Starasburg rookie card going for $10,499 online.


Steven Strasburg hype may be the closet thing to Tim Tebow mania. Neither have yet to make their debut on the big stage of professional sports, but it hasn't stopped media and fans from obsessively monitoring their every moment.
The piéce de résistance in the Strasburg case may be the current e-bay auction involving the one-of-a-kind Strasburg Bowman 2010 Chrome "Superfractor" card. The bidding for the card is as of 1:15 p.m EST 5/25/2010 is $10,499.00. This for a pitcher who has yet to play a single game in the Bigs.
If anything this card shows why baseball cards are fading from relevance in America. Cards are being made that kids can only dream of having. It's become too much of a hobby for adults.
