A baseball jersey worn by Babe Ruth has sold to Lelands.com for more than $4.4 million, a record for any item of sports memorabilia, according to the buyer and seller.

SCP Auctions says that price broke the previous record of $4,338,500 set in 2010 for James Naismith’s founding rules of basketball.

A spokeswoman for Lelands.com, says the company plans to sell the jersey privately rather than re-auction it.
