A young Boston Red Sox star’s first jersey is on the auction block.
That star is Andrew Benintendi and it’s a jersey worn and MLB-authenticated for his MLB debut on Aug. 2, 2016. Not only that, it’s also authenticated to a second game later that month by MLB and is believed to have been worn for his first career home run, too.
A selection of colorful and nickname-adorned game-used jerseys from MLB Players Weekend are winding down on the auction block via MLB Auctions and you totally won’t be surprised to see who’s leading the way.
All Rise … it’s New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge.
Mickey Mantle dominated the auction block on Saturday night in Dallas as Heritage Auctions‘ Platinum Night sports sale was topped by a pair of Mantles with very different attributes.
Yet both had very high demand.
Both items you see here — one a PSA 8 copy of his 1952 Topps card and the other being Mantle’s New York Yankees road jersey worn when he hit his 535th career home run on Sept. 19, 1968 — are six-figure items.
One went for $660,000 with a buyer’s premium while the other went for $486,000 and with that pair of facts we have these two questions for you.
Spoiler: Highlight the text after this on this line to learn more. The card sold for more.

Jerseys from the Jacksonville Jaguars‘ Bold Rush game where the team wore striking gold uniforms are on the auction block benefitting charity with the sales ending later this weekend.
All proceeds from the jerseys worn during the team’s 19-13 win over the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 19 will go to the the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation, which “supports programs benefiting economically and socially disadvantaged youth, families and other NFL and team charitable initiatives.”
