A Jackie Robinson jersey, rated A8 by MEARS and dated to his 1951 season sold for $576,000 through Goldin Auctions early Sunday as the company wrapped up its Spring Premium Auction.
Eighteen bids were entered for the size 44 white flannel button-down flannel associated with one of the Hall of Famer’s finest offensive seasons when he batted .338 with 19 homers and 88 RBI.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Jackie Robinson Foundation.
In all, the auction generated more than $4.3 million.
Barry Bonds’ 762nd and last home run ball was offered for the second time since the controversial slugger established the current mark for career homers in 2007. It last sold in April 2008 for $376,612. Bonds has agreed to sign the ball for the winning bidder if desired.
Several items from the Alex Rodriguez 500th home run game in 2007 were offered in the auction including the ball and bat which netted $51,660 and $45,510, respectively. The home Yankees pinstripe uniform he wore that day went for $31,980.
