Tony Romo CBS Debut, Indy 500 Craziness & Bre Tiesi Still On Vacation

You want to buy Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring and his 1919 contract?

Here’s your chance because both just went up for an auction that runs through June 30th. It’ll cost you, but we’re talking 2 of the rarest pieces of memorabilia in sports history: The five-page contract is the Yankees’ copy that Barry Halper once purchased from former owner Jacob Ruppert’s estate. It is considered the most important document in sports history. Ruth’s ring, which is for the first of four titles he won with the Yankees, could fetch the highest price of all the items. It also started at $100,000 and had a current bid of $313,842. That season Ruth had one of the greatest years in baseball history with a .356 batting average, 60 home runs and 156 RBIs. He went 6 for 15 in the World Series sweep against the Pittsburgh Pirates, with two home runs and seven RBIs. If you’ve got cash to blow, get in on this before some celebrity snatches them up.
