    I am guessing this is the red version? Well the super high end ultra market sure is strong.

    Read several articles on this but none showed which Trout rookie it is.

    Looks like modern cardboard, in some instances, is the place to be. Someday it will be vintage.

    Dude this guy killed it.

    I get it most will call him the hater term D Bag but you got to give him props for crushing it. Amazing foresight.

    When you put your money where your mouth is and win that is cool in my book.

    Hopefully he put the right SSN down on the paperwork this time. 😉

    For a mere 5K the buyer could cross over to PSA. Nope, it's a 9...................

    And to think.... that could have been any person, on this message board now, that could have pulled that card from a 2dollar / 80 buck box at the time. Pretty freaking cool !!!!

    Fun is in modern. Boring is in vintage.

    I read an article where he is quoted as saying 3 million.

    400k and 3 million are very far apart.

    Not sure the number but obviously he absolutely killed it.

    One thing you can attest to in modern is a lower buy in for a potential hit such as the card featured here. At least at time of original issue price. Somewhat difficult to buy a vintage pack cheaply for a high valued score, unless a 9/10 grade is nailed. And even then, in many cases, you are not looking at a $100,000.00 card unless it's a major star. But this chance comes with a high buy in wax pack price. Not too many, if any, sealed legitimate 50's vintage wax that can be purchased on the cheap. And as a bonus modern affords you the chance for a scarce insert. Each area has it's plus/minuses. There is room for all types of interest in the card collecting arena. Just my opinion.

    He certainly killed it on that. But coming up with the cash is not an easy thing to do but if you have the means, then definitely go out and buy the best that your money can get.
