Historic baseball memorabilia

Opening day in baseball is finally here, and while America's pastime returns for a fresh start, a top auction site is offering a glimpse back in time with historic, one-of-a-kind, baseball memorabilia from some of the game's greatest players of all time.

The auction is headlined by a wide array of items that includes a Derek Jeter rookie-season baseball bat, a Sandy Koufax game-worn cap, and a game-used ball signed by the entire 1927 World Series Championship New York Yankees.

"What we were able to get for the auction is incredibly unique and historic and in some cases the only one that exists in the world," said Ken Goldin, founder of Goldin Auctions. The auction starts Monday and runs through April 25.

Goldin said the 1960 Ted Williams Glove has garnered the most interest because it is the last glove Williams ever used as a player in his final 1960 season. It's expected to sell for more than $200,000.
