GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) -- An autographed baseball glove that Lou Gehrig gave to a Connecticut man when he was a boy has sold for $287,500.

Officials with Hunt Auctions said the glove sold Tuesday at auction in Minneapolis. They didn't disclose the name of the buyer.

Howard Henderson, a 92-year-old Greenwich (GREN'-ich) resident, says the New York Yankees slugger gave him the glove in the mid-1930s. It's signed: ''To Howard. I hope you have much luck with this glove as I did. Lou Gehrig.''

Gehrig and his wife were friends with Henderson's father, Ray, a songwriter. Gehrig visited the family's Bronxville, New York, home.
