Mystery at the Babe Ruth Museum (and Solution!)

Did you hear that the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum in Baltimore has had quite the mystery on their hands? They recently discovered that their 1914 baseball card of icon Babe Ruth was worth considerably more than they had expected... $500,000! The museum wants to make the card a centerpiece of a new display but needed to track down the owner of the card, who lent the card to the museum over 12 years ago. Donor forms, Facebook and Google searches, even the Yellow Pages resulted in nothing. Would a newspaper article help find the mystery man?

Find out more in part one here!

And the mystery man is uncovered here!
