Buffett’s in the cards
Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway sells bricks, candy, car insurance, carpets, ice cream, jewelry, knives, paint and underwear. Many of these items are available for sale at stalls at Berkshire’s well-attended shareholders meeting every year.
In looking for something new to hawk to some 32,000 investors at the meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, this weekend, Berkshire-owned Business Wire will be selling Buffett baseball cards.
About 2,500 packs of “Berkyville Wiredcats” cards will be available. Each pack of six cards will sell for $10. The proceeds will go to Buffett’s favorite local charity, the CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska. CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, is an organization for abused and neglected children within the court system.
But will the cards come with Wrigley’s gum?
