It was thought to be lost to time, but a World Series championship pocket watch once owned by Babe Ruth is going up for auction in the city next month.
Heritage Auctions says it expects the watch to sell for at least $750,000 when it hits the auction block on February 22.
Ruth received the 14-karat gold piece in 1923 after helping the Yankees beat the New York Giants to win their first world title.
At the time, winning players got watches, which were later replaced by rings.
Ruth owned the watch until he died in 1948.
It changed hands several times over the years until its current owner bought it in 1988.
