Stephen Strasburg Superfractor Seller Makes $8,000 Profit
Stephen Strasburg 2010 Bowman Chrome Superfractor Serial #1/1 resold this past weekend for $25,000 on ebay. Though I do believe it is crazy to pay this much money for a card of a player who has only pitched 4 games in the Major Leagues I do have to give credit to the original buyer of the card who paid $16,000 and made an approximate $8,000 profit.
The sad part is that when the hype wears off now matter how great Stephen Strasburg may become the card will devalue as most cards like this do.
Someone paid $4200 for an Ubaldo Jimenez Superfractor Serial #1/1 this past week. He's had a great season but has anyone noticed the last 2 games that his ERA has jumped. Maybe a miracle can happen and he can win 30 games. All I can say to that is who owns Denny McLain cards and what are their value?
Buy the cards because you love the hobby and not because you want to make a quick buck in most cases unless you make an $8,000 profit right away.
