Like a bunch of caffeinated Wall Street brokers, the buyers and sellers of Stephen Strasburg rookie cards have been busy this week.
And it may not have been such a bad idea.
The card already has a bid in excess of what Power paid for the card just days ago. However, he’s placed a reserve on it that hasn’t been met, apparently hoping to make a much bigger score.
Sold for $8 with a limit of two, the eTopps Strasburg card orders were filled via email this morning. Many missed out thanks to the heavy demand that didn’t begin to cover the 1800 cards that were made available.
Those that did get a thumbs up from the company quickly put their cards on eBay. Several dozen were sold during the day, with prices settling between $40 and $50 each.. Not a bad return.
