There are just a matter of hours left to bid on some unique World Series memorabilia.
At auctions.mlb.com, one of the bases used in Game 5 of the World Series was going for $8,250 as of Tuesday morning.
The top bid for the ball hit by Eric Hosmer that scored Alcides Escobar in the 12th inning of Game 1 of the World Series (and led to Hosmer’s epic bat flip) was $6,020. There are six other baseballs from the World Series up for bids.
Now for a bit of bad news: MLB has sold out of the “2015 World Series Game-Used Dirt Jar” from Game 1 at Kauffman Stadium. The jars appears to be the size of a spice bottle and were going for $24.99.

The good news? Dirt from Game 2 is still available. I can’t confirm this, but I never saw new dirt being trucked into Kauffman Stadium between games, so it’s possible that Game 2 dirt has a bit of dirt from Game 1.
There are all kinds of goodies available from the American League Championship Series: rosin bags, baseballs and clubhouse name plates.
By the way, the ball used when Alcides Escobar hit the inside-the-park home run sold for more than $19,000, according to Yahoo Sports.
