Charlie Sheen is the self-proclaimed “rockstar from Mars” who is worth more than $100 million for his numerous roles on TV and in movies. But now, this tiger blood aficionado has just got a whole lot richer by auctioning off extremely valuable Babe Ruth memorabilia online.
Sheen sold two key piece of bambino nostalgia: Babe’s 1927 World Series ring and the 1919 contract which drafted Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees. That last piece of history put a longtime hex on the Boston team. The Red Sox wouldn’t see another World Series win until 2004.
Mr. Winning put both pieces of Ruth memorabilia up for auction on Lelands.com Invitational Auction. The starting bid was $100,000. Guess how much everything sold for…
How much $$ did Charlie get?
Sheen sold the ring for an amazing $2,093,927. The tiger blood king sold the “Curse of the Bambino” contract for an incredible $2,303,320. That’s a lot of f*cking money, folks! Hopefully, Charlie will be responsible with his earnings this time.
“I’ve enjoyed these incredible items for more than two decades and the time has come,” said Sheen. “Whatever price it brings is gravy.” Sheen called the World Series ring “the greatest thing you can own from the greatest player in the greatest year.” That’s a lot of gravy.
Sheen is making the people at Lelands.com very happy with his Big Bambino business.
“These record-breaking prices show once again that Babe Ruth dominates the baseball auction world the same way he did the game,” Lelands founder and chairman Josh Evans said.
Just to think that Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees for $100,000. And that was a much bigger sh*t ton of money back then when compared to 100 Gs now-adays. Maybe not as much as Sheen’s sh*t ton, but you get the picture.
And here’s the receipt:
