In case you haven’t seen it yet, this card is on eBay with over 3 days remaining and is north of the $10,500 mark. This has to go down as one of the highest selling non-autograph / memorabilia cards of the current generation. I really do think this is insane because of all the potential bad that can happen. The last prospect that was even close to what Strasburg has is Mark Prior and we all know how well that went.
Dropping car money on a card seems a little far fetched for me, but apparently there are many out there willing to drop that kind of coin. This could be the single greatest investment or the most expensive lesson ever learned about prospecting. What is your take on it? How much do you think it’s worth. For me I would have said $1500 tops.
