Baseball memorabilia can be a hot item at auctions, so as the days go by and Aaron Judge’s chase to capture (and eventually pass) Roger Maris’ MLS record all along, the attention of the lucky fan will end up with the prized ball.
In the end, the souvenir didn’t go to anyone.
The judge’s historic blast—hit during the seventh inning of Wednesday night’s game against the Blue Jays—fell inches from the front row of the left field at Rogers Center, prompting plenty of stunning reactions from the nearby fans.
So close, but so far away.
Earlier today, the sports betting site Shark odds He put an upper/lower cap on the final auction price of the Judge’s 62nd ball, which has obviously not yet been hit, at $2.5 million. The number 61 ball certainly wouldn’t have fetched a great price, but it was definitely worth a pretty penny for any fan who was lucky enough to have it.
However, as they say, the misery of one man is the wealth of another. The Yankees will head home Friday to face the Orioles, as the judge will look to pass the Maris and become the only AL record holder in a single season. Maybe next time the bulls will clear up.
