The Haunting

This is the kind of story that can haunt you for a long time. Recently, a customer at my local LCS in Topeka, Jeff's Sports Cards, pulled this Babe Ruth cut autograph...which happens to be the best card from the 2010 Topps Update set:


And how great is it that it is a Boston Braves Babe Ruth card! The card was pulled from a pack in this box:


I can only think how many times I've looked at that box and passed on a pack or two. I can't really remember where I bought the last few packs of Update but it could very well be from this box. It's something I've been thinking about since hearing the news of the pull and while it's great that my local LCS has gotten a lot of well needed attention, I am haunted that I was this close to MOJO!

That's a sweet pull but lately I am losing Faith in these companies with their "big cuts" which are turning out to be fakes!

Yea, it's messed up that we even have to wonder if they are fakes. For his sake I hope it's not and he got the pull of a lifetime!
