That's right, Major League Baseball's auction site is currently selling small glass jars of Game 7 dirt from Dodger Stadium. The dirt comes directly from the field where the Astros won their first World Series and is selling for $49.99 per jar.

In case that isn't enough for Astros fans, the memorabilia dirt could pair nicely with a World Series first base used during the first two innings of Game 7. The base will go quickly as the auction is set to close on Nov. 13.

Within an hour of being on the market, bids were already over the $600 mark.
