Default Stephen Strasburg 1/1 Red autograph card sells for $17,000

Stephen Strasburg 1/1 Red autograph card sells for $17,000
July 28, 2010, 10:29 pm



The premiere Stephen Strasburg card from 2010 Bowman — his 1/1 Red autograph — sold for $17,000 (not including any additional fees) after 10 bids Wednesday evening in an auction that ran for a good portion of this month with Huggins and Scott.

The Silver Spring, Md.-based company’s auction of the card opened at $9,000 after it was found by a collector in Florida who initially opted for an eBay auction that ended with plenty of bad bids.

The card jumped from $12,000 to $17,000 on its final day, prompting overtime in the auction. It had been set to end at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time but ended at 11:30 p.m. Eastern as interested bidders were allowed extra time if they remained interested if a bid was placed late.

The card came up short of the highest price paid for a Strasburg card from 2010 Bowman, though this card’s status as a 1/1 autograph clearly trumps the other card.

The Strasburg SuperFractor from 2010 Bowman has been sold twice since it was discovered — on eBay for $16,403 and to Razor Entertainment’s Brian Gray for $21,403.

No way the Superfractor is worth $21,000 anymore.

You are right! BUT, Bank of America isn't worth $3/per anymore either. You and I both know the risks of a card like that.

Two different people bought this card, I think the original purchaser saw it as an investment, he did pretty well in a short amount of time. The other buyer happens to need advertisement for a new product, I think having that card in the product has done well for the product. I do agree with you, the value has dropped, but maybe a good time to buy? lol

This comment isn't intended to be negative in any way...

...What do you think the Superfractor will bring at auction once it's pulled from Razor Rookie Retro? $15,000? $7500?

That's a very good question, and probably one that will be answered!

Maybe it's me, but I would way rather have the Red... than the super.

I think both buyers of the SuperFractor are winners. The first made his $5k and got plenty of publicity. Brian also got plenty of publicity for it and the value of having that card in the new product certainly added to it's price point and sales. Whoever finds it and auctions if for $7-10k will also be a winner.

Isn't it nice when everyone wins?

IF he's on the DL/not pitching/not pitching well then it will sell pretty low....but I doubt that the person who pulled it would sell if that was the case.

The problem with the Stras auto auction is that it was on a site that gets probably 1/1000000 of the traffic that eBay does. Sure...the people who were really interested in getting it could find it there...but im sure the reason the Stras super sold so well the first time was there was a lot of "riff raff" bidding it up who had no intentions of buying until the winning bidder stepped in. Hard to say tho. Too many factors involved in this to say that the card should sell for more than the last buy price....since the guy who pulls it won't likely be into it for more than a few grand max for the boxes or a case.

That was just plain stupid. I'd have offered the auto to Grey for $25 grand right after he got the other 1/1. After he paid $21 grand for the superfractor that would have to seem like a steal plus it gives him another huge selling point for his next release.

It is rumored that there was a buyers premium on the card and that the sale price to the winner was like $20K. I don't think thats a figure that will make the Super less valueable. Remember...chrome is king lol.

Yeah, Huggins and Scott charges a 17.5% buyer's fee on their auctions, so the price including that looks like it was $19,975.

So the auction house made out amazingly... almost $3k on the buyer's fee, plus probably another $1-2k on the seller's fee.

all these prices will be justified in 20 years so long as IF he remains healthy, IF he wins 300+ games, IF he ends his career with an era under 3 and IF he goes down as one of the top 5 pitchers that ever lived. That is a lot of if's if you ask me, I wont worry about the ridiculous strasburg prices, I will focus on players who already made there mark and are a sure thing.
