Another iconic piece of baseball memorabilia will be made available on the auction circuit this fall.
Citing a need to help pay for his grandchildren’s college education, Don Larsen said he will make the Yankees jersey he wore during his perfect game in the 1956 World Series available in an auction conducted by Steiner Sports.
The auction will take place this fall, running form Oct. 8 and ending Dec. 2.
“I really don’t know what it’s worth,” Larsen said in a New York Times article. “But what I do know is that in terms of historic importance, my uniform is part of one of the greatest moments in the history of sports. I have thought about that perfect game more than once a day, every day of my life since the day I threw it.”
SCD will have more details as they become available.
