Lou Gehrig's iconic home run ball from 1928 World Series fetches $62, 617 at auction
Washington, July 11 (ANI): A baseball that New York Yankees slugger Lou Gehrig hit a home run with in the 1928 World Series has been sold for 62,617 dollars, an American auction house has said.
A Connecticut resident, Elizabeth Gott, said last week she decided to sell the ball on behalf of her 30-year-old son, Michael, so he could use the proceeds to pay off his medical school debt.
Hunt Auctions said the ball sold on Tuesday at the All-Star FanFest in Kansas City, the New York Post reports.
According to the paper, the baseball that Lou Gehrig hit into the Yankee Stadium bleachers was during game two of the 1928 World Series.
A newspaper account at the time quoted him calling it his most significant home run at the time.
The ball was caught by a relative named Buddy Kurland, who was in the bleachers at the old Yankee Stadium during Game 2 of the 1928 Series. (ANI)
