BOSTON (AP).- The 1912 Boston Red Sox World Series trophy presented to team manager Jake Stahl is going on the auction block.

The sterling silver trophy will be auctioned Aug. 2 at Camden Yards in Baltimore during a national sports collectors convention.

The trophy's current owner is Red Sox fan Robert Fraser. He says several companies wanted to auction it off for the 100th anniversaries of the team's World Series win against the New York Giants and the opening of Fenway Park. The Westwood, N.J., real estate broker says he and his wife paid $74,000 for it in 2007.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions says it expects the trophy will fetch more than $300,000.

Fraser says there were two trophies made but no one knows what happened to the other one.
