Nuns' unusual fundraiser: auctioning a rare baseball card
Catholic World News - October 28, 2010
In a unique fundraising effort, the School Sisters of Notre Dame will auction off a Honus Wagner baseball card on November 4, expecting to raise about $100,000.
The Honus Wagner card, which is prized above all others by baseball-card collectors, was left to the nuns by the deceased brother of a member of the convent. The rare Honus Wagner card has sold for up to $2 million.
