There are a lot of game-worn jerseys out there on the memorabilia market. Kind of hit and miss if you’re interested in exactly where that jersey has been as opposed to who wore it when. I mean, sure, it’s Mickey Mantle’s jersey, but maybe he wore it on a Sunday he was out of the lineup with a hangover?
Wait, that would make it more awesome, not less. But you know what I mean. Anyway, you won’t have a problem if you’re interested in this one:
The baseball jersey worn by New York Yankees legend Don Larsen when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history will soon be available for auction.
Steiner Sports Memorabilia is conducting the auction in the fall. They say a bidding war is expected for the one-of-a-kind jersey. In May, a jersey worn by Babe Ruth sold for more than $4.4 million.
That’s a serious piece of memorabilia. One of the most famous games ever. Not many like that come on the market, I’d reckon.
