Christmas comes early, thanks to a NJ physician

The Philadelphia Inquirer, December 23, 2010

Call him the sports collector who saved Christmas - at least for a group of nuns with a pricey baseball card.

On Monday, Nicholas DePace (de-PAHTCH-ee), a South Jersey cardiologist and owner of one of America's top sports memorabilia collections, stepped in at the last minute to buy a rare Honus Wagner baseball card from an order of Baltimore-based Roman Catholic nuns hoping to raise money for their ministries.

The School Sisters of Notre Dame, who had been bequeathed the 100-year-old card, thought they had a buyer last month when it sold for $220,000 at a Dallas-based auction house.
