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.
