And The Winner For Hardest to Pronounce Rookie Names Is...

The Chicago Cubs. The two cards below are from the recently released Topps Heritage High Numbers set. The first is RP7 Rookie Performers Jeff Samardzija and the second is FB5 Flashbacks Kosuke Fukudome. OK, so Fukudome is not a real rookie since he played for nine professional seasons in Japan, but since he is a rookie according to MLB, I'll include him as well. The PA announcer probably had to put in some extra work in the offseason!

You Paid How Much For a Common?

The demand for certain common cards never ceases to amaze me. Take this 1962 common that recently sold on ebay. Granted it is a mint vintage card and graded by PSA, but wow! The seller did not even list the name of the player or the number of the card in the auction title, and it still went for a nice chunk of change. Make sure to check out the description too, it's good for a laugh.

A Piece of Yankee Stadium History

This has to be one of the coolest stadium seat cards I have ever owned. And now that Yankee Stadium is no more, it is even cooler.

How Far Would You Go For Vintage Cards?

Hopefully not this far! According to an article on Sports Collectors Daily, a 28 year old man was arrested and sentenced to prison for attacking a sports card dealer in Pennsylvania with a crowbar and stealing $47,000 worth of cards. He was out of prison on parole from a previous offense at the time. And you thought overgraders on eBay were bad!

Would You Pay $1 Million For This Card?

I ran across this auction and it truly amazed me. Granted, this card is autographed, but I'm thinking $1 million may just be a little high for this particular card. The description is good for a few laughs though, and be sure to check out the questions/answers below the description. They may give you a few laughs as well. So what card would command a million dollar asking price? Take a look for yourself and decide how much you would be willing to pay for this card. There is a "Best Offer" option!
