    Judging by what the atomic ref is going for, they are going to have to offer more.... Much more

    The red refractor auto might just fetch that much (and I think they know that). BO is lowballing juuuuust enough to keep their offer relevant.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    They can stop advertising...I pulled it from a pack yesterday afternoon. I felt like this card is something Ohtani would like to have, so this morning I put it in a penny sleeve and dropped it into a PWE addressed to the Angels' front offices.

    Seriously, though...does anyone know if this card was inserted across ALL product releases or just hobby only? We should start a pool on what it will eventually be pulled from (hobby/retail/blaster/jumbo pack/etc).

    No, but I wrote "do not bend" on the envelope, so I think it'll be ok.

    Supers are 100x a base auto, so we're looking at $200k+ on market value. $75k is serious lowballing.

    They know that if a long term baseball collector pulls it there is no way they'll sell it to them for such a ridiculously low price. As others have said, it's purely a marketing scheme. They're aware that it will sell more wax to people who don't generally collect or buy baseball cards cuz they'll think, "75k for a baseball card?? That's insane! And they'll buy it from me??? Damn bro, I'll give it a shot!". It's actually pretty smart of BO to do this from a marketing aspect, even if their offer is downright offensive to serious prospectors.

    I think they'll buy it via PP, request a return for item not as described and then return as empty box. Card and cash baby
