Shane Victorino’s Game 6 grand slam of the 2013 ALCS went down in Red Sox history the moment the ball came off of his bat. And now, you can own a piece of that history.
The grand slam ball is available on SCP Auctions' website. Considering SCP has started the bidding at $5000, it’s not surprising that someone would want to sell it (Personally, I would never let that ball out of my sight). Nick Wood, a 23-year-old Westborough, Mass. native, was the lucky fan who caught the ball, and SCP reported what he said about the moment he got it.
“We were just jumping up and down and I heard this security guard screaming at us, saying, 'Ball, ball, ball!' And I looked down and it was literally rolling in between our feet,” said Wood. “I grabbed it and after that it was just mayhem. As a lifelong Red Sox fan, I’m glad to be part of such a historic moment.”
There’s already one bid, and there are still 16 days left in the auction, so if you want your own little piece of history, you’ll have to fork over a lot more than $5000.
