The sports fan who caught the ball that Aaron Judge hit for his record-setting 62nd home run declined a substantial offer to sell the historically significant item before it is put up for auction later this month.
The man who caught the ball on October 4 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, was awarded $3 million for it
Cory Youmans, who is 35 years old and caught the ball, was offered the money. Instead, he made the decision to put the ball up for auction with Goldin Auctions.
Youmans shared his thoughts with Passan, saying, “It seems fair in the sense that it provides everybody that is interested and has the means the option to buy it.” “As a fan, I’m interested to learn how much it’s worth, as well as who buys it and what they do with it,” she said.
Youmans stated that he had a conversation with a New York Yankees security officer on the evening that he caught it, but they were unable to come to an agreement over the return of the ball.
Judge joked to reporters on Thursday that he will not be placing a bid because “I haven’t signed my free-agent deal yet, so I believe that’s a bit out of my price range right now.” Judge had previously stated that he would not be interested in purchasing the ball.
On November 29, the auction will begin, and the minimum bid will be one million dollars.
The founder of Goldin Auctions, Ken Goldin, told TMZ Sports that has the potential to become the baseball with the highest price ever paid for it at auction. “More over three million” is how I would put my estimate.
