How many 101s has Beckett slabbed?

664. Then factor in regrades. So safely I'd say 600.

Larry - perhaps. But as I understand it, there is more than one collector who owns more than one BN Ruth. Put differently, I think it's equally (if not more) likely that other than that singular example that has floated around, any others that come to market may come in a pair of examples. I'm not sure if two BN Ruths came to market in a relatively short time frame (<18 months) that they would both fetch seven figure price tags.

Hard to believe there are 14000 if only 600 are graded.

My thinking exactly, Peter. No way.

The worst example went from $150,000 to $450,000 to an asking price of about $700,000 about three years ago, all in the span of less than a decade. That's appreciation at a level of around 18% or better, compounded annually. Given the ultra-rarity of the card and its' immense significance, I have no doubt whatsoever that in a prime-time auction, an example would presently sell at seven-figures. The best one (VG+?) could easily vie with one of the PSA "10" '52 Topps Mantles for the first 8-figure card.

Best regards,

Larry

IMHO, I think that you are referring to the red PSA 1 example. There is actually an even lower condition example, but I do not think that it is graded. It has such bad back damage that part the card is actually missing. Otherwise, it is a very nice looking example. Too bad the original owner was not more careful in pulling it out of an album.

Default 1914 Baltimore News Ruth

Have always loved the prookie Ruth...If a nice one hit the market I could easily see it hitting a million. (especially since it's not my money!!)
