   NEW YORK (AP) — Jackie Robinson’s 1947 Rookie of the Year award for the season he broke baseball’s color barrier has sold for $401,968.

Lelands auction house said Monday that Robinson’s trophy he won with the Brooklyn Dodgers was sold to an anonymous buyer on Jan. 10. The award came with a letter from Robinson’s widow Rachel.

Also sold was the jersey worn by Christian Laettner when he made a last-second shot to lift Duke over Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA tournament. The jersey went for $119,500.

A rare Honus Wagner baseball card went for $657,250. The 1997 World Series ring won by Marlins pitcher Livan Hernandez was sold for almost $19,000.
