    There are still Bonds collectors, and how many Topps 1/1 autos does he have? $1000 may be a little higher than I would have guessed, but prices on 1/1s can be very unpredictable.

    I was also leaning towards set collector at first because the set is pretty popular, but a Bonds collector wound up winning that card.

    If it's a Topps Master Set collector, absolutely.


    But as mentioned, i guess it was a Bonds collector.

    Sorry for expressing my opinion.

    people still collect McGwire, Palmiero, Sosa, Gonzalez. Why not Bonds?

    Especially when I'm sure several collectors of his have 10s of $1,000s already invested, why stop now?

    His certified Auto's from 2006- on still get good money. The ones that came out while he was breaking the records still rarely pop up

    LOL! That's my friend's auction from here in Japan. Mr. Nishino is a really cool guy.

    What a beautiful autograph. He really puts some effort into signing his name and for that, I respect him a little bit.

    That is a supremely awesome autograph set, and a 1/1 Finest superfractor to boot. $1,000 seems cheap actually. God I wish Oswalt had an autograph in the set. I guess I will settle for this:

    His signed ginters go for crazy amounts because of set collectors. I gues that's why alot of the Topps and bowmans Certifieds still go through the roof
