Shirt off Babe Ruth's back sells for a record $4.4 million5/20/2012
It might be more authentic with a mustard stain from one of the hot dogs he famously noshed between innings, but Babe Ruth's circa-1920 Yankees road jersey was real enough to fetch a record $4,415,658 at auction when bidding closed Sunday. For you comparison shoppers, that's about $3.5 million more than the Babe earned in his 22-year playing career, and dwarfs even the $1.65 million price tag on the suburban Boston home where Ruth lived during his days with the Yankees -- which, you know, you can actually live in. Pro tip for the winning bidder: Be sure to wash the jersey on the "delicate" setting.
If you could own any athlete's jersey, whose would it be?
