This game-worn cap holds the distinction of having been worn by two Yankee greats. Babe Ruth wore the cap in the 1930s and David Wells, an avid collector of baseball memorabilia, wore it while pitching against the Cleveland Indians in 1997. "It had a backstory," Kohler says. "That added a lot to this piece." Former Yankees manager Joe Torre made Wells revert to his uniform cap after getting three outs with the hat on, and SCP later approached Wells about giving up Ruth's cap for good. It sold for $537,278 in 2012.
