That would be a great find. Just buried out there? Wow. 8-o

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Not sure I would pack those bags just yet... I'm calling shenanigans on this one. It just sounds too much like a columnist needing a story to meet a deadline. I did get a kick out of this though:

The owner of Helou's Sportscards & Collectables, who goes by the name Saadeh, says the card is very rare because no one was buying it during the Second World War and its production was ended.


That might be the most interesting way I've seen a comment introduced. It sounds like the guy is A) a terrorist under an assumed name B) in the witness protection program or C) has a really bad first name like Sally and refuses to use it. :-?

Plus it doesn't sound like the card dealer has a clue in hell what he's talking about when he says nobody was buying a 1952 card during WWII - duhhhhhhhhh.

Of course I was only kidding about going. :-D The article said it probably was no longer there due to previous renovations. ;-)
