It was Shane Victorino's grand slam that sent the Red Sox to the World Series. Now, the ball 23–year Nick Wood grabbed that night might be worth thousands.

"If they don't win it could go for $15,000 to $20, 000. If they do win it can go as high as $75,000, but it depends on the quality of bidders, bidding on the item," said Marsha Dunbar.

Dunbar is the marketing director for Your Sports Store Memorabilia in Bristol.

From autographed pictures, to Fenway seats, she says fans are willing to pay for a piece of Red Sox history.

Dunbar said, "There is a baseball, 1975, Red Sox Carlton Fisk, game–winning home run that went for $120,000.

SCP Auctions, a California–based company is auctioning the ball. Victorino has reached out to get it the back. Some fans say Victorino deserves the ball, but in the game of baseball, it's finder's– keeper.

"He was in the right place at the right time. He caught it and it's his choice," said Dunbar.
