Contract sending Babe Ruth from Red Sox to Yankees up for auction

The Red Sox get another gentle reminder of one of their worst blunders in franchise history this week when the contract sending Babe Ruth from Boston to the Yankees goes up for auction.The pricele s artifact, one of the most scared in baseball,is being sold by auctioneer copy once owned by Red Sox owner Harry Frazee last sold for $ Marcell Ozuna Jersey 996,000 in 2005.”This is the Curse of the Bambino,” Lelands’ Josh Evans said, via “It transcends everything. It changed America.”Boston ended the “Curse of Bambino” in 2004 with a sweep of the Cardinals. The Red Sox had previously won a World Series in 1918.After the 1919 season, Frazeesold Ruth to the Yankees for $100,000. Frazee also received a $300,000 loan from the Yankees to seal the deal. The loan was secured using a mortgage on Fenway Park, meaning if Frazee defaulted, the Yankees would have owned the Red Sox’s ballpark as well.With the Ruth contract back on the market, it will be interesting to see if it’s a Yankees supporter or a Red Sox supporter who buys it.
