Little old Ladies and Ebay, Part II

Bernice Gallego is back in the news. I wrote about her in the post Little Old Ladies and Ebay back on January 9, 2009. She found an old baseball card in a box and put it up on ebay for $10. She quickly learned that the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings team card was worth a good deal more and cancelled to auction and did her research.

Well played Bernice! The card was recently sold to Jeff Rosenberg, the president of a Houston company that promotes sports memorabilia shows. The card, one of only a few of it’s kind sold for a whopping $64,073!


Good for you Bernice!

Just an observation…

Good for her!! I am glad she did not have some crook offer her $20 for it knowing full well the actual value of the card.

I never did understand that baseball card thing. But I do understand cold hard cash. Go Bernice :))
