Pesky died in 2012 at the age of 92. He had spent most of his life affiliated with the Red Sox since joining them in 1942.

The ring Pesky was presented when the Red Sox won the 2007 World Series also went for a pretty penny at $29,900.

Pesky’s son, David, told WBZ that his father had kept many of the items stored in boxes in his basement for years.
