Watch One Lucky Collector Take Possession of a Once-in-a-Lifetime Football Card
The card in question really needs no introduction. We wrote about it here on The Knight’s Lance back in late August when the final autograph needed to complete the masterpiece finally arrived. The lucky collector who owned the card, however, might need more of a formal intro. His name is Arturo Vargas, a longtime collector who has a penchant for higher-end products and a lucky streak when it comes to group breaking.
That’s how Vargas originally obtained the redemption for perhaps the most coveted of all the Treasure Chest booklet cards that appeared in last season’s 2015 National Treasures Football. Once the card — featuring autographs from Joe Montana, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Terry Bradshaw, John Elway, Brett Favre, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, Joe Namath, Drew Brees, Steve Young and Roger Staubach — was ready to be redeemed, Vargas couldn’t wait to take possession. In the video that follows, he does just that.
