A $10,000 Football Card

            Last February, a man in central Michigan was cleaning out his farmhouse. He found an old card and started to throw it away. He reconsidered and decided to take it to a sports memorabilia shop in Kentwood, Michigan.
            It was a good thing that he did. The Mayhill Tobacco Works Company of Richmond, Virginia manufactured the card in 1894. The card was of Harvard College football player, John Dunlop. Today it is considered to be “the holy grail of football cards.” And it is valued at nearly $10,000.
            Paul writes to the Ephesians that there is a treasure that is obscure to most people in the world, but it is of supreme value to those who see from a heavenly perspective: 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe (Eph. 1:18-19a.) NIV 1984
