One memorabilia collector paid a pretty penny for a uniform once worn by Teddy Ballgame.
A 1954-55 game-worn Ted Williams Boston Red Sox uniform sold at a Lelands.com auction over the weekend for $137,274.79.
The jersey-and-pants set, which also bears the Splendid Splinter’s autograph, features a black memorial armband in honor of Harry “The Golden Greek” Agganis, a former Red Sox first baseman who tragically died during just his second pro season. Agganis also starred on the football field for Boston University, whose hockey arena now bears his name.
