Brett Butler was a great player, no doubt about it. He ended his 17-year career with a .290 batting average and came pretty damn close to 2,500 career hits while stealing over 500 bags. Now, while those numbers may be impressive I can honestly say with a clear conscience that I have never, ever met a Brett Butler collector in my 10+ years in the hobby.
That being said, how much do you think a 1997 Flair Showcase Row 1 “1 of 1” would sell for on eBay?
A. $0. Who would want it?
B. $30 or less
D. $263.88 with 10 bids
Well, if you answered D than you were right. So, if a “1 of 1” from that set of freakin’ Brett Butler sells for that high how much would a Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, or Cal Ripken Jr. go for?
I am in shock…check the completed auction HERE.
