Little old ladies and Ebay…

You gotta love this young lady of 72 years. Forget the obvious question of how did a 72 year old manage to post something on Ebay; that’s a story for another post. I still have trouble helping my mother check her email. I suppose Ebay is today’s garage sale. You always want to be the one to find the prize for $10 and take it to Antiques Road Show and find out it’s worth 1.2 million dollars.

According to Yahoo Sports, Bernice Gallego pulled an old baseball card from a box of antiques and thought, hey, this might be worth something and posted it on Ebay for $10. After a flurry of inquires as to it’s authenticity she got to thinking maybe this is worth more than $10. She thought right! The card was made in 1869 featuring the Red Stocking B.B. Club of Cincinnati. It’s considered to be one of the first baseball cards ever made.

Actually value: Well, let’s just say the bidding will start at around $100,000 and let the fun begin!

Nice find Bernice! Good luck.


Mama! Where are my old baseball cards!!!

Just an observation…
