An already valuable baseball card increases its value…..
LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (AP) – It’s a valuable piece of baseball memorabilia, and it’s been sold for big bucks. SCP Auctions in Southern California says a Honus Wagner baseball card has been sold privately for $1.2 million. The card, which dates back to 1909-11, is in Good 2 condition on a scale of 1 to 10. Honus Wagner cards are considered a big deal for collectors because they’re exceedingly rare. Back then, baseball cards were distributed as part of a deal with a tobacco company. Wagner, who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, didn’t want his image used on a tobacco product, and refused permission to use his likeness. So production of his card stopped almost as soon as it started. As a result, there are only a few dozen Wagner cards known to be in existence.
May 28 (UPI) — A Pennsylvania woman scored a $1 million jackpot from a scratch-off lottery ticket just two years after collecting a $100,000 prize.
Peggy Dodson of Lancaster County told Pennsylvania Lottery officials she bought a Max-A-Million scratch-off ticket Thursday from Peterson’s Grocery Outlet in Peach Bottom and scored a $1 million top prize.
Dodson previously visited lottery headquarters two years ago to collect a $100,000 jackpot from a Family Feud scratch-off ticket she bought from the same store.
The winner said she used somewhat superficial means to decide on the Max-A-Million ticket.
“I liked that ticket because of the color purple, so it was the first one [on the roll] and it was the million dollar winner!” she said.
Dodson said she and her husband are making plans for the latest jackpot.
“We’re going to pay our mortgage off, we’ll pay our truck off and we’ll go to the Grand Canyon and Alaska!” she said.
