Babe Ruth Yankees Jersey Sells for Record $5.64M at Auction A Babe Ruth Yankees jersey sold for a record $5.64 million at auction on Saturday, breaking the previous mark of $4.4 million—which was the price tag for a game-worn 1920 Ruth jersey—according to Hunt Auctions. © MPI/Getty Images The jersey, which was grey with 'Yankees' across the chest, is believed to be from the 1928–30 period. The jersey is very rare because it is the only time in the franchise's history that the nickname was printed on the uniforms. It was one of more than 400 pieces of memorabilia up for auction, much of which was supplied by the late Hall of Famer's family.

Elvis’s imprint is all over it: The limo’s Tennessee license plate reads “1-Elvis,” and comes with a copy of the car’s original title application, with Elvis’s name on it.

But since Presley’s death in August 1977, the car has fallen into disrepair—dust covers the black exterior and interior. In 2014, the car was found in car collector James Petrozzini’s collection after Petrozzini died. As Mecum Auctions states, Petrozzini liked to use the limo to pick up his son and his friends from school while wearing a chauffeur’s hat and white gloves.

If you’re interested in bidding, Mecum Auctions recommends calling for an estimate. For comparison: In 2018 Presley’s 1971 Mercedes-Benz sold for $116,600.
