10 crazy high prices for sports collectibles

If you've never paid millions of dollars for a baseball jersey, that's probably because it was never worn by a legend. Here are some pretty pricey sports souvenirs.

The value of anything is only what someone else is willing to pay for it. So the only time something is "overpriced" is when no one is willing to pay that.

I love sports, but I'm just not in to collecting things.  Anything.  

A few years back we posed the question at the supper table of what you would run back in to a burning house for - assuming all humans and pets were safely out.  The only thing I would consider is my dad's old catchers mitt.  My son asked if it was worth a lot, and it isn't.  Old and beat up and he never even played in the minors.  

He understand that it means a lot to me, but I also told him that if someone offered $10K for it I'd sell it.  

I just don't understand collecting "stuff."

Only way I would ever buy any old sport memorabilia is if I knew I could turn right around and make a big profit.... that is unlikely so for me I won't be buying!

The only people who pay these stratospheric prices for stuff are those who could afford to lose that kind money and still get a goods night sleep. I guess the super rich like many poor folk, yearn to bask in the reflected glory of others.
