Former New York Yankees ace Don Larsen gave his two grandchildren the perfect gift.

A college education.

The present is a result of Larsen's 1956 World Series jersey fetching $756,000 at Steiner Sports’ memorabilia auction.

Larsen pitched the only perfect game in World Series history on Oct. 8, 1956. The Yankees won Game 5 against the Brooklyn Dodgers 2-0.

Larsen is one of 23 players in professional baseball’s modern era to accomplish such a feat, making the jersey seem like a bargain basement deal.
