Why is this selling for $599,000 when cards from the same series with the same hype are selling for $3500.

Not to impose any logical reasoning into the analysis.

I put in a snipe of 750K but I'm drawing the line not one penny more.

Seems like a tough break for the buyer trying to make his first buy on eBay with a $500,000 bid.
So those bidders will never bid on PWCC auctions ever again right?

How many people can drop a cool half mil on a card? One card.

Out of all the people on this message board how many do you think there are? Less than 10?

How is this even close to real? To think it would even be worth 100k is insanity. 1996? I mean. Ok. I bought cards in packs. The no name frank thomas isn’t even close to that price or any other big card at the time.

Donruss Elite cards, 89 upper deck promo cards. Can anyone name any other legendary cards with low pop numbers.. This is just ridiculous.

PWCC pulled it to relist Wednesday on a 7-day auction with pre-approved bidders. They couldn't see this result coming?

And even with the pre approved bidder list we already have a retraction.

I don't collect modern basketball cards, but have heard of these. Not sure why they're so popular but they all go for crazy money relative to other issues from the same time period.

I would rather have the PSA 10 Diana Taurasi rookie than this card. I think the price is beyond crazy. Hold the card for ten years and you will probably lose 95+% of your investment.
