Pay the ball!
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is now the proud owner of a baseball signed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
He reportedly purchased the rare item for a whopping $50,103 at the RR auction in Boston.
Over $15,000 will be donated to disaster relief efforts in Ukraine.
Zelensky signed the ball in cursive Ukrainian and English versions during a visit to New York in 2019, during which he addressed the United Nations and met with then-President Trump.
Attached to the ball is a letter signed by Volodymyr Yelchenko, Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations at the time. He gave the ball to government affairs expert Randy L. Kaplan, a baseball collector signed by world leaders.
Baseball reportedly had 35 bids. The ball is expected to sell for $15,000.
The baseball will be on display June 3 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan as part of The Jim Irsay Collection.
