Aaron Judge‘s 62nd home run ball could be yours — the record-setting baseball is about to hit the auction block — after the fan who caught the historic piece of memorabilia turned down a whopping $3 million offer!
The ball will soon be on the block at Goldin Auctions … one of the most prominent online sports sellers in the world.
As we previously reported, Cory Youmans caught the baseball on October 4th … while he was seated in the outfield for the Yankees vs. Rangers game in Texas. The Yanks tried to convince the fan to give up the ball that night, but the fan refused to part ways with it.
Of course, Judge set the NY Yankees and American League single-season home run record this season … topping the 61 HR mark set by former A.L. MVP and Yanks star, Roger Maris, in 1961.
If the baseball is to set the record, it’ll need to sell for at least $3,005,001 … in order to surpass the sale price of Mark McGwire‘s 70th home run (the slugger played in the National League), which he smashed during his historic 1998 season in which he went toe-to-toe with Sammy Sosa.
Will Judge’s record-breaking ball now break another record?! Stay tuned!
