I know that we are all aware of the Strasburg Superfractor, but at the present moment it has 75 bids and is at $15,000. It has gone up 3 times since I looked earlier this evening.
I find this absolutely INSANE. I would really like to hear from some of the bidders if they stumble across this post. For this kind of money you can buy so many other things, like a 1952 Mantle, a car, down payment on a house, school tuition, etc.
Maybe there is someone out there that can explain the logic in plunking down $15,000 on this card. Though, I don't think it will make it make sense to me even if I had the money. Obviously the people that are bidding on this card have disposable cash or income that will afford them this card, and maybe because I don't have that kind of money laying around is why I don't understand this.
I collect one of the most expensive players in baseball, and even his rookie card doesn't come close to selling for this amount of money. Pujols is arguably the best player in MLB, and Pujols AUTOGRAPHED RC doesn't touch this.
What do you guys think of the price of this card? Would you ever consider spending this kind of cash on a card, prospect or PC related?
This is one of the most watched items on eBay right now so for anyone questioning the popularity of baseball card collecting or prospecting, you can rest assured this is not a dying breed of hobbies.
