TMZ: Rob Kardashian Owns Rare Expensive Honus Wagner Autographed Baseball Card
Rob Kardashian reportedly became the proud owner of the super-rare Honus Wagner autographed card and he was not even expecting it. Here's how he got his hands on it.
"Keeping Up With The Kardashian" star Rob Kardashian is not only famous because of the show, but he is also known for his high-end sports card collection. Apparently, his collection just got bigger and better.
According to TMZ, Kardashian recently took a chance and chipped in $750 for his share of the contents of the BullPen BullChest at the L.A. based Bullpen card shop. The BullChest is loaded with valuable PSA graded cards, rare cards, or boxes of unopened cards.
A group of six people pay $750 each and split the contents of the chest. The shop selects a random order for the collectors to choose one item each and it is all about luck at that point.
Bullpen's official Instagram page shared a video of the moment when Kardashian got to make a choice. Although he was the 5th one to select, he still laid his hands on the precious item.
The reality star decided to go with a box of 2020 Topps Dynasty cards, which contains only one card. He virtually watched as the Bullpen staffer opened the box, and to his surprise, he pulled an ultra-rare 1-of-1 Honus Wagner autograph.
Some other valuable items from Kardashian's collection include the rare Justin Herbert card and Tua Tagovailoa autographs.
Kardashian was crazy with happiness. Topps got their hands on Honus' autograph and used it as the base of a card. The legendary baseball shortstop died in 1955 at the age of 81.
It was previously reported that Kardashian pulled a rare Tom Brady card that is believed to be worth more than $200,000. That was his rarest find yet, but the Honus card changed everything.
Kardashian had bought a case of 2020 Panini Mosaic Choice cards worth around $10,000 and pulled out a Tom Brady MVP Nebula parallel, something every football card collector would dream of.
After an inspection, Kardashian was told that the card is in mint condition. Some memorabilia experts reportedly said that it is hard to predict the exact value of the card, but most of them agreed that it is worth 6-figures.
"People can argue all day long what the value is, but we won’t know unless Rob decides to sell it," The Bullpen told TMZ. Only then will the speculation end. They also praised Kardashian for bringing attention to the hobby.
