A Baltimore-based group of religious sisters is auctioning off a rare baseball card to raise support for the community’s missions to the poor.
A member from Baltimore’s School Sisters of Notre Dame received the highly valued card featuring Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Honus Wagner in her deceased brother’s will.
Sister Virginia Muller told the Associated Press (AP) that the slightly damaged card of Wagner, one of only 60 that exist, was bequeathed to one of the sisters in a safety deposit box with a typewritten note explaining its value.
"It just boggles your mind," Sr. Muller said. "I can't remember a time when we have received anything like this."
