Default $3 for a 1914 Baltimore News Babe Ruth pre-rookie card?

Or at least a piece of it. Anyone considering buying in?

"A 1914 Babe Ruth pre-rookie minor league baseball card valued at $6 million will soon be available for purchase in three-dollar increments."

If you read the fine print, you don't actually own any part of the card, you own an investment vehicle tracking the card value, supposedly.
But it's basically as real as the Facebook ads where you buy a 1sqft of land in Scotland and become a Lord... ;-)

I suppose they could turn out to be legit in the long run, but all these ads I increasingly get on social media offering to make me a fractional owner of a PSA 9 Aaron RC or something like that just seem like a huge waste of time. So I have to pay you something, but I never get to see or touch the card? I guess you have to have a lot stronger investment mindset in cards than I do for that to make a shred of sense.
