A home run ball hit by Lou Gehrig in the 1928 World Series is being auctioned off.

At the time, the Yankees' slugger called it the most significant homer of his career.

The ball could fetch up to $200,000.

The Connecticut woman selling it plans to use the money to pay her son's medical bills.

The Bombers swept the Cardinals in four games to win the series.
