The Godzilla of Baseball Cards Has Been Pulled!

Hey guys, Drew back here. A few months ago when 2010 Topps Tribute was first released, a collector in Missouri pulled one of the best redemptions imaginable. He recently received the 1/1 card, and since he is not a Yankees fan, he decided to put it up for sale. Beckett Select Auctions took over the auction for him to ensure security and trust in the buyer's mind. Well enough about the pull, take a look at this card!

Yes, that would be ONE card! This booklet cut autograph features 9 autographs, of the entire 1927 Yankees team lineup! So this means, that there are autographs of Yankee legends Earle Combs, Tony Lazzeri, Bob Meusel, Waite Hoyt, and oh, I forgot, Babe Ruth, and Lou Gehrig! No modern day card can top this baby, as I'm sure that it is the best card of 2010, and maybe of the 21st century!

The opening bid for the card is $20,000, so if you have thousands of dollars just sitting around, you may be able to own one of the most valuable cards ever produced! I would expect the card to sell for close to $50,000, as Ruth/Gehrig dual cuts have sold for about $15,000 alone. Throw in 7 other greats, and make a beautiful 1/1 booklet card and this thing will be one of the highest selling modern day cards.

A huge congrats to the person that pulled the card, I am EXTREMELY jealous! Here is the link to the auction, which started last night, and will end by around the 23rd.

See Ya!

  2. What I don't understand is that if this is a redemption, why keep it card sized? They could have done this as a plaque or something else and made it look 100 times better. Card companies still don't get it at all.
