Griffin's father's invention, the Smartpick FruitsafeT picking mechanism, has endangered the family's finances. So when Griffin finds a Babe Ruth baseball card, he takes it to a collectibles shop, hoping to cash in. The proprietor, S. Wendell Palamino, declares it a knockoff and pays him just one hundred twenty dollars-only to display the card on TV the next day as one that could "break the million-dollar barrier." Furious at the injustice, Griffin assembles a group of kids with unique talents to get the card back.
