Remember last month when a baseball card — really a photo mounted on card stock, but which was copied and handed out to fans — was found at a yard sale in rural Maine was found? Well, it went to auction:
The card depicting the Brooklyn Atlantics amateur baseball club drew plenty of interest Wednesday night, starting with an opening bid of $10,000 and quickly rising to $92,000, which included an 18-percent premium. The name of the buyer was not released by Saco River Auction Co. in Biddeford.
