The bat Kirk Gibson used to hit his walk-off home run in game one of the 1988 world series has two days left to go until “extended bidding” and now sits at a pretty $139,015.
In the world of baseball bat memorabilia, it’s fetching a pretty decent sum, but is still off by a factor of 10 when compared to the world’s most expensive bat: the bat Babe Ruth used to hit his first home run at Yankee Stadium. ($1.3 million)
The shirt Kirk Gibson was wearing while he hit the home run is currently at $129,690, while his road uniform for the 1988 world series seems a relative bargain at $6,050.
Personally, I think having a world series trophy sitting on the mantle would be pretty cool.
