I was willing to pay $3,051.00 and thats 6 times over beckett. Some of his cards beckett is way under and others there way over. This is one of those way over cards.

That card had absolutely no where to go but down, no matter what he did. The only great example I can think of where such a hyped rookie card continued to grow in value is the Albert Pujols Bowman Chrome.
