This Day In New York Yankees History 6/10

On this day in 1921 the Yankees Babe Ruth became the All Time Home Run record holder in the Major Leagues with 120 home runs. The historic home run would come off the Indians Jim Bagby. Ruth would hold the record until Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run in 1974.

On this day in 2005 Gotta Have It Collectibles wins the bid for the actual contract signed on December 26, 1919 by Red Sox owner Harry Frazee, Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert, and by Babe Ruth himself. The winning bid was foe $996,000 which was five times what the Yankees paid for the Bambino and the curse that came with it.
