Babe Ruth Sets More Records With $5 Million Sale of Jersey, Cap

Babe Ruth holds two more records as a shirt and a cap he wore in baseball games sold for almost $5 million yesterday.

A New York Yankees jersey, the earliest known one to have been worn by Ruth in a game, fetched $4.42 million at auction, a record for an item of sports memorabilia. A cap worn by him during the early 1930s commanded a winning bid of $537,278.
