Larson to auction WS perfect game uniformLITTLE FALLS, N.J. (AP) - Don Larsen has two grandchildren, one in college and the other a freshman in high school. He wants to make sure they're taken care of. He wants to make sure they complete their educations.
So, to help that cause, the former Yankee has decided to auction off the uniform he wore 56 years ago Monday, when he authored a perfect game in the World Series.
On the anniversary of Larsen's greatest day as a pitcher, Steiner Sports Memorabilia announced it will auction off the uniform that the 82-year old Larsen wore.
A Babe Ruth jersey went for $4.4 million last year, so Steiner anticipates such a historic relic to draw at least seven figures.
