How much would you pay for a 2008 Topps Heritage High Numbers Jerry Hairston chrome? A buck? Maybe two if you are Jerry Hairston Sr.? Well, this crazy eBay auction is asking for $10,000 dollars (link) all because of a myth that the card does not exist or possibly due to it being a super short print version.
Now, I know old school Topps set builders walk over the thin line between obsession and madness on a daily basis but there is no one on this planet (or beyond) who will pay that much money for a Jerry Hairston baseball card even with a $9,998 dollar winning lottery ticket attached to it.
Furthermore, the card in question is selling for .99 cents in another auction so obviously the does card exists and the seller asking for ten grand is out of his mind or needed an excuse to give eBay $5 dollars for posting the auction. Either way, for that kind of money I am almost positive I could hire Jerry to work at Wax Heaven for a week. Sure, the posts might be a little Hairston-biased but that’s another story.
