Amazon Starts Selling Sports Memorabilia; Babe Ruth Cards Only $35,000!

From a $4 Wayne Gretzky trading card to a $34,950 Babe Ruth autographed baseball, Amazon has started to offer more than two million items in a new Sports Collectibles Store launched today. The store’s emphasis will be on authenticity, with professionals vouching for the source and condition of products. The e-commerce giant was rumored to be setting foot into the sports category, but this doesn’t seem to be it. Possibly on Amazon, or through its Quidsi division, the retailer is also planning to get into outdoor-sports apparel and merchandise.
