Devin Grant holds the 2010 Bowman Chrome Stephen Strasburg Superfractor along with his godson, Tristan, who is his “collecting buddy.” The card previously sold for $21,403.

The 2010 Bowman Chrome Stephen Strasburg Superfractor is headed to the auction block one more time — this time it’s via Beckett Auctions.

The card originally sold for $17,403 raw in 2010 and then sold to Leaf Trading Cards for $21,403 so it could be placed into a repack product. Devin Grant pulled it from a pack and attempted a charity fundraiser in 2011 but ran into roadblocks with state laws about such a venture.

Now, it’s headed to the auction block — perhaps with a charitable twist once again. Details are still being finalized, but Grant’s famous card will be on display at the National Sports Collectors Convention this week in Chicago.

    I sincerely doubt it will do anywhere near as well as it did before.
    If it makes $10K, I’d be more than a little surprised unless it was charity thing.
    He’s a decent pitcher, when healthy, but there is no way to recover the hype factor that has been lost.
    Quite frankly, he would have needed to be Randy Johnson to live up to the hype.

    well, as long as it goes for a couple grand then he did better than he started with…if it was a best of baseball or a rookie retro pack (which if I remember correctly it was) then those sold for about $300/pack. so he’s done well already.
