The 1912 Red Sox World Series trophy was auctioned for $239,000 last Thursday at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore.

The buyer has not been identified. Before the sale, Heritage Auctions had estimated the 14-inch silver trophy would sell for at least $300,000.

The seller, Robert Fraser, bought the trophy from Bruce Garland for a $74,000 finder's fee, including commission, in 2007. According to Fraser, Garland bought the trophy from the family of Jake Stahl, the manager of the 1912 Sox.
