    Ohh how the mighty have fallen... $750 to $135

    I pulled this card back in 2003 and immediately put it on EBAY.. It sold for $750 and change..

    I bought back another one on a $200 BIN a few years later as they are a nice card to have..

    Well this one just closed.. $135.26 (Yeah, I know there are 3 roiders on here)

    I would love to pick that up for that price! Even if they are roiders, I still remember the hype on that card and it still holds a special place for me. Mostly the Mantle piece on the card.
    I collect lots of things. Things that catch my eye. If you got what I need, please let me know

    Interesting. But I wonder how many cards that are five years old now get as much now as they did when they first came out?

    LOL, I pulled the exact same card in 2003 also, sold it for $475 or somewhere in that range. I distinctly remember the ones numbered to 25 were selling in the $750 range so you got really lucky to get $750 for yours.

    EDIT: BTW this was my copy

    I remember what the price guides looked like back in 1997 - 1998 - a huge ouch from an investment standpoint. I guess the same with regard to prospecting?

    Bonds & Sosa will have that affect on a card.

    Well, 1 - it's game used. GU has taken a tremendous fall over the past 5 years.

    2 - the GU is boring GU -- plain swatches and bat pieces.

    3 - Sosa, Bonds and McGwire . . . these guys couldn't be more cold.

    I'd sell all day at $135 if I had the card.
