Sonders hooked up with Vintage Breaks to do a little box breaking for a live stream. Sonders broke open a pack of 1981-82 Topps NBA cards and unearthed a mint condition Larry Bird.
TMZ Sports reached out to Sonders about the insane discovery.
“[My agent] Darren almost jumped out of his f-cking chair over here!
It’s fun for me just to see the joy that it brings other people and the idea that something could be worth $25,000, you know? Somebody can buy a new car with that piece of cardboard!”
It’s just mind-blowing to me.”
Here’s a front/back shot of a reprint of the Larry Bird 81-82′ card.
Leighton Sheldon of Vintage Breaks was part of the pull with Sonders and said there’s a strong chance the card could get graded a perfect PSA Gem Mint 10 and could be worth close to $25K.
So why is this Bird card so valuable? Larry’s rookie card was a split with Magic Johnson. The 81-82′ card is the first-ever standalone NBA card for “Larry Legend.”
The craziest part of the story is Sonders’ plan for the card – she giving the rare Bird to her agent for Christmas.
