BALTIMORE (AP) - A collection of memorabilia put up for auction by Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson has earned $1.44 million for charity.

Robinson provided nearly his entire collection - except for his Hall of Fame ring - to Heritage Auctions. The online auction concluded on Saturday.

Robinson’s 1964 American League Most Valuable Player Award drew the highest bid, closing at $155,350. His 1966 World Series ring drew $131,450, and his 1970 championship ring garnered $143,400.

His 1970 Gold Glove - one of 16 he collected during his career - went for $54,970.

Other items for sale included Robinson’s birth certificate, his 1955 rookie contract with the Baltimore Orioles and his 1957 baseball card.

All the proceeds will go to the Constance & Brooks Robinson Charitable Foundation.
