The uniform that Bill Mazeroski wore when he blasted a walk-off home run for the Pirates during the final game of the 1960 World Series has a new owner after an auction of the former player's memorabilia.

Hunt Auctions said Saturday the collection took in $1.7 million, with the uniform commanding a sales price of $633,000.

Buyers also snapped up a bat and cleats from the epic Game 7, when his solo homer in the bottom of the 9th inning brought the title to Pittsburgh.

Other items sold include six Gold Glove awards he won during the 1950s and ‘60s.

Mazeroski played for the Pirates from 1956 to 1972 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2001.
