I started a big debate about this when Nick Adenhart died. Stadium Club autos went from $6 to $50 in mere hours. But as I eventually realized, it's not the sellers "capitalizing" on his death, because the ones driving up the prices are the buyers, not the sellers.

I think it's more a player's cards going from the $5 bin to $25+, but like I said earlier, nothing we can do.

I know what the funny this is

Not only are there a bunch of dumbasses buying Chris Henry stuff that they can get for way cheaper in a week or two, there are also dumbasses buying up Chris Henry of the Titans stuff. Thinking they are getting "steals" on autographs for $3

I still don't understand paying more for it, especially that much more. Again, not like he was a superstar or future proven HOFer but I'm not buying so I guess it's out of my hands.
