Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

I believe that about as much as I believe Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.

Oh yeah, not sure if you saw, but I pulled the blue Jemile Weeks plate and the Brandon Beachy super from 2012 Topps Chrome

So what happens to the capsule that he went up in? Is it space junk now? This seems like a gigantic waste of money to me...

EDIT...never mind...it's coming down now

It was entertaining. I guess we'll see what the footage from the cameras attached to his helmet and suit look like soon in 10,000 new Red Bull commercials.

Were it me, TBH,they wouldn't have gotten within 30 feet of me as I would have had 11 lbs of #@#@#@#@ around my ankles and a face screen full of vomit.
Good on him for having an incredibly large sack

I didn't even know it was happening until I saw this thread. Turned on the tube about 30 secs before he jumped.

They did a terrible job marketing this...
