In 2012 the highest price for any category of memorabilia (sports) was realised by Babe Ruth’s jersey which sold for £2.79m ($4.4m) by SCP auctions. This exceeded Dr. James Naismith’s founding rules of basketball which fetched $4.3m at Christie’s New York.
A recent appreciation for highly coveted items of memorabilia, have also been seen by collectors – like Muhammad Ali’s boxing gloves which sold for $1.1m and Kobe Bryant’s championship NBA ring which sold for $286,500.
The 1970 yellow Brazil shirt worn and signed by Pelé at the World Cup received the highest auction result for a football jersey at £157,750 at Christie’s in March 2002, which of course amazed the football fans.
