Don Larsen's perfect game jersey auctioned for $756K
By QMI Agency
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.
