2010_stephen_strasburgHey, anyone have $10,500 just lying around?

You do? Well, then you could be the top bidder on this crazy-nuts eBay auction for the only Stephen Strasburg(notes) “Superfractor” card in the 2010 Bowman Chrome set.

But if you actually have designs on owning the card, you better go back to diving for dimes in your couch cushions. That’s because $10,499 was the auction price as of this post time and there are still almost five days left in the auction. The price will only go up and could approach or pass a new Kia Sportage territory.

A poster on Freedom Cardboard says he’s the lucky collector and Blowout Cards is running a contest to guess the final price of the ultra-scarce card of the Washington Nationals pitcher who hasn’t even been called up to the big leagues, let alone experienced any success there.

It looks like the boys and girls over at the Topps company have come out with another great product ending the year of 2009. On  Nov. 11, Topps introduced a new product “Topps Tribute Baseball 2009.” Of course this line will bring the great names of baseball’s future, present and past to today’s collector on the most striking card technology in the industry, the detail is superb and the card stock is of the utmost quality.

This product sells for around $230 a box. Each box will contain six packs with each pack holding five cards. Each box of Topps tribute will have three autographed relic and three relic cards numbered to 99 or less. Check out the rip party to see for yourself all the sick hits and great memorabilia!

  • 3 autographed relic cards per box
  • 3 relic cards per box numbered to 99 or less

After a five-year absence, Topps has revived its Topps Tribute line for 2009 with every pack including an autograph or Relic card.

We’ve gotten our boxes in at Beckett HQ will in advance of Tribute’s Jan. 7 street date, and will have a Box Busters video shot sometime in the coming days (hectic holiday schedules permitting).

But until then we’ll let you examine the contents of a box busted off camera — one that did indeed deliver a hit per pack as well as three base cards and a parallel card in every one.

The base set consists of 100 cards — 83 retired legends of the game, 14 veterans and just three rookies and will includes parallels — Reds (1/1s), Golds (/50), Blacks (/99) and Blues (/199). It also will include Framed Printing Plates. You can read more about the product and see the preliminary checklist by clicking here.

After the jump, you will find scans of 18 cards — the notable half of the box — along with the in-box checklist, which you can compare to the preliminary checklist. (Not much appears to have changed based on a very quick glance.)

It’s worth noting that these high-end cards (suggested retail price is $50 a pack) will be condition sensitive because of their holographic surface. Several cards came out of packs with smudges and/or scratches— some of which may rub off (but we didn’t try it).
