Historic Babe Ruth Ball Going to Auction

An amazing piece of baseball history.

A ball that may be the first of many that Babe Ruth smashed out of Yankee Stadium is going up for auction. The ball itself is signed and dated by the Babe.

This isn't the first Ruth artifact that's gone to auction this year. Like this pocket watch, it seems that anything the Sultan of Swat touched is now worth its weight in gold.
