Bowman Cards From the Grave

Found a couple of unique box break videos on youtube. If you have been around card collecting for a while, you have probably heard of Jefferson Burdick and are somewhat familiar with Mr. Burdick's story. But if you are not familiar with Jefferson's story, he is considered by many to be the original card collector. He created the American Card Catalog which gave names to many of the sets that we know today, including my personal favorite, the T206 set from 1909-1911. Jefferson passed away in 1963 is buried in central New York. Stalegum made a trip to Jefferson's grave site to film a live box break. I'm not a huge fan of box breaks, but this is definitely an interesting twist on the "traditional box" break video.
