Charlie Sheen is money-grabbing again. However, this time, it's by playing pawn broker.
Recently, the wildly famous (and slightly unhinged) actor was revealed to be the sole owner of a priceless artifact, Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series championship ring. What does Sheen plan to do with this iconic piece of baseball memorabilia? He plans to sell it to the highest bidder, of course.
According to a recent report by Fox News, Sheen sent the Great Bambino's championship ring and former Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert's original copy of the trade document which first sent the baseball great to the Bronx, to Leland's auction house in New York. Collectively, the two combined items have already drawn over $1 million in bids, with prices expected to soar even higher.
Bidding on the pristine ring alone has already risen to over $600,000, while bidding on the trade document has exceeded $400,000, and Leland's plans to leave the bidding open until as late as this Friday.
The two historic items' high-ball prices are a result of their profoundly mint condition, which, according to Sheen himself, is better than the condition of most items currently on display in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.
Sheen is sure to pocket a ridiculous profit, even if the notoriously hard-partying, high-rolling actor has no recollection of the price he paid for the items back in the 1990s.
“I’ve enjoyed these incredible items for more than two decades and the time has come. Whatever price it brings is gravy,” Sheen said in an interview with ESPN.

Time will tell exactly how much cash the self-proclaimed "warlock" will walk away with, but he's sure to hit a grand slam.
