Charlie Sheen has been revealed as the owner of two of baseball's most famous possessions, both of which are up for auction and set to be sold on June 30.
The actor confirmed to ESPN on June 26 that he consigned Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series ring and an original copy of the sale document that sent Babe from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees.
The items are being sold by Lelands.com auction house.
"I've enjoyed these incredible items for more than two decades and the time has come," Charlie told ESPN. "Whatever price it brings is gravy."
The prices are expected to be huge. The bidding on the ring opened at $100,000 and has topped $500,000. The Great Bambino's sale document opened at $100,000 and could go for nearly four times that amount. The ring could become the highest-priced sports championship ring ever sold.
Josh Evans of Lelands called the ring "insanely over the top," adding, "It's the greatest thing you can own from the greatest player in the greatest year."
A description of the item by the auction house calls it: "Baseball's true Holy Grail."
Charlie told the sports website that he doesn't remember what he paid for the items in the early 90s, but he had them displayed in a bar area in his house. He told ESPN that he enjoyed telling people about the items once they saw them displayed in his home.
Charlie is a well-known baseball fan and has other items up for auction with Lelands.com, as well, including a Babe Ruth-signed baseball that will bring in over $20,000.
The actor told ESPN that he hopes the collector can enjoy them as much as he did.
After Charlie confirmed that he was the mystery seller, the auction house tweeted, "The secret is finally out!!!"
