VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A Vancouver hobby shop owner has made an amazing find. 

Steve Tingwall, the owner of Columbia Hobby, was livestreaming opening some boxes for customers when he decided to open a Panini National Treasures baseball box worth $400 – and found a Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig autograph card. 

“Once I went through all the cards, I open it up and it’s just cut autographs,” Tingwall said. “I mean, you don’t see something like that. You just don’t. I have never seen a Babe Ruth autograph in person, much less open that for the shop or for myself. It’s incredible.” 

Tingwell said he has received a couple of offers for the one-of-a-kind card already. He said it could sell between $20,000 to $25,000. 

He said he does plan to sell the card at some point to help pay for his daughter’s college education.
