Like the eBay listing says, “this card needs no build up…”
Thankfully, drool travels downward; otherwise, this self-explaining colossal quad cut would be dirtying monitors click by click. Since Ruth, Mantle, Williams and Foxx are household names, the magnitude of this Beckett Select auction really doesn’t require an explanatory infomercial or the ShamWow guy’s hyperbolic pitch.
But I can’t help myself.
Featuring four elite names and two historical franchises, the 1/1 2005 Upper Deck SP Legendary Quad Cuts card is a collector’s dream and a cultural gem. Paired with vintage images, the four boldly inked Hall of Famer signatures are vivid symbols of American icons.
The living history hit was apparently pulled at a flea market in Buffalo, N.Y., and hasn’t surfaced on the market until now.
Graded as authentic and stored safely away from fleas, current pricing information and other details for the Beckett Select exclusive is available on eBay.
Too bad the Ruth is a Greg Marino forgery.
