A Jackie Robinson-used baseball glove, believed to have been used in the 1955 and ’56 World Series, sold for $373,002 in an auction that ended Monday.

The auction was run by New York-based Steiner Sports.

Despite the buzz surrounding the recently released film “42” about Robinson’s life story, the glove didn’t break a record for the highest figure paid for a glove at auction.

That distinction belongs to a glove that was advertised as the last that Lou Gehrig used, which went for $387,500 in the Sotheby’s auction of the collection of famed collector Barry Halper in 1999.
