Mark McGwire’s 70th home run ball: $3 million
In the summer of 1998, baseball fans across the country watched Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire try to break Roger Maris’ single-season home-run record. Eventually, both players broke Maris’ record of 61 home runs, which had stood since 1961.
Sosa ended the year with 66 home runs and McGwire hit an even 70. Even though it wasn’t the home run that broke the record, comic book millionaire Todd McFarlane purchased McGwire’s 70th home run ball for $3 million. He also owns McGwire’s 67th, 68th, and 69th, and Sosa’s 66th home run balls.

Only 57 of the cards are known to exist and few are in good condition considering they were printed between 1909 and 1911. At one time, hockey legend Wayne Gretzky owned one of the mint condition copies.
