Default Luis Robert 2018 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Superfractors

Okay, somebody clue me in.

2018 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs #CPALR Luis Robert Superfractors Signed Rookie Card (#1/1). BGS Gem Mint 9.5/BGS 10. Lot #182 in Goldin's recent Summer Premium Live and Catalog Auction, which closed 8/10/19.

Final price $50,400 including premium.

What is so special about Luis Robert, and/or this card, that it went for just about $1,000 less than a '52 Topps Mantle in the same auction? (Lot #97, 1952 Topps Mantle, PSA Ex-Mint 6, final price $51,600.)

Makes the $16,000 someone paid for that 2010 Steven Strasburg card seem like a bargain price. (At the time of the sale, Strasburg had yet to play in a single Major League game.)

Some people have too much money. (Unfortunately, I'm not one of them... anybody wanna buy a Thumbs Down Guy bobblehead?)
