92,000$ for the Left View of a Stereoscopic Pair, Really?
Jason LeBlanc arrived at the Saco River Auction Co. (Biddeforrd, ME, USA) on Wednesday February 6, 2013 to buy a baseball card for his sick 4-year-old son.
He ended paying $92,000 for an 1865 Brooklyn Atlantics card, maybe one of the very first baseball cards in the world... This 1865 card of the Brooklyn Atlantics baseball team was found by a picker in Baileyville. It appears that the collector's item is not truly a one-of-a-kind treasure as a very similar card is in the Library of Congress. Each card is printed from a different negative, but the two images could be viewed together through a stereoscopic viewer, creating the illusion of three-dimensional depth from two two-dimensional images. Any chance to reunite them for a good stereoscopic 3D view?
