We all dream of hopping in the DeLorean and going back in time to when today’s most valuable cards were there for the picking in wax packs.
Felber grabbed a pack of 2012 Panini Golden Age Baseball at Sports Center Cards & Collectibles in Omaha, NE and inside was an original 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth.
The card was a major prize, having been purchased on the open market and inserted by Panini as one of the big pulls in the product that’s focused on past stars of sport, entertainment and history. Ungraded, it appears to be a 2 or 2.5 and would be valued at around $1,500-$2,500
“This is my all-time best pull by far — and I’ve been collecting my whole life,” Felber told Panini. “Rick Griencewic, the owner of Sports Center, said it was also the best card that he had ever seen pulled.”
Felber says he was already a big fan of Golden Age, which also features other buybacks from the 1930s and 40s randomly inserted as well as memorabilia cards from a variety of subjects including the Titanic and Secretariat.
