cards continue to pave the way for new records. The value of this stuff only goes in one direction.
