2010 Topps Update Babe Ruth Cut Signature /1

A Kansas collector had the pull of a lifetime in December when he opened a few packs of 2010 Topps Update Baseball. Inside the $2.00 pack was a 1/1 cut autograph of Babe Ruth.
The local NBC news station in Topeka, KS - KSNT - did a writeup and video on the remarkable card on their website.  There are 10 total 1/1 cut autographs available in 2010 Topps Update and the other big ones are fellow Yankees legends Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Here are some previous sales of Babe Ruth autograph items - KSNT estimates the card to be worth $5,000-7,000.
