    It gets no where near $100,000, much less $1K.

    Come on now, the card is only for the serious collector. You can't see a serious collector spending that kind of money on Pujols?

    It looke like he has three listings for the card.

    One listing is at $200.00, while the other two are at $15,000.00.

    Technically, it's only for the serious "collectible," according the the seller.

    Once he masters the art of picture rotating, I'm sure it will sell

    Re: Hank Aarons Rookie went for $100,000 - How about Pujols?

    Today's modern cards in general are just different than vintage cards in what they mean to a collector.

    The '54 Aaron was owned by hundreds of thousands of people at some point whereas maybe 1,000 people have ever owned a Pujols '01 BC RC. While I'm not saying the card is a bad or good investment, its just that the Pujols feels more like it was produced to be an investment rather than a collectible because of its limited print run.

    I also don't think '01 BC as a **set** will ever approach the collectibility of '54 Topps, partially because of '01 BC's limited print run, and partially because there are failed prospects in '01 BC that never panned out that nobody is really interested in anymore. As we know popular sets can really drive the prices of individual cards in that set, IMO '54 Topps will always be more popular.

    Its just hard to get all nostaligic and pay for a set or card you never owned or have never seen in person before even if you like the player, especially if the set was pretty much created to be an investment more than a collectible.

    So even if Aaron and Pujols wound up with identical career stats, it would make sense to me that the Aaron would always be more sought after by collectors.

    Hank Aaron also has exactly TWO cards made his rookie year.
    Not counting any oddballs that may exist, Pujols has 206 different rookie year cards.
    I will check on PSA message boards how many 1954 Hank Aarons PSA 10s exist.

    PSA 10 = 2
    PSA 9 = 20 (speculation that some were cracked and resubmitted in attempt for 10)

    Someone shared a scan too...

    Most collectors don't know the 1954 Johnston Cookies Hank Aaron rookie exists.
    It's a cool card.

    I was aware of it, which is why I said TWO
    I actually wrote ONE, but remembered before I clicked submit, and edited to TWO.
