1869 Peck & Snyder card sells for $75k!

Figured I’d bring this full circle.  The 1869 Peck & Snyder card my friend at the Fresno Bee wrote about six weeks ago sold yesterday at auction for a whopping $75,285.78. You can read his story here. In case you forgot, this is the card that became a national story after a Fresno, Calif., woman found it in a box of antiques. The woman, an antique dealer of vintage age herself, initially tried to sell the card on eBay for a mere $10 before a good friend advised her otherwise. Since then she’s had the card authenticated and slabbed by PSA, had the card (and her story) featured in/on the Fresno Bee, New York Times, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Deadspin.com, the front page of Yahoo.com and published in various Beckett magazines. Of course after Mike published the story, I brought it to you first (sorta). Thanks, Mike.

  1. You were No. 2 on this one. I suppose I can make a joke there, but I”ll just say thanks for helping to spread the word on this story.

  2. If you’re implying I really did nothing … you’re absolutely right. Honestly, I’m not a fan of just posting messages to pass along the word or work of others, but this was a special case.

  3. Actually, I’m was implying something about poop.
