Lelands auction house said Monday that Robinson’s trophy he won with the Brooklyn Dodgers was sold to an anonymous buyer on Friday. Also sold was the jersey worn by Christian Laettner when he made a last-second shot to lift Duke over Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA tournament. The jersey went for $119,500. A rare Honus Wagner baseball card went for $657,250. The 1997 World Series ring won by Marlins pitcher Livan Hernandez was sold for almost $19,000.
