There used to be a seller on eBay that had some of the most unbelievably outrageous eBay prices on cards that you could possible imagine. I ran a thread for a while where we documented those, but eventually the seller disappeared from eBay.

I thought I would revive the idea though and showcase some of the more unbelievable auctions/Buy it Nows that I could find. These will include cards that actually sell for prices that will blow your mind, and cards that are listed with Buy it Now prices that are incredibly unrealistic.

So, here's my first installation.

eBay Auction (Item number: 350425775987)

This is an absolutely gorgeous card, but notice that it is ON SALE for 50% off. The original listing price was $1501.00. HA HA! Even now at $750.50 no one will ever buy this card. EVER. Also, if you're the lucky purchaser of this overpriced card, you get to pay $12.00 shipping!!!

So, what do A-Rod 1/1 Auto/GU really go for???

Well, no one really knows because no one lists an A-Rod 1/1 auto as a live auction anymore. Instead they are all listed with super high Buy it Now prices that no one will pay. A completed auction search on eBay yields only one closed listing where the card actually sold. That was a 2006 Bowman Originals Buy Back A-Rod auto hand-numbered 1/1. It sold for $142.50. There are Topps Triple Threads Triple Jersey White Whale 1/1 Autos that are listed with BIN for $425.00 that did not sell. I'm guessing market value for an A-Rod 1/1 Auto, even one as nice as the 2004 Diamond Kings listed above is less than $200.

Holy Cow!!! I have this ball sitting on my book shelf at the office. I had no idea it was this valuable. It's even worth that much at 30% off. Man, I've been sitting on a gold mine.
