I know it was for a pretty small ammount, compared to what it is worth today.

Looks like he did alright.


I remember hearing $1 million dollars. I might be wrong though.

Yeah, typo on my part, I thought it was $10 million as well. I remember hearing it on YES. He was supposed to buy the Indians but something fell through so he wound up buying the Yankees instead.
