Kris Bryant Rookie Card Already Worth $90k
Remember the days of collecting baseball cards? If you're too young for those days, there was a time when we would head to stores weekly, maybe even daily, to buy baseball card packs hoping to find a super valuable and rare card. Forget the rock-hard gum stick that crumbled in your hand (and mouth if you dared to eat it), it was all about nabbing a Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card, trading with friends and spending time looking up the values of your cards.
Well, baseball card values have bottomed out and your 1987 Topps complete set (still the coolest looking in my opinion with that wooden background) might get you $60. Only extremely rare cards matter anymore, and apparently Kris Bryant is set to amaze us again... this time with his baseball card.
There is a Kris Bryant rookie card currently on eBay for $89,999. Why is it worth so much? The card is as rare as it gets, listed as 1-of-1. That's right. It's the only one of its kind. It has a gold surface design and is a Topps-Bowman Chrome Superfractor autograph edition. For the unaware (don't feel bad, I'm in that group), collectors see that type of card as the "real deal" rookie card for MLB players.
Why did I stop trying to collect baseball cards?
