The uniform (Hayden resident) Don Larsen was wearing when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history has sold for $756,000. The former New York Yankees' right-hander achieved perfection in Game 5 of the 1956 Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers. The pinstriped uniform with No. 18 on the back received 22 bids in an online auction on Steinersports.com. The winning bidder was Pete Siegel, CEO of GottaHaveIt.com. His company has been building a collection of Yankees memorabilia that it plans to put on display/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Which piece of baseball memorabilia would you like to own?
