The gloves that Muhammad Ali wore in his Feb. 25, 1964 bout against Sonny Liston, when he was known as Cassius Clay and won the heavyweight championship for the first time, and the gloves that he wore in his first fight of his epic trilogy with Joe Frazier on March 8, 1971, each sold for $385,848 in bidding that concluded Saturday.

The original center court jump circle from UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion has netted $325,085 at auction. SCP Auctions said Sunday that it’s the most someone has ever paid for any piece of college basketball memorabilia.

The Great One is still setting records. Wayne Gretzky’s NHL rookie card earned $94,163 at an online sports memorabilia auction Sunday. SCP Auctions says that’s the highest price ever paid for a hockey card.

The bat Kirk Gibson used to hit his legendary home run in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series was sold for $575,912 at an auction that wrapped up early Sunday, according to KTLA News. Gibson’s jersey from the same game went for $303,277. The items were among the offerings at SCP Auctions’ October-November auction.

Last week, it was $8,040, and rising fast. When Game 1 of the NBA Finals tipped off in Boston on June 5, sports fans could, for the first time, place Internet bids on actual game-worn jerseys from both teams — while they were still being worn on court. And as of Tuesday, in the cyberspace face-off between Kevin and Kobe, the Lakers’ No. 24 was definitely the MVP — most valuable product.

The last baseball Barry Bonds hit out of the park sold for $376,612 on Saturday, the winning bid coming from a buyer who wanted to remain anonymous.

There were a total of 13 bids on the baseball that was caught by Jameson Sutton last Sept. 5 during a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field.

Home run ball No. 762 is a bargain considering that SCP Auctions handled the sale of Bonds’ record-breaking No. 756, which fetched $752,467
