So my blow-hard neighbor out of the blue mentions to me yesterday that, "Oh by the way, I bought a Russell Wilson autographed rookie card the other day..."
That got my attention.
He said he paid $150 bucks for it (it's mint condition) and I immediately told him I would pay him twice that right now for that card. Darn jerk happens to be very smart when it comes to sports and especially sport player cards. He laughed and said no way. IF Russell Wilson turns into a HoFer like many of us think he will, that card will be worth plenty more than what I am offering.
So what do you think? First of all, what would YOU pay my neighbor right now for a mint condition, autographed Russell Wilson rookie card? If Russell has the career trajectory we all expect, what do you think that card would be worth when his career is over?
I hate that my neighbor is shrewd enough to buy that card. He may be a 49ers/Broncos fan but he's no dummy.
