The jersey worn by Colorado Rockies rookie shortstop Trevor Story at the team's home opener on April 8 against the San Diego Padres sold Sunday night for $12,250. The jersey, sold by Major League Baseball on its auction site, was worn by Story when he hit his fifth and sixth home runs of the season in just his fourth game. Story set the record for most consecutive games with a home run to start a career with four. That same stretch also tied the mark for best start to any season. His seven home runs through his team's first six games broke a record previously held by Larry Walker, Mike Schmidt and Willie Mays. The nine-day auction had 117 bids.
Ridiculous..but as @mchlyang said, you never know what's going to happen with Story's career.
But then again, there's so much risk involved.....and I can't believe Story didn't keep the jersey for himself!
It could turn out to be a great investment if Story becomes a baseball legend by the time he retires!
Thats insane!
