Default Is this for real?

Someone please explain to me how this can be an $84 card? What does that make my blue and black versions worth?

there may be 30000 of those made, but how many have you seen for sale? zero, that right, none. only 3 juan collectors have them, and Mike got his from me. when you add to the fact that it also has Pudge, Canseco, and Will Clark, it makes it a rare piece as those guys still carry a large following in the collector market. 30000 were made and distributed. more than half were left under the seat at the game. 10000 went home and ended up in a closet or a trash can. the bottom line is it has not been listed on ebay in my 11 years of looking. the Skybox auto has been on dozens of times. i also find it interesting on how you find little value in cards you dont have but want to over value the cards you have several of. I agree that $84 is a little too much for the skybox card. But I also know that I just sold one of the two extras I have of the rangers giveaway for $35 cash. Not bad for an item that has 30000 copies.

The bottom line is that there are about 20 of us seriously collecting Gonzalez. With a print run of 50 there should not be serious bidding. The exception is when a new collector goes on ebay and has more money than brians. Eventually the new bidders run out of money. We have all seen this over time. I can see a competitive bidding war for items 10 or less. When you see Gonzalez autographs with a print run of 25 the bidding is never going to be $84.
