Baseball fans have the opportunity to own a rather unusual piece of MLB history. The dentures of Detroit Tigers legend Ty Cobb are currently up for auction at SCP Auctions.

Cobb is considered one of the best players ever to step on a baseball field, and now fans can own his false teeth -- but they come with a heavy cost.

On the official listing at SPC Auctions, the description explains that the upper and lower dentures will be included, as well as a "brass opening device."

"Originally sourced from the collection of Cobb's biographer Al Stump, our consignor acquired them in the famous Barry Halper sale back in 1999 and has owned them ever since," the description reads."

Cobb spent 22 seasons with the Tigers from 1905 to 1926, and he holds the MLB record for career batting average at .366. Between his lengthy stint with the Tigers and two seasons with the Philadelphia Athletics.

In 1936, Cobb became part of the Baseball Hall of Fame's inaugural class, along with other legends like Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson.
