A baseball signed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was bought at auction for $ 50,000. It was bought by the owner of the Indianapolis Colts Jim Irsay from the RR Auction in Boston and part of the proceeds from the sale (according to the website Tmz $ 15,000) will be donated for relief to Ukraine.
The Kiev leader signed it in 2019 during a visit to New York to attend the UN General Assembly. On the ball is Zelensky’s surname written in Ukrainian italics and in English capital letters, along with his signature and the logo of the Mlb (the North American professional baseball league).
It is also accompanied by a letter signed by Ukrainian diplomat Volodymyr Yelchenko, then the country’s ambassador to the UN, who gave it to government affairs specialist Randy L. Kaplan, a collector of baseballs signed by world leaders. www.laregione.ch
