This Is Just Insane

I haven’t written about Stephen Strasburg on this blog yet, and frankyl, I wasn’t planning to, but after seeing the price that his 1/1 autograph is now at, I can’t not write about this.

I mean think about it, this card has just become the second most expensive baseball card in history, behind the Gretzky Honus Wagner card, and its quite possible this Strasburg card surpasses the Wagner card when all is said and done, and that’s just insane! To think a rookie whose only pitched in 3 games, with a record of 2-1, has a baseball card worth more then a Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, and Hank Aaron combined!

And there’s still 3 days and 22 hours left! who knows how much more it will go up in that time.

A little side note most people forgot about, the seller listed this card with a buy it now of 50,000 and no one jumped at it, and now look at what its at!

The whole thing is just insane to me…



  1. I swear to god, this is some sort of dream, this can’t be happening, have the Aliens landed, is Elvis still alive. This is almost like 9/11.

  2. I know exactly what you mean john, it just doesnt seem real, it has to be a hoax…somehow

  3. NO way is that a legitimate bid.

  4. When all is said and done, you have to wonder how many of those bids are honest bids?

  5. Too many repeat bids and low feedback bidders. The seller was not smart, as for something this big, he should have put it on approved bidders only. This card is gonna go unsold, and it will be up again soon. That, or the seller is working with someone. THere’s always the possibility that he’s going to fake the sale at this high of a price, and through another person, sell it. After this high of a “sale”, he could be looking to sell it again, making it actually sell for ALOT more.

  6. Thats a good point, I wonder how he’ll sell it then if the ebay auction isnt legit then
