Bowman Strasburg Headed for Huggins & Scott Auction

The 2010 Bowman Stephen Strasburg red autograph card that was on eBay last week was pulled and is now expected to resurface in the upcoming Huggins & Scott summer auction.

2010 Bowman Stephen Strasburg 'red' autographed cardThe owner of the card didn’t ask for pre-approved bidding when it was on eBay and after it began getting significant publicity in mainstream media outlets, some less than serious bids began rolling in.  The card was bid up to a near seven-figure amount by some unscrupulous individuals, leading the owner to pull it from the auction site over the weekend.

In the meantime, Silver Spring, MD-based Huggins and Scott hopes to capitalize on Strasburg’s popularity in the DC area–and generate some interest from the hobby–by striking a deal to sell it.

The company’s next auction begins in July and company owner Bill Huggins told Washington D.C. area media outlets that he’s getting ready to finalize the consignment.
