Rose's banishment contract fails to sell at auction
NEW YORK (AP) -- Pete Rose's copy of the 1990 agreement in which he accepted a lifetime ban from baseball failed to sell at auction because no bid met the minimum.
Goldin Auctions said Sunday the highest bid was $236,000, a price that would have been raised to $258,600 including the auctioneer's 10 percent fee.
Bidding began Oct. 16 and ran through Saturday.
