Two pieces of Babe Ruth memorabilia sell for over 4 million

03 Juillet 2017

Two of the most prized items of Babe Ruth memorabilia - both owned by actor Charlie Sheen - sold for more than $2 million each at auction.

Ruth's 1927 World Series ring and an original copy of the agreement sending Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees were sold in a Lelands.com auction.

In 1993, Evans purchased one copy of the Ruth sale document for $25,000 and auctioned it off for $99,000. That copy was later sold in 2005 for $996,000, according to ESPN. Sheen wanted the other copy, so he convinced Evans to buy the other copy.

Sheen purchased the ring and the document from Josh Evans of Lelands in the early 1990s. Evans nabbed it for $150,000 and proceeded to sell it and the ring to Sheen for an undisclosed amount.

The ring fetched $2,093,927 in the auction.

The sale price for Ruth's World Series ring shattered the record for an athlete's championship ring at auction; Julius Erving's 1974 ABA championship ring previously held the record at $460,741 six years ago.

Sheen had told ESPN senior writer Darren Rovell earlier in the week that he made a decision to sell the Babe Ruth World Series ring and the sales document because after having owned the pieces for more than two decades he felt that "the time has come" to transfer them to another collector. Sheen said he would make a profit on both items, but was more interested in Lelands finding a buyer who would appreciate the memorabilia as much as he did.

Sheen, 51, is a Major League Baseball fan, who has starred in several baseball movies in the past.
