Final out ball in World Series is valued in the millions

The Cubs won their first World Series title since 1908 and immediately after the final out, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo kept the ball and put it in his back pocket.

Rizzo gave the ball to his brother during the postgame interviews and it's assumed to still be with the family.

Well how much is that historic ball worth?

"The ball’s value goes far beyond sentiment. It might fetch more than $3 million if sold," Ken Goldin said founder of Goldin Auctions in New Jersey via bloomberg.com.

“It would be one of the most coveted baseballs of modern times,” he said.
