Are You Shitting Me? A Playing Card Sold For $2.1 Million.

Are You Shitting Me? A Playing Card Sold For $2.1 Million.

$2,105,770.50 for a piece of cardboard with a Pittsburgh Pirate on it. Not even someone from a winning franchise. It’s the fucking Pirates. I understand the hype and obsession around collectors items, it’s really cool when only 50 of something is in existence, but to get over 2 mil for it? Shit, I think I have a shiny Charazard card from pokemon somewhere in my attic. Can I become filthy rich for that? Better yet, if a Pittsburgh Pirate card can get Joe Shithead millions of dollars I have a Tim Couch rookie card on the Cleveland Browns to sell. Selling a piece of thin cardboard for 2 mil. Only in America.

Best part about this story is that the bro was already rich and a savvy investor. Why can’t some guy in debt who’s doing some spring cleaning find a rare card? Why can’t, say, a cynical blogger who gets jealous of the rich getting richer find a million dollar card? I’m not jealous. Just, you know. Fuck that guy.

p.s. Snooped around my attic after reading this story. How many billions of dollars are Garbage Pale Kids cards worth now? 5 bill? 100 bill???
