A 12-year-old Yankee fan named Jeffrey Maier became a household name in the 1996 ALCS when he reached over the rightfield fence at Yankee Stadium to catch a ball hit by Derek Jeter. Despite Orioles rightfielder Tony Tarasco's objections, the umpire ruled it a home run.
The black Mizuno glove Maier thrust over the wall is now up for auction. The auction will take place in New York on Feb. 21, but bids can be placed online ahead of time.
The current bid is set at $13,000 (plus a 19.5 percent fee), and the auction house values the item at $50,000.
