Ignored for decades after being acquired by a 1920s youngster, a Babe Ruth autographed ball is now getting its just due.
Now it’s the pick of a litter of Ruth signed balls in the current Lelands auction. The consignor has even recorded an audio tape of how his grandfather obtained it and what happened to it afterward. David Seideman of Forbes.com wrote about this newly uncovered gem.
Still no news to report on a possible sale of The Topps Company. A couple of weeks ago, Bloomberg reported that Topps could be had for the right offer but there has been no public comment.
Derek Helling of FanSided.com writes about what the future might hold and why one buyer mentioned earlier might be a natural fit.

A 60-year-old Delray Beach, FL woman with an extensive criminal history is facing multiple burglary and grand theft over $100,000 charges after cutting locks and pilfering multiple storage units, amassing a cache of stolen items that included a 1969 Preakness Stakes trophy she tried to sell.
Alicia Elaine Murphy of Boca Raton was taken into custody last week after DBPD officers and detectives arrived at her Enfield Street house with a box truck and a search warrant. After finding several stolen items in the home, they confiscated the items and arrested Murphy.
The warrant was the culmination of an investigation into a months-long storage unit burglary case. Police say Murphy routinely stole property and pawned it. Detectives estimate the value of the hundreds of stolen items to be between $350,000 and $400,000.
She had planned to sell the Preakness trophy at auction before she was arrested.
The trophy belonged to Francine McMahon, whose father owned the horse that won the race.
Here’s something you don’t see every day. A playbook from a former NFL assistant coach …on eBay.
