CALIFORNIA – A man in California may have made the deal of a lifetime when he bought a Babe Ruth baseball card.
The man said he recently bought the card at a collectibles store for $2. The store owner reportedly believed the card was fake.
Dale Ball, the man who bought the card, had it checked by an antique expert, who believes it’s the real deal.
One expert has put the card’s value between $20,000 and $30,000.
Ball said he believes it’s a rare card made in 1921 and wants to start the bidding $2 million. He also said he won’t forget the man who sold it to him.
“God blessed me and I intend to bless the buy that I got it from,” Ball said. “I will go back to the store when it’s all over to give him a proper payment for it.”
The card is yet to be authenticated, so it’s still an open question whether it’s real or not.
