It shouldn’t exist — and that’s why it fetched six-figures at auction.
What you see here is a near-complete box of 1948 Bowman baseball cards — packs that originally cost just a nickel apiece back in the day when kids ate the gum and, if they cared, had a shot at Yogi Berra, Stan Musial, Warren Spahn and Bob Feller Rookie Cards.
This rarity hit the auction block not long ago and finally sold via Mile High Card Co. last week.
From time to time, Buzz will break a box of something and post the results here. Like this and want to see more? Or maybe there’s a box you’d want to see busted? Send Buzz an email at BlowoutBuzz@blowoutcards.com.
