The cards are “rare and irreplaceable,” Trencher, 55, a prime backgammon participant, mentioned in his litigation.

“Are you serious? He filed a case against me in Manhattan Supreme Court?” mentioned the incredulous Ivanick, a lawyer and mom of three, when The Post requested in regards to the allegations.
Ivanick insisted her son gave the cards to her as a present within the mid- Nineteen Nineties.
“I was a big fan of Satchel Paige. I’m in my 80s and still enjoying them,” she mentioned of the cards, noting she retains them in protecting acrylic holders, locked in a secure and takes them out to have a look at them each few weeks.
“I was very pleased he was including me in his hobby, and Satchel Paige was an iconic figure for me.”
