Great pull $$$ Huge money. I would estimate it being worth $10k-$20k.

It wouldn't be something I would want in my collection.

But if I collected WWII memorabilia, I would want that card.

Wow - congrats - you hit THE card. Very jealous, I would LOVE to own something like that. On a side note, I am glad you hit that from a NON BO case ... b/c I would have been kicking myself forever for not buying any cases from BO. At least now I know I had no chance.

As for the morons saying you need to donate money from the sale, just ignore them, and enjoy your 10 + grand

Again, congrats, and so, so jealous right now

Thanks to all for the well-wishes.

I have received some inquiries about selling the card. I guess to save everyone time I will state here that I do expect the card to go between 10 and 20 thousand, and I plan to use an auction house unless I get an offer from someone here that is in that range that I feel is worth taking ahead of using the auction house.

I am still in shock over having pulled the card and still in wonder/horror at seeing this madman's signature in my possession. (And especially as someone pointed out toward the end of his life after all his atrocities had been committed.) The historical significance is overwhelming.

Anyway, glad you all could see the card for yourselves here first!
Tim

Man...I know how I'd feel pulling this if it were me. Considering he may have taken the lives of some people along my family tree...

I will say that it is one of those once in a lifetime type pulls and you will have a nice sale. I really would advise that some of the money from a sale go to a holocaust survivors charity or something along those lines.

I have no clue what this might net you, no clue if more cuts will show up down the line in other releases.

Personally if I had the funds, I would get it and burn it, taking no consideration into the historical significance of it, but that is my gut talking.

There are plenty of other items out there in this world that people are holding which probably have the same type of impact which may or may not make it out into the main stream in some sort of auction or card release.

For historians this is huge.

I mean how would someone in say Cuba feel about getting something w/JFK, or someone in Japan getting something w/FDR?

Really happy to see you were the one who pulled that Tim

Tremendous piece of world history right there. People need to get off the soap box with the donate the money and all the other BS. ANYONE who says they wouldn't want to pull that card or would give away the proceeds from the sale is FULL OF SH*T.

Would be tough for me personally to sell right now given the economy and how things are selling at bargain prices these days. I can only see the value of an authentic Hitler signature going up over time unlike 95% of the stuff made today.

Why?? You realize the guy who pulled this has nothing to do with killing Jews 60 years ago right?

Should someone who pulls one of the old presidential cuts have to donate money to the NAACP since that president owned slaves?

Not really jumping on you, but its like the 10th time someone has said this guy should/needs to donate some of his money on a card that he pulled b/c the cut auto is of an evil man. Its just stupid. Tim has no obligation to donate anything.

The German Nazis - WW2 League. He was the manager but really out of touch with play on the field. Lot's of yelling and screaming, and the coach and assistant coaches just sorta went with everything. They tried to push him out once but it only ended up with their heads rolling. Eventually, the All-Stars finished their run.

I have been thinking the same thing...If I would have pulled it, I would have sold it, cashed the profits into 1 dollar bills, filled up a kiddie pool with them and sunbathed naked.

But I am just crazy like that! Woot Woot!

Wow. Guess i will respond to some of the things said after i mentioned i would donate some of the profits.

"This is whats wrong with the world"

You live in a shiny shiny place if my opinion is what you think is wrong with the world lol.

"Donating is something people say that didn't pull it"

I had no interest in the product. Just not my thing. Nothing wrong with it and I am sure lots of people really like it. Had I been interested and i pulled I promise you I would make a nice donation. I wouldnt want to profit off that name and not give something back. Just me and how I think.

This makes me dumb?

Its the ops card and if he looks at it different thats cool. I would donate some to even out the fact that I am "profitting" of a monster... of course the op isn't responsible for hitlers sad actions (said to someone else) but why not give some back?

I donate to people less fortunate alott... and i dont have any more than most people just getting by in life. People are built differently and see things differently. No reason to get but hurt
