shockingly so at times.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Ultra-RARE-Authentic-Shawn-Harper-Card-Autograph-/220686122106?pt=US_Football&hash=item3361eafc7a#ht_500wt_949

a 'rare' autographed football card (unauthenticated, not released by one of the reputable card companies) of a retired offensive lineman who played exactly three seasons in the early 90's...

the buy it now is set for $1 million dollars, but that's not the funny part (though it is funny). the funny part is that 19 people have sent offers (obviously less than a million dollars).

the card is absolutely, literally, worthless (as in, has no worth. worth less than the cardboard it's printed on). it's a card of a scrub that some schlub scratched an auto on with a sharpie and he's convinced quite a few morons that it's worth more than a dollar at least (that's the minimum you can offer if memory serves).

PT barnum was absolutely correct: there is a sucker born every minute, and I'm glad this guy will likely fleece some idiot out of some serious cash. an item, theoretically, is worth what somebody will pay for it. bravo, guy. bravo.

A card is worth what you can get out of it.

I wouldn't pay a million dollars for it, but per the ebay listing it's "ultra rare".

you'll note that I said exactly that in the opening post.

I'm just astounded that (now 20) people have actually taken the bait, and he's had the balls to reject 19 of them.

ROFL

and I have some 'super rare' pocket lint, fwiw. it's not worth $1 million, but I guess now I can try to get that much. wonder if I'll have any takers?

I bet most of the offers are for less than a dollar.

hell, he's making out like a bandit at that.

I'm still absolutely astounded and intrigued by this. maybe I can try to sell some old commons, slap a fake auto on them, label them as 'ultra rare,' and make five bucks apiece off of them...

I think I'll bid on it. I need a card I can clothespin to my bike frame so it'll make a motorcycle noise when the spokes strike it.

That would be I repeated the concept.

I'm astounded there's a Sam Bradford card on there that is up to 6,600 bones. That's fucking nuts. Who buys this shit?

What do you mean how stupid are people? You think they are offering 20k for the card or something?

Instead of buying a worthless piece of cardboard, buy 660 playoff tickets and give them away so it's closer to 50% rams fans

Well, the EJD was packed on Sunday. Assuming the Rams make the playoffs, it should be 90% Rams fan.

Who would you rather play in the playoffs?

It's probably going to be the Saints or Falcons. The Rams lost badly in New Orleans and lost to Atlanta(which was for the most part a close game). I'd rather face Atlanta at home since Atlanta is a different road team. In order for that to happen, though, they'd have to lose this week to the Panthers at home.

Okay, it's a definitely. The 2nd place team in the NFC South will face the winner of the NFC West.

Cinemark (the maker of the card) is a movie theater chain. That makes it even more rare.

It's probably the only one of its kind because all the others were thrown in the trash. Brilliant !

Auction is for Ultra RARE Authentic Shawn Harper Card with his Autograph on it. Shawn was known as the strongest Offensive Lineman on the Indianapolis Colts at his time. He was able to pop soda cans with his bare hands and bend steel pots and pans. This card is extremely rare as Shawn is no longer playing football. What you see in the picture is what you will get. There is one card only. I have made the picture show both sides of the card. The condition of this card is perfect and uncirculated. Free shipping is for priority mail insured. Thanks
