It's great that the guy recognized something different and interesting about that bat. Otherwise, it might have been lost.

I'm sure we can make quite a few relic cards out of that one!

In all seriousness though... great find!

That's just NASTY! I immediately visualized the bat in a million pieces.

If these prices aren't right off side then I'd say he is into some decent money!

A similar bat that sold for $1900 was auctioned at REA in the spring of 2009---when the economy was pretty weak! This one ought to bring considerably more.

Right now, untold numbers of people are pouring over every single known picture of Pie Traynor looking for a photo match.

My best find was last month in Maine...an 8-panel uncut sheet of 1957 Topps cards.
