But other than anecdotes, I don't think anyone really knows or even has an educated guess.
Seems like someone has an ungraded one and knows of two others. I guess that means there are many ungraded. Ok. I'm convinced based on that. Again, not saying it's wrong. But we can all speculate.

How about if it were just as tall, but thinner like a Namath rookie? Or does it need to be small like a T206, but no bigger than a 52 topps? Does it need stats or bios on the back? Are blank-backs "cards" in your opinion? How about redemption cards with coupons that were to be traded for ice cream? Does it need advertising, or does it have to come with gum or tobacco to be a card? With bread? With candy? In a magazine? In packs of hot dogs? Do you consider T3's to be cards? Stahl Meyer (oversized)? Or what about Old Judge Cabinets? Are those "cards?" Please tell me what a baseball card is. I thought it was cardboard images of players which were distributed to the public.
Could it be a blank backed postcard? The debate over what a card is will never be settled because it can't be...

Well the latest Gehrig exhibit rookie, a SGC 60, (5), just sold at LOTG for the sum of $82,419. I guess there's no dought that his card prices are holding for real
