Game 3 of the World Series ended in one of the most unimaginable ways possible as the Cardinals escaped with a win thanks to an obstruction call at third base.

Now, Major League Baseball is giving fans the chance to own the infamous base by placing it in an online auction. Seriously, check it out for yourself.

The description of the item reads as the following:

You are bidding on a Game-Used 3rd base from innings 5-9 of the 10/26/13 Boston Red Sox @ St. Louis Cardinals World Series Game 3. This was the 3rd base on the field for the "Obstruction Play" that gave the Cardinals a win in Game 3. This item contains a Major League Baseball Authentication hologram. 

The bidding, which began on Nov. 21, started at a thrifty $500.00, but has now moved up to $3,000, at the time of this writing. The cost to ship the base will run the winning bidder approximately $20 if they reside within the continental United States, $40 if they happen to reside in Alaska or Hawaii, $50 if they hail from Joey Votto's native country of Canada, or a cool $120 for anywhere else.

The auction is set to expire Saturday night (Nov. 30) at 9:00 EST.
