A Babe Ruth baseball card could set a new world record soon.

A Florida man who built a sports cards collection worth around $20 million died from COVID.

Thomas Newman left his family his 40-year stash which includes a 1933 Babe Ruth card that auctioneers believe could break the $5.2 million record.

The family will auction it off next month.

Newman's son said his dad bought the card about two decades ago for a fraction of the price and has turned down hundreds of offers since.
