There is currently a mad man on eBay trying to sell two graded 1/1 Bowman rookie cards of a guy named Elvis Andrus for a whopping $4,000! One is a 2006 Bowman Sterling Red Refractor and the other is a 2006 Bowman Chrome Super Fractor. Now while both cards are beautiful (specially the Sterling), to ask for more than $500 seems somewhat ludicrous considering Elvis is at best a singles hitter who will probably do something like 7 home runs, 50 RBI, 60 Stolen Bases, and low .300 average per year. I mean, just look at his minor league stats and tell me this guy is gonna do much of anything if and when he becomes a full-time pro. I’d say he’s well on his way to being a poor man’s Juan Pierre.
How about this…if Elvis wins rookie of the year in 2008 or 2009 I will buy each person who leaves a comment in this topic 3 packs of Bowman Chrome of whatever year he wins the award from. That is how certain I am that Elvis is not going to do much and that crazy eBay member is on some crazy drugs.
