A Babe Ruth jersey broke the world record for the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia Sunday, selling for $5.64 million, Hunt Auctions announced.

The jersey, dating back to Ruth’s days with the New York Yankees from 1928-30, broke the previous record of $4.4 million, which was also for a Ruth jersey — one from 1920.

"While the record-setting prices attained today are certainly astonishing, I am not surprised at all given the incredible materials and the mythical status the Babe holds in the history of this country,” Hunt Auctions president David Hunt said in a press release.

Hunt Auctions held an event Saturday in partnership with Ruth’s family with over 400 items up for auction, including the jersey. The buyer’s name has not been released.
