On October 8, 1956, a relatively unknown New York NY Yankees pitcher by the name of Don Larsen etched his name into baseball immortality by throwing the only perfect game in World Series history. It took him just a little over two hours to through 97 pitches and strikeout seven Brooklyn Dodgers to win Game 5 of the 1956 World Series. The Yankees, ended up winning in seven games.
After 56 years, Larsen has decided to auction off the uniform he wore on that historic day to help pay for his grand children's college education. Steiner Sports is hosting the auction which is scheduled to run through December 2nd. The uniform is expected to sell between $1 - $2 million.
Larsen's uniform joins a very notable list of sports memorabilia that has been sold this year. Check out these items:
