NEW YORK (AP) — The 1984 Summer Olympic Torch that Bruce Jenner carried through Lake Tahoe, Nevada, has sold for just under $24,000 at auction.

The torch is the first major piece of Jenner memorabilia to go to auction since the winner of the 1976 Olympic Decathlon Gold Medal became Caitlyn Jenner. It had been estimated to bring $20,000 or more.

It was among the highlights of a sports memorabilia auction held Thursday by Heritage Auctions in Chicago.

A circa 1860s Brooklyn Atlantics team baseball card that's been in the same family for over 150 years sold for more than $179,000.
