Another Crazy Baseball Memorabile Sale

In case you were wondering what the ad on the left...

was referring to, it's this...

...a one-of-a-kind Upper Deck piece featuring authentic signatures of Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Rogers Hornsby, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Lou Gehrig, Roy Campanella, Pie Traynor and Cy Young.

The "$1,100,001" references the price the seller hoped to reach, beating the $1,100,000 paid for a Honus Wagner T-206 tobacco card.

He fell a little short—although the winning bid of $62,100 ain't too shabby.
