Fogel’s baseball treasure trove on display for All Star Game

Tomorrow morning, on July 10, an armored truck is scheduled to travel from an undisclosed bank vault to the Rally Hotel at McGregor Square, just across the street from Coors Field in downtown Denver.
An armed Denver SWAT team will escort the vehicle’s precious cargo inside, where it will be taken to an exhibition space called the Hall of Legends.
It will be very carefully placed inside a specially designed display case that has previously held the Jefferson Bible and the inkwell used by Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee to sign the armistice at Appomattox.
Expert appraisers will be on hand to publicly state the value of the rarity. They can be expected to say that its estimated worth is at least $25 million.
Throughout its period of public display, only from July 10 to 12, the artifact will be kept under the watchful eye, 24/7, of the Denver Police Dept. and other security experts.
So what is the item in question?
