Thumbs Up Epic Ebay Grab? Babe Ruth Game Used Relic
I picked this bad boy up on Ebay last week for $128. Just arrived in the mail. The auction ended around 11:00 AM CST last Thursday. Feel like I did pretty good for myself. I can't find any imperfections with my jeweler's loupe, which is a nice bonus. Anything you see on here including that scratch/line is dust, my scanner or the penny sleeve.

(Also EBAY 1/1!!! It's card #9 which is Ruth's jersey number squared!!!!)

Congrats.
As nice as it is, I wouldnt have bought it with that wording on the back. That wood could be from a coffee table that Cliff Flyodd set his drink down on. lol

I feel like cards like this are so watered. Anything babe ruth like this should be numbered to 5 or 10

+1, in this case it is most likely a piece of the bench as Topps has done that before for Babe Ruth cards and tried to pawn them off as bat cards. While it is a nice card, I personally wouldn't have paid that much for it considering the vagueness of description of the memorabilia piece.

That's fair, but at $128 I think I can easily "liquidate" it at any time this season and make my money back. Until then I can enjoy it!

I like it because I actually had no idea about that wins above replacement factoid. Pretty impressive.
