Jackie Robinson’s used All-Star Game bat sells for $1.08 million
(CNN) – Baseball legend Jackie Robinson’s All-Star Game bat sold for $1 million in an auction Saturday.
Goldin Auctions announced the sale of the 1949 bat, which came directly from Rachel Robinson, Jackie Robinson’s widow.
While it is rare for a baseball bat to fetch more than $1 million, the sale was not an all-time record.
That record belongs to the bat Babe Ruth used to hit his first home run for the Yankees, which sold for $1.2 million.
The single-most expensive piece of Jackie Robinson memorabilia is a game-worn Brooklyn Dodgers Jersey. His famous number 42 Jersey sold for more than $4.2 million last year.
