Thumbs up Surprise in the Allen and Ginter Retail Blaster - The Babe Relic

Stopped by Walmart this evening. Was out doing some grocery shopping for the week. Decide to buy one pack, one rack, one blaster of 2013 Allen and Ginter. The Pack and the Rack were uneventful. However, the blaster was another story...

First the blaster yielded a Black Bordered Nick Saban mini..not bad, but I wanted an auto...

A couple of packs later, I saw the plastic edge and was still hoping for an autograph..and was disappointed when I saw it was a relic...until....I saw the name

BABE RUTH bat



Not a bad day grocery shopping. What do you think?

Congrats. Which Walmart? Not sure what that is worth but would have to be a homerun (pun intended) for a blaster.

Where's Jomofo to remind us all that the bat was not used by Ruth himself?

That could also be a bench card or something along those lines. Nowhere on the card does it say "bat"

True, however, on the back it states, "Game-used memorabilia of Babe Ruth"
