Babe Ruth’s Yankees Cap Is Being Sold at Auction by David Wells

A New York Yankees baseball cap worn by Hall of Famer Babe Ruth has gone up for auction, 15 years after David Wells donned it for an inning on the mound at Yankee Stadium.

Worn by Ruth in the early 1930s, the navy blue flannel cap is worth an estimated $400,000, according to SCP Auctions, which is handling the sale. The auction opened yesterday and closes on May 19, the company said in an e-mailed statement.
