BABE RUTH SUPER CHASE AUCTION UPDATE
The first of three Babe Ruth super chase figures (read about it here) was found in mint condition in Colorado, and auctioned on eBay through Beckett Select Auctions from March 22-29. A bidding war ensued, and the winning bid was a staggering $13,600!

"Obviously we were thrilled with the results," says David Sliepka, merchandise manager for Beckett. "We knew $10,000 was likely, based on previous super chase results. What we could not gauge is how the economy would affect bidding. As it turns out with most key, short-run items recently, that was not a factor. It was truly a special item you can not find elsewhere. Beckett is proud to have been chosen to auction this historic piece."

Two additional Babe Ruth super chase figures are still out there. The hunt is on.
