Update: As of 10:30 a.m. on Monday, June 22, the bidding sat at $26,845 (80 bids). By Wednesday, it had topped $100,000 — most likely because of bad bids. By June 27, the auction had been canceled.

Yogi Berra would be proud.

It’s deja vu all over again as another one-of-a-kind baseball card of Washington Nationals sensation Stephen Strasburg has been re-listed on eBay and is already in brand-new-car territory.

Previously posted on the auction site with a Buy It Now price of $50,000, the 2010 Bowman Strasburg Red autograph card — only one copy made printed and signed with that color border — is sitting at $16,000 after 47 bids after the BIN option was eliminated. And there is more than a week remaining in the auction of the card discovered by a collector in Melbourne, Fla.

It’s the lone card in the product that could trump the already famous $16,403 SuperFractor purchased by accountant Robert J. Power late last month.

The SuperFractor had previously been listed on eBay with a $20,000 Buy It Now pricetag but it did not sell at that price in mid-May.The SuperFractor sale set a record for that type of card.

    Up to over 30,000 now…um wouldn’t you rather have a Babe Ruth ball or something? Just dont see it, we should have learned from the past, say Joba Chamberlain, that its a huge gamble…but to each his own i guess. I love the hobby now more than ever but it used to be fun to get rookies mega cheap and see them go up and up in value. Its just hard to swallow paying at least a $100.00 for a hot rookie auto when all it can do is go down in value in most cases…
