68 years to the day after his famous "farewell" speech, a rare 1925 Lou Gehrig Exhibit card changed hands.
It was fitting. On the annivesary of "Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day", a Lou Gehrig baseball card brought the highest price among cards sold on eBay.
A 1925 Gehrig 'rookie' card graded PSA 5, sold for a "best offer" price of $14,000. The card is the second highest graded example among those authenticated by PSA. Just one card of its kind has ever been graded higher.
