The Babe Isn't.........

worth his weight in gold.

1996 CMG

There are 27 of these on Ebay with Buy It Nows ranging from $3.99 to $100.00.

24k gold is 24k gold.

Condition wouldn't even matter with this card on those cheaper offers because it can be melted down.

Looking at the front it looks like the Bambino is already melting, most likely from being sealed in airtight plastic for 16 years.

The case is scratched to heck but the card is good.

I like the back because of the full stats. But these eyes have no shot at being able to read them.

See what I mean?


  1. So... they're actual real gold, not gold leaf or something? For $3.99, they'd probably be worth melting down. At $1600 an ounce... MELT'EM ALL! lol.

  2. Gold plated. But still... you would think there would be enough of it to justify at least some of those prices.

    It is one ugly card though!

  3. There are a couple of silver Ryne Sandberg coins I'd like to own but I'll have to wait for the price of silver itself to drop, haha.
