Don Larsen Takes Back Perfect Game Uniform from Museum: Don Larsen is auctioning the New York Yankees uniform he wore during his 1956 World Series perfect game, even though he gave it to the San Diego Museum of Champions 48 years ago and the institution thought it was a gift. "I felt I wanted to do something with it," said Larsen, 82. "I'm not getting any younger." Other museums have dealt with take-backs on valuable items decades later. Larsen, who never made more than $20,000 a year in his career, could make up to a million from this sale.
