Default $24,999 for this card?

Posted By: TONY

Anyone want a 2007 Bowman card of Yankee wonder kid Joba chamberlain?
Saw one on ebay for $24,999

That's not a misprint

Let's see, for that much I can buy

A nice example of A

51 Mantle
51 mays
54 aaron
55 Clemente
& A 54 Kaline

Now that's a tuff choice
5 HOF'er rookie cards or a guy who's been in the majors a few weeks

Some people do indeed have more money than brains who buy these modern "rarities"

They can ask what they want to for a card but did someone actually pay that? For the record I have seen crazy prices PAID on some of the new cards though to those people we are probably the ones who are crazy....regards

It's not just autographed-It's an early example of an AUTOGRAPHED SUPERFRACTOR.

The economic reasons that a piece of cardboard with a baseball players likeness on it has some material value is the same for Joba as it is for Joss. The pre-war crowd finds the Joba stuff ridiculous; the shiny crap collectors find the Joss stuff unappealing. The same principles of supply and demand apply for both.

Lajoie's 1933 Goudey card is scarce for the same reasons that this card is scarce -- limited factory availability. The fact that one 75 years older than the other is only relevant if you think older stuff is cooler.

It's a silly hobby if you think about it too much.

...this card already projects him to be the best pitcher in history -- after 15+ IP.
