Stephen Strasburg Rookie Card on Ebay
There is a Stephen Strasburg rookie card selling on Ebay for $260,000.00. Let me say that again… there is a Stephen Strasburg rookie card selling on Ebay for $260,000.00. That folks is absurd. This is America fanaticism at it’s finest, ride him while he’s hot this card is only going to go down in value. I came across the card on Ebay this afternoon and the highest bid was $140,000. Three hours later it’s gone up over a hundred grand. With four days left on this auction there’s no telling what it will go for.
What do you think this is going to sell for? What would you have done if you’d opened this card? So there you have it, two posts on Stephen Strasburg in a row, I’m really hoping this guy truly pulled the card from a pack and didn’t trade for it from some kid who could have paid for college and bought a house while he was at it.
Rock on folks, baseball cards are interesting again.
UPDATE - Card is now selling for over $750,000!
