Talk About Linsane Lincome ($$$)

OK, I know everyone is getting tired with the "Lin" words but I couldn't help. This really is crazy. I get the fact that he's putting up crazy numbers, plays in the biggest media market in the NBA and has tons of fans in the most populous area of the world...but how many NBA players can claim that a card of theirs is selling for more than they make per game? Jeremy Lin's salary for 2011-2012 is $762,195 (which will http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifbe prorated for the shortened NBA season, but the per game amount should be the same) which breaks down to about $9,295. As of this writing, the auction below is already over twice that amount with four days still to go! Still hasn't met the seller's reserve price either, wonder what that is.
