Baseball card from 1865 expected to sell for big bucks

SubscriptionsGo to the Subscriptions Centre to manage your:My ProfileSix figure bids are expected when an auction house sells a rare 148 year old baseball card that was discovered at a rummage sale in a rural area in the far northeastern state of Maine, the auction house manager said Wednesday.A man found the card by chance in a photo album he bought while antique picking in the small town of Baileyville near the border with New Brunswick, said Troy Thibodeau of Saco River Auction Co. in Biddeford.It's not the same as a modern baseball card, which became Nike Air Max WomensNike Free Shoes Mens commonplace beginning in the 1880s. Instead, it's an original photograph from 1865 of the Brooklyn Atlantics amateur baseball club mounted on a card. The card shows nine players gathered around their manager. Library of Congress. Putting a dollar figure on it is difficult, he said, but he expects it to fetch at least $100,000 US at the Feb. 6 auction."There hasn't been another one that's sold," he said. "When there are only two known in the world, what's it worth?"Last summer, the auction house sold a rare 1888 card of Hall of Fame baseball player Michael (King) Kelly for $72,000. The priciest baseball card ever is a 1909 Honus Wagner card, which sold for $2.8 million in 2007.In its book Baseball Americana, the Library of Congress calls it the first dated baseball card, handed out to supporters and opposing teams in a gesture of bravado from the brash Brooklynites, who were dominant and won their league championships in 1861, 1864 and 1865.It's not known how many were produced, but the Library of Congress is aware of only the two copies. A trading card grading firm, Sportscard Guaranty LLC, has authenticated the card as the real thing, said Bob Luce, senior grader at the New Jersey company.The Maine man bought the card by happenstance. While at a yard sale, he bought a photo album, old Coca Cola bottles and a couple of oak chairs for less than $100, Thibodeau said.Rarest card in Hall of FameWhile looking through the album, the buyer came across the baseball card. He later mailed it to Saco River Auction, having read about Nike Air Max 2015 the auction house's sale of the 1888 card last summer. Thibodeau did not release the man's name, saying he did not want to be identified.
