Lin plays everyday. Strasburg plays once every 5.

LIN! LIN! LIN!

, keep in mind lin's cards are alot harder to get . lin only has a few base cards. and in some boxes the only shot you have at a lin card is a auto . i got a few boxes of rookies and stars and prestige and longevity not every box had a lin card. so there alot more rare .

Thank you for understanding my point. Lin seems bigger because it's going on RIGHT NOW. Strasburg Mania is like, so yesterday.

Not sure this is really true...

It might be now (as tons of Strasburgs have been released since he was coming up) but at the time how many Strasburgs were out there? A few USA ones and then the Bowman RC Auto - when Strasburgmania was in full effect I wouldn't say he had tons of cards - as Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome etc hadn't be released yet. Any idea how high the Bowman RC Auto print run is?

Lin actually has a ton of cards...people just didn't know they had them.

Obviously NT is rare - but he has RC Autos in Contenders, Classics, R&S, Prestige, Absolute, Limited, Timeless Treasures and the list goes on and on...

And that doesn't even take into account base RC's.

It's not as if Lin had one brand make his cards since he was undrafted - he had tons of RC Autos out there.

correct me if im wrong but the only base cards lin has is rookies and stars and prestige and you dont even get one in every box. the absolute is numbered to 199 and 499 ..... so good luck on that one. and everything else is a auto . so i think lins cards are far more rare then strasburg . even when bowma came out you should geta strasburg base card in every box . not the case with lin

Well if you were in the Strasburg camp you would have to agree that Linsanity has now officially blown away the Strasburg hype.

I personally think this is ridiculous, and I hope this guy doesn't get paid. Especially since it seems the guy is still shilling his auction with all the media attention he is getting. The leading bidder has 75% bid history with him. How can Ebay let this slide with all the attention this card is getting.
