How exciting. I did not even know that this card existed.
So there were two of these that just showed up on Ebay, and I jumped on both. I had never seen them before. The cards were being sold by different sellers. The first one I got for $3, then this one for $12. I assumed that the low price was just because of the lack of interest in A-Cab, the brand and the fact that most people didn’t know the card existed. The cheaper card was kind of a mess when I got it–the autograph had bubbled when Cabrera signed it. I was worried the other card would look the same, but its perfect.
I would buy these cards all day…but the weird thing is that I have not seen any other show up on Ebay. I looked at past listings, and nothing. I have no idea what the deal is. Were they redemptions? Did he only sign a couple? I know that he is not a fun guy to work with, so i could see him just signing a few and then calling the day. I don’t know. I have a search set up, but I am not getting any hits.
Happy to add this card, though. Asdrubal is still annoying as hell to have on your team–he is hot and cold at the plate, his defense is overrated and he is near impossible to get in person. Still, he is a 100 OPS+ shortstop in a league that does not have many.
