Adam Lind is off to a ridiculous start this season. Great for the Blue Jays, great for psad21 who has him in our fantasy league, and even better for me and my collection. Lind is hitting over .400 up to tonights game and is just crushing the ball right now. This makes me happy, but also makes me mad.
If you look at eBay current listings for his cards and see how much people are selling them for as a buy-it-now these days, it's crazy. Even completed listings had me wondering how people are spending about $10 per card after one week of baseball. Don't get me wrong, I am cheering for him to do well but for his cards to triple and quadruple in a week is crazy. Take this card for example, the 2007 UD Exquisite quad auto that I got a while back for like $3:
Now, look at this auction... I am curious as to what the offer is, and I am going to watch this to see what and if it sells very high. Am I the only one that thinks this is nuts?
I guess now would be a bad time to see who has some of his cards laying around to fill in the gaps in my collection...
I'm thinking of a new contest, so stay tuned for that one.
