The seller, Mike Souza of American Pastime Investments in San Diego, was excited to be a part of hobby history. "This is simply great news for the hobby," said an excited Souza. "When I first saw this card, I knew it had a chance at making the "10" grade. There was no evidence of yellowing or print on either side of the card, which is a common condition problem for this issue. This has to be the highest price paid for a post-1952 sportscard in any grade." The buyer remains anonymous.
