LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A baseball glove worn by Babe Ruth during his glory days with the New York Yankees has sold for more than $1.5 million at the Louisville Slugger Museum auction & Factory Saturday.

The successful bidder has not been identified.

Hunt Auctions said the price of $1,527,500 was the highest ever paid for a glove.

The company said the glove dates back to Bambino’s days with the 1927 Yankees, considered one of the greatest teams in history. Hunt Auctions said Ruth gave the glove to Jimmy Austin, a longtime infielder with the St. Louis Browns, and the glove remained with Austin’s family.
