Charlie Sheen is selling Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series Ring and 1919 contract that sent Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees.

The items are up for auction at Lelands auction house with bidding closing Friday, ESPN reported. Bidding on the ring is already over $555,000, and it may become the highest-priced sports championship ring ever to be sold. The sale document price has topped $400,000, but a previous copy sold for $996,000 in 2005.

Ruth’s 1927 ring commemorated the World Series in which Ruth hit .400 with 2 homers and seven RBI. The Yankees swept the series with the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0. 

“I’ve enjoyed these incredible items for more than two decades and the time has come,” Sheen said, ESPN reported. “Whatever price it brings is gravy.”

Sheen purchased the items in the 1990s and doesn’t remember what he paid for them.

Sheen kept the items in top notch condition, claiming to have framed them better than items he saw at the Baseball Hall of Fame, ESPN noted.

Sheen hopes the items go to a collector who will enjoy them as much as he did and will share them with the world as well.

Sheen is HIV positive and has been liquidating his assets to pay for treatment and medical costs while recently struggling to find work, the New York Daily News reported. He also is being sued by one of his exes, who said he lied about having HIV.
