NEW YORK -- New York Yankees great Don Larsen knows that college isn't cheap. He has two grandchildren set to earn their degrees in the coming years.

Larsen wants to pay for their education by auctioning off a prized possession -- the uniform he wore when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.

Steiner Sports Memorabilia is conducting the auction this fall. People from around the world will be invited to make bids online or via phone.

Steiner says it's already received several seven-figure offers for the uniform, which includes the jersey and pants. Executive Vice President Brett Schissler estimates the uniform will sell for up to $2 million.

Larsen is now 82. He pitched the perfect game during Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.
