1912 World Series trophy reportedly up for auction
A World Series trophy won by the Red Sox in 1912 will be auctioned off next month at Baltimore's Camden Yards, The Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

The sterling silver trophy, presented to manager Jake Stahl after Boston's victory over the New York Giants, will find a new home during a national sports collectors convention on Aug. 2.

Red Sox fan Robert Fraser, a Westwood, N.J., real-estate broker, told the AP that he and his wife bought the item for $74,000 in 2007. Now it will be sold again, 100 years after Boston won it, in Fenway Park's first season. This time, it's expected to bring in more than $300,000, according to Dallas-based Heritage Auctions.
