Sheen is putting the ring and document up to auction with auction house Lelands.com. The document is an original copy of the paperwork involved in Boston’s infamous decision to sell The Bambino to New York in 1919.

According to ESPN, bidding on the ring has topped out at $600,000; which would make it the highest priced sports championship ring ever sold. As for the documents relating to the sale — which were the copy for Yankees owner Jacob Rupert — have surpassed $400,000.

Sheen bought these items over two decades ago; so why does he want to sell them now?

“I’ve enjoyed these incredible items for more than two decades and the time has come,” said Sheen, who famously played pitcher Rick Vaughn in the “Major League” movies. “Whatever price it brings is gravy.” — Darren Rovell, ESPN

The fact that these items have resurfaced and are up for auction again is pretty cool. It’ll be interesting to see what the final price is for these priceless artifacts.
