In honor of the start of baseball season, it only makes sense to talk about some of the most expensive baseball memorabilia ever sold. While you may never get your hands on a super-rare piece of memorabilia, that shouldn’t stop you from adding to your collection.
Here is a handful of items that are not only rare, but among the most valuable:
· Babe Ruth 1920 Jersey – $4+ million: You shouldn’t be surprised to find this item on the list. Not only is Ruth one of baseball’s all-time great players, but there is not much of his memorabilia to go around.
· Honus Wagner 1909 Baseball Card – $3.12 million: This has long been one of the most coveted baseball cards of all-time. You’re not likely to come across one of these, as they’re super rare, but even seeing one in person is a thrill of a lifetime.
· Mark McGwire’s 70th Home Run Ball – $3 million: Do you remember the summer when McGwire and Sammy Sosa were hitting homeruns left and right? Well, his 70th home run ball sold for three million. Talk about a great moment for the person who caught it!
If you’re interested in adding to your baseball memorabilia collection this season, take the time to visit some local estate sales. It’s a long shot that you’ll find anything as valuable as these three pieces, but you never know what’s around the next corner.
