Ruth uniform sells for $310k

SCP Auctions purchased a full Babe Ruth 1938 Brooklyn Dodgers road uniform for $310,500 at the recent Hunt Auctions sale at the Louisville Slugger Museum. The uniform, worn during Ruth’s last season in baseball when he served as a coach, was purchased on behalf of an SCP client. “This is a monumental piece of baseball memorabilia,” said David Kohler, president of SCP Auctions. “We bought it on behalf of a private individual building a great Ruth collection, so this was a good opportunity for him and it was a strong price in today’s economy. It was a certainly a record for a coach’s uniform.
