Which one of These Cards is Not Like the Other? by tolentinotown

By Andrew Tolentino | Assistant Editor

Knee deep in non-sport research, Beckett analyst Bryan Hornbeck discovered a baffling eBay listing this morning. Although the $1,000,000 listing did not sell, the most puzzling part of the eBayer-described “9 Card Collection of the Greatest in Baseball” is the eighth player selection.

Granted, every fan is entitled to a few outlying picks, and this seller even does a decent job of justifying the oddball. However, l have a feeling that hobbyists will be saying “Huh?” after seeing this audacious addition to Baseball’s best of the best.

Who did this eBay seller select? Click here to see for yourself.

HUH? Really? Kent the greatest of all time? lol
It’s a shame the seller didnt sell this set. He could have used some of that million to pay for some spelling lessons.

This seller is a little shady on his auction. If you look at his feedback as a buyer, in the past 90 days of viewable feedback and view item he has bought a lot of old reprints. Two of them are the 1949 Leaf Babe Ruth and one 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle the same two cards in his auction.

I agree with the seller Hrbek belongs in that group. He has two more rings than Ted Williams and one more than Hank Aaron and Shoeless Joe.
