NEW YORK (AP) - Pete Rose's copy of the 1990 agreement in which he accepted a lifetime ban from baseball failed to sell at auction because no bid met the minimum.
Goldin Auctions said Sunday the highest bid was $236,000, a price that would have been raised to $258,600 including the auctioneer's 10 percent fee.
Bidding began Oct. 16 and ran through Saturday.
Ken Goldin says in an email to The Associated Press that ``I am working on selling it privately for the consignor.''
The seller has not been identified, but Goldin says it is not Rose.
Among the items that did sell were Barry Lyons' 1986 Mets World Series ring ($22,840), a 2009 Derek Jeter game-used bat ($8,982) and Michael Jordan's American Express card ($3,146).
