SCP Auctions’ most recent memorabilia and sports card auction closed on Saturday with some significant sales. Most notably, the bat Babe Ruth said he used to hit his 500th home run sold for just over $1 million.
The Bambino’s bat was expected to be a popular item and it was. Because of its value, it drew only a total of seven bids with most being priced out. But the final price of $1,000,800 far exceeded the opening $150,000 bid amount. The winning bidder’s name wasn’t released.
