Aaron Judgeis on the cusp of making history — just a couple blasts away from setting both Yankees and American League home run records — and we’re told those baseballs will be worth a fortune at auction!
The 30-year-old NYY slugger leads all MLB with 60 dingers, and no one else is even close (Yordan Alvarez has 39 HR’s). More importantly, the 6’7″ centerfielder is knocking on history’s door …and the baseballs might as well be flying lottery tickets, according to David Kohler from SCP Auctions.
On Tuesday night, Judge tied Babe Ruth‘s all-time single-season high (60 HR’s) — which the Bambino set in 1927 — a ball that Kohler estimates to be worth between $100-150K!
The next home run’s big — number 61 — it’ll tie the all-time Yankees and AL record … set by Roger Maris in, you guessed it, 1961.
That ball, according to Kohler, will be worth between $200-250K!
Same deal with Sammy Sosa (66) and Mark McGwire (70) in 1998. Many credit the home run race with bringing fans back to baseball after the strike. However, Sosa and McGwire are both alleged steroid users.
SCP has auctioned off some of the most desirable home run baseballs ever hit … including Bonds’ all-time record-setting 756th HR ball ($752,467), the 755th ball ($186,750) that tied the legendary Hank Aaron, and the 762nd HR ball ($362,000), the all-time career record.
