Ozzie Smith is considered one of the greatest, if not the best, defensive shortstop of all time, as evidenced by his 13 consecutive Gold Glove Awards.
Those awards now belong to someone else.
SCP Auctions announced Sunday that Smith sold the Gold Glove Awards from 1980-92 for $519,203.
Smith also sold two World Series rings that were given to him as gifts from the St. Louis Cardinals. His 2011 St. Louis Cardinals' World Series ring sold for $51,364 and his 2006 ring went for $42,448.
The prices include a 20 percent commission, known as a buyer's premium. SCP said the winning bidders wanted to remain anonymous.
