The Greatest Transcendent Case Pull Ever, Coming to Auction

Card breaks are all the rage, and one pulled this past New Year’s Eve is out-rage-ous. The Lelands 2020 Spring Classic Auction will feature one of the most significant Babe Ruth cards in history. Pulled in the Houdini Blowout Cards case break this past New Year’s Eve, a Ruth Bat Knob and Cut Signature Book Card from the 2019 Topps Transcendent Collection was revealed just a few minutes after midnight on January 1, 2020.

This remarkable 1 of 1 Auto Bat Knob Book Card (pictured below) is a bound two card booklet. Upon opening, on the left side is a color illustration of Babe Ruth adjacent to his bat knob, and on the right is a beautiful cut autograph signed by the great Bambino himself. Keep in mind that Ruth knob cards alone have sold for well into five figures, so this item should see much higher bids than a stand-alone knob.

Lelands is the original sports auction house and considered the premier appraisers and auctioneers in the hobby. Established in 1985, Lelands has been the auction house of choice for some of the most significant collections in hobby history. Lelands Spring 2020 Classic Auction will close on June 19, 2020.
