File - In this June 12, 1939 file photo, these baseball stars were pictured as they attended the dedication and their induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. Front row; Eddie Collins, Babe Ruth, Connie Mack, Cy Young; Rear row left to right; Hans Wagner, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Tris Speaker, Napoleon Lajoie, George Sisler and Walter Johnson. A baseball with the signatures of Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and eight other legends of the game has sold for more than $600,000.

SCP Auctions said Monday, Aug. 13, 2018, that it has sold for just over $623,000. That crushes the previous record of $345,000 for a signed ball, set in 2013. (AP Photo/File)
