David Wells is an admitted Babe Ruth fan. So he went and bought Babe Ruth game-worn cap from the 1930s and wore it during a game with the Yankees in 1997. It’s now for sale in SCP Auctions’ current sale, and it’s past $230,000, with one more day of bidding.
The sports hobby is to get some major attention, as it has been announced that a 1920 Babe Ruth game-used jersey will hit the auction block in May. It is expected to bring more than $1 million.
SCP Auctions knew it had a good thing when offering the Julius Erving Collection, which included championship rings, trophies and game-used jerseys. The collection helped bring a total of $6.5 million.
