Documents that baseball historians have called the Magna Carta of the game have sold at auction for nearly $3.3 million.
SCP auctions says the 1857 papers called the "Laws of Baseball" sold early Sunday to an anonymous buyer after more than two weeks of bidding.
The auction house had predicted prior to the auction's April 7 start that they could sell for more than $1 million.
The anonymous seller hadn't realized the value of the papers he bought in 1999 for $12,000.
The documents make Daniel Lucius "Doc" Adams the proper father of the modern game. It also puts baseball's birth date three years earlier than had been expected.
