Babe Ruth’s old shirt sold for four and a half million dollars this weekend. That means it made more money than you or I will over the courses of our lifetimes (unless, of course, you're Mark Zuckerberg).
Babe Ruth’s old shirt, which hasn’t gone anywhere or done anything for 91 years, made four and a half million dollars Saturday. I made nothing. "Okay," I hear you saying. "But you're not a baseball player." True. So, for comparison, how about this: Alex Rodriguez made $209,700 last Saturday. Babe Ruth's shirt kicked his ass.
Ruth died just after World War Two. The Babe's zombie shirt, undead, has risen from the grave and cashed a check. The previous all time price for a piece of some dead guy’s sports belongings was 4.3 million for James Naismith’s original hand written rules of basketball, the game he invented.
