Good news for the Baltimore-based order of Catholic nuns who was bequeathed a Honus Wagner baseball card. They found a buyer.
Doug Walton of Knoxville, Tennessee, will pay $262,000 for the rare card which was auctioned off this week. This figure exceeded analysts expectations up to 100%.
Walton didn’t mind paying the extra dough, according to The Sporting News:
The nuns plan to put the money to good work. They plan to use it in their ministries to the poor in 35 countries.
