Wow, and here I thought Jose was hated among many of today’s collectors. It’s clear that Jose Canseco is as popular today as he was in the late 80’s and early 90’s, maybe even more so! This card is a 2004 Topps and features another player who I can’t make out but it’s obvious it’s the original “40-40 Man” that is the one driving up the prices of this autograph #’d to 13. It’s currently got over 15 bids and stands at $250+ with over a day left in the auction.
Also, on a completely unrelated subject, tonight the Marlins are playing the bottom-dwelling Washington Nationals and Wax Heaven is going to be there with camera in hand. Stay tuned for lots of photos of Ryan Zimmerman, Austin Kearns, the Infamous Tatiana in her Astros’s cap, and many of the Marlins players, including our own superstar, Dan Uggla.
