Outside the Lines

If you have some free time, go over to the Outside the Lines homepage and watch their segment on a collector named John Cobb and a T206 Honus Wagner that he cannot sell...or more accurately, no one will buy.

The whole back story reminds me a lot of the documentary Who the F**k is Jackson Pollock? which follows the story of Teri Horton who may or may not have discovered an unknown Jackson Pollock painting. The art world, like the elite baseball card collecting world did to Cobb, dismissed her and her painting.
