The Sultan of Swat. The Colossus of Clout. The Great Bambino. Babe Ruth’s name is synonymous with baseball to the degree that folks who have never actually watched a game still know who he was. That level of fame is hard to come by. And it explains why his New York Yankees road jersey, which is headed to the auction block courtesy of Hunt Auctions, is valued at over $4.5 million.

This authentic piece of baseball memorabilia comes from the 1928-1930 era. For those who are keeping score, that means it is entirely possible Babe Ruth wore it during the 1928 World Series or even when he hit his 500th home run. That being the case, it makes sense that it would go for a six-figure sum. Headed to auction on June 15th at Yankee Stadium in New York City, this jersey will sell alongside an entire collection of Ruth’s personal effects — including his cleats, a signed photo of Lou Gehrig inscribed to Babe Ruth, and a good deal more. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime dream event for baseball fanatics everywhere and anyone in attendance will be able to count themselves lucky.

Purchase: $4,500,000+
