New York Yankees legend Babe Ruth’s baseball glove sold for $1.53 million at an auction over the weekend.
The price is the highest ever paid for a glove, it shatters the previous record of $387,500 paid for a baseball glove. That one was a game-worn Lou Gehrig glove sold in 1999.
The glove was sold at the 19th Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory auction. The glove was originally given by Ruth to St. Louis Browns third baseman Jimmy Austin. His niece found it in a storage box. They believe the glove was in that box for 30 years.
The new owner wishes to remain anonymous.

You know how Coors Light promotes how cold your beer is when the mountains turn blue?
But now they’re expanding that technology, with nail polish that changes colour when your Coors Light is cold enough. Classy.
The idea is that the colour-changing label doesn’t help when you’re drinking from a pint glass. So now, you’ll know if it’s cold enough by gripping the beer and looking at your fingernails.
Coors Light Chill Polish is available for $7 per bottle at Shop.CoorsLight.com. They’ll be releasing it in batches through the end of the year.
