The donor's sister was in this order so he left his estate to them. He's had the card in a safe deposit box with a note saying although the condition was crappy "the value of this card will increase exponentially in the 21st century". The donor had the card since 1936. Truth is still stranger than fiction.

They were small to begin with and just got a lot smaller.
