Manuel Ramos was the life of a World Series party, when he somehow walked away with a Game 6 home run while sitting on a fifth-floor balcony in an apartment across from Minute Maid Park. Now the Houston man will capitalize on that fly ball Jorge Soler smashed on the train tracks to help the Braves beat the Astros and win the World Series in November.

Ramos auctioned off the ball through SCP Auctions, which is known for setting a record for the most expensive sports memorabilia when it sold a jersey worn by Babe Ruth for more than $4.4 million in 2012.

Soler’s home run ball won’t reach that stratosphere, but he’s been doing well so far. The auction, which started at $25,000, just started on Wednesday and is already at $33,275. Bidding ends February 5.

Soler crushed his third-inning home run 446 feet which sent him completely out of the stadium, bouncing off an awning outside the stadium before coming to rest on a sidewalk inside the stadium. chain-link fence that separates Crawford Street from the baseball field. Ramos was watching the game from a balcony at 500 Crawford Downtown Apartments and saw exactly where the ball landed. Teaming up with his brother Richard, Manuel was able to get over the fence, secure the baseball, and bring it back to the apartment while onlookers at their World Series party cheered him on.

The Braves hit three homers in the 7-0 World Series win at Houston, and SCP Auctions got their hands on all three. The Soler ball is by far the most popular. The ball hit by Freddie Freeman that bounced downfield after hitting near the Phillips 66 pump to left center is $9,075, while the ball that Dansby Swanson hit in the Crawford Boxes is $5,500.
