The ball from the final out of New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's career was auctioned off for $24,025, while the first base used during the game went for $50,050, Rich Mueller of SportsCollectorsDaily.com reports.
The Boston Red Sox held a two-week auction that ended on Monday for the ball that Jeter hit to Red Sox shortstop Jemile Weeks on Sept. 28
Jeter finished his 20-year career with a .310 batting average, 260 home runs, 1,311 RBI, 358 steals and five World Series titles.
Since retiring, Jeter has started a website, The Players' Tribune, where athletes give their first-hand perspective on their careers.
Earlier this month, the Yankees acquired Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks, and he is expected to replace Jeter at shortstop.
