Babe Ruth's Gold pocket watch brings $ 650k

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A gold pocket watch owned by Babe Ruth has sold for $650,108 at an auction in Southern California.

SCP Auctions said Sunday that the watch was from the 25th anniversary celebration in 1948 of the opening of Yankee Stadium. The stadium came to be dubbed "The House That Ruth Built" because of the number of fans the baseball legend drew to the venue.
