Babe Ruth's World Series watch, Shoeless Joe's bat fetch six figures at auction
We noted a few weeks ago that Babe Ruth's 1923 World Series pocket watch might sell for three quarters of a million dollars an auction this month. On Saturday, it came close.
But the most popular baseball-themed item at the auction was Shoeless Joe Jackson's 1911 game-used bat, fetching a cool $956,000. Jackson delivered 233 hits and a .408/.468/.590 slash line that year for the Cleveland Naps.
