A 52 Topps Mantle has mass appeal, but it is just a common card. The documents in Memory Lane are probably unique and are from one of the most significant moments in baseball history.

Only if you care about that moment. I would guess most fans do not.

Film footage of the kid telling Mr. Jackson, "Say it Ain't So, Joe"! Of course, it's silent and uses intertitles, but still....

Ok, I'll play...the way it's being hyped up, it's gotta be something like...

Ruth Red Sox Uniform
Joe Jackson Uniform
PSA 10 1952 Topps Mantle

I was thinking the uniform Jackie wore in his debut.

Based on the wording I don't think this would be a card.

It seems like it would have to be linked to both a player (or possibly a person who is not an athlete) and an event that has great significance.

For the player to matter enough they would have to be transcendent, so there's not a huge list:

Ruth, Gehrig, Jackie Robinson and maybe a couple others in baseball, Jordan in basketball (don't think anyone else comes close), don't think anyone in football or hockey is there. Boxing has Ali. Not sure anyone in golf matters that much. Anyone in the Olympics?

Beyond that there could be non-sports personalities although I can't think of too many options right now. Maybe the golf equipment used on the moon?

If he is saying truthfully it's the most valuable, then it's already sold at least once, and that makes it the Ruth uniform. Otherwise no way to know.
