One lucky collector in Japan pulled a pretty impressive card out of the 2009 Topps American Heritage set — an eight-piece one-of-a-kind American Legends booklet Relic card that includes game-used pieces from several legends.
Who? Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Lou Gehrig, Jackie Robinson, Jimmie Foxx and Mickey Mantle.
It’s on eBay right now with a Buy It Now price of $1,799.99.
What’s it look like on the inside?
Not bad. Not bad at all. You can see the auction here.
