No. 1 overall draft pick

Baseball card collecting has been pretty dead until the recent attention brought back onto the hobby through the Stephen Strasburg 1/1 eBay auction. I can not see that card adding value, but it was priceless for the hobby. $16,400+ for one card? Do you know how many great vintage cards that could have been bought for that amount? I wonder if I could purchase every Detroit Tiger card made in the last 50 or so years for that amount? I may have to check on that one. Nothing I have to worry about until I get the 1/1 Bryce Harper next year in that 2011 Bowman.
