A Babe Ruth Rookie Card Was Sold For Over $130K

Ellen Kelly of Westernport, Maryland found a rare Babe Ruth baseball card in her family’s antique piano and she’s finally about to cash in some major dough for it.

According to artnet, Kelly purchased the piano at a family estate sale for just $25 back in 1992. At the time, she noticed that the instrument’s pedal was sticking out and called a friend to repair it. Tucked underneath the pedal was a stack of 112 baseball cards from 1916 including the rookie Ruth card that portrayed the young athlete with the Boston Red Sox.

Auction for the card ended on April 25, and the final sell was worth $130,053.
