A Missouri man was looking around the house for something to sell on eBay. That old "pillowcase" with the old time ballplayers might be good. It had only cost his late wife $2 at a garage sale……….
They weren’t baseball cards. He knew that. They weren’t team pennants. He knew that too. A man from the Ozarks area of Missouri figured it had to be worth a $49 minimum bid.
Savvy eBay scroungers knew what the 17 little pennants sewn together to make a lousy pillowcase were. Ferguson Baking pennants with some Hall of Famers in the mix.
Can you say "snipe"? The $2 garage sale investment worked out OK…even if this guy or the newspaper he contacted still weren’t quite sure what they were.
