I think Babe Ruth is inside, and now I'm broke and can't afford to hire anyone.

Wow...that is some really nice stuff. Is all of that staying in your PC? Also, how much did the pack run you?

Damn Matt!!! That Thorpe made me all warm inside!

I just went and looked at a collection yesterday and he actually ahd the Ruth SK. Had nothing but the best 1909, Goudeys, SK's. You name it! All fake, every signle one. Even had the Eddie Plank card in the mix. Anyways, love to see the real deal, and the sealed pack is just amazing. This is the stuff my dreams are made of!

You maybe broke but you're wife will have fun selling all you're goodies after she finds out how much you spent and kicks you out off the house...
All in fun Matt

Thank you. They are staying in my PC. I can't help but love Sport Kings.

The pack was a redemption from Sportkings Series B.

Peter,

You always make me laugh. You're probably right too! Fortunately for me, (and my marriage), that pack was a redemption.

I have only heard of two packs left in existence. I would think there are more, but no one seems to know. Everybody I talked to, (except for one guy), said this pack is the only one they know of that's left. The other guy I talked to said he has one too.

That's why I won't open it and why it's not even tempting. No matter what card(s) I pull from it, they won't be worth as much as this sealed pack. I have felt like I'm in the Red Sox stadium lately though because I keep hearing whispers resembling "Babe Ruth" very softly.

Matt...

All I can say is ... AWESOME !!!

Can you get that pack to be authenticated by some company other than GAI? They may be respected in old pack authentication, but I just hate to see their "name" associated with such an amazing piece !!

So you said it's a redemption - you still could have paid $xx K for it ? Unless you pulled the redemption yourself - I'm sure you still paid MV for it ??!!

I didn't pull it. There is an amazing story behind this redemption card and process as a whole. The very quick version is a guy pulled it that lives out in the middle of nowhere in Canada. A friend of mine drove a couple of hours to the guy's house in the freezing cold and snow after dark last winter to pick it up for me. I didn't rest much until it finally made it's way home here in Kansas. Then I had to get it redeemed. It has been a fun ride with this card, that's for sure.
