A nearly pristine baseball uniform worn by acting great Tom Hanks in “A League of Their Own” is currently available for fans to bid on.

Hosted by the sports memorabilia and card auction site Lelands, you can place your bid on the items Hanks donned in 1992 as the hard-drinking, disgruntled manager Jimmy Dugan, the former big-league superstar who hit nearly 500 home runs -- 58 in 1936 alone -- and is the man behind the famed phrase: “There’s no crying in baseball!”

The items in the lot include Hanks’ jersey, trousers, belt, cap and the leggings he wore in the World War II period piece.

The Penny Marshall-directed film stars Geena Davis, Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell, and centers on the Rockford Peaches team, the professional all-women baseball league that sprouted after many of America’s young and athletic men were off fighting in combat.

The authenticity of the set is verified by Sportsrobe, which also created the uniforms for the film, and the description sells the treasure as “not only the key costume from a major character in one of the finest baseball films ever made, but a Hollywood hit and a cultural touchstone and, most importantly, worn by a screen legend in one of his most iconic roles.”
