It’s something to see once you become famous. A signed ball from Major League Baseball’s ‘star player’ Mike Trout (LA Angels) as a child was sold for 20 million won.
According to American media reports such as Yahoo Sports on the 26th (Korean time), Trout’s signed ball during his Little League days was sold for $15,600 (about 20 million won).스포츠토토
Trout signed a home run ball at the age of 12 after hitting a home run in Little League. It was a cute present for his uncle. Mike Trout’s uncle Kevin Trout, who had the ball for 20 years, decided it was time to sell his nephew’s signed ball, which had become a ‘superstar’.
His uncle Kevin put Trout’s signed ball as a child and a picture of Trout as a child in a Little League uniform to the Robert Edwards Auction. At auction, the ball sold for $15,600. Robert Edward Auctions claimed it to be “one of the earliest photos of Trout in a baseball uniform”.
The signed ball started bidding at $2,500 and jumped from $4,300 to $15,600 in about 24 hours before the auction closed. The local media sees it as a possible result ‘because it’s Trout’. He is a player who is loved not only by Angels fans but also by major league fans, and even has the symbolism of being the U.S. national team. Trout is a strong player in the Major League Hall of Fame in the future.
‘Yahoo Sports’ said, “Here’s a little advice for parents of Little League players. Get your child to sign a baseball right now. If your kids end up in the MLB Hall of Fame in the future, you’ll benefit greatly. You can get it,” he left an interesting advice.
