John,
How did the Ruth home run bat led to a new Ruth and Gehrig gamers being found. Any good story behind them.

Well, all I can say is that now I'm motivated to start rooting around in my grandfather's attic and find that Wagner he told me left up there. I'll report back soon.

Eric->Mostly everything has been positive. I ran into some local negativity. One of the businesses my wife and I own are a large chain of childcare facilities. We're the largest childcare provider in the South. Just a week before the news hit, we raised our weekly rates on close to 1,000 working class families. The reason for the price hike was that it was time. It had been 4 years since the last rate hike. Some of the families felt the rate hike was tied into the Wag purchase. We also have a GM dealership. A lot of customers wanted a cheap deal on a car after that. Besides that, all positive. The news stories led to a phenomenal purchase in Michigan. As for the card being for sale....sure, anything is for sale. I probably won't reply again, bidding in Mastro. Thank you, John

Hey John,
Great idea to advertise your site!

I hope we're not bidding on the same thing in Mastro, good luck!

John,

Congratulations on the Wagner, and thank you for posting your comments.

Now, regarding this comment in your post:

"I threw up a Babe Ruth home run bat at an inflated price last month."

You might want to get some Ipecac or Kaopectate for that wink.gif

Hey John. Loved the story in the AR Dem-Gazette about the Honus party. I was wondering how the guy bringing it home on the plane sat still with Wags in his pocket!!

BTW, do you have a BBC store in NLR?

Wonderful card easily one of the best looking examples out there IMO.

Still not sure that posting on eBay brings mega items out of the wood work and into your collection...I think that's a bit of a stretch but hey I could be wrong.

Cheers,

John

Nice to know when I'm in AK once a month on business that I'm flying over Mr. Wagner somewhere below.

the cut, bummer

I agree with earlier post - the cut kills it. Would never consider the card if I had the budget.
