I sold a Vince Carter basketball for $1,200 about 10 years ago.  I'm sure the guy who bought it could only sell it for $50 now.  Whoever paid $21,000 is stupid, because the price will only go down....if Lin doesn't make the All-Star team within 5 years, that card will be worth $300

Unless he wins a championship and MVP and has a baby with Yao Mings wife (does Yao Ming even have a wife?) will that card be worth anything.

Steve Nash won MVP 2x and whats his rookie card worth? $50 tops? Lin ain't garbage.

$21500 after 10 good games is a joke, not just Steve Nash but others have years upon years of great seasons and theres aint worth jack

Yea, Yao has a wife that looks like a dude.  I'm sure there's Steve Nash rookie cards out there worth $800! But the person who paid 21K just got jipped, Lin can barely dunk the ball, he got famous cause the defenses he was playing against was wack.  People were getting a hard-on when he was scoring and driving by D Fisher who's like 40

You can't. It's just some good timing.

Scarcity. There's only 25 of these. There's tens (or hundreds) of thousands of all of the others.

" Fuckin dumbass.. Had to of been an asian lol"

if you dont see an implied insult here, im gonna have to call you a "friggin dumbass." dont worry, i didnt insult you. 

look covers, im not here to start garbage, but when some guy calls out a ethnicity, esp mine, and calls them a dumbass, imma find a way to say some garbage back. 

my original post was to give the OP some of his own medicine. no offense to htx or anyone else was intended, (until this post, because you had something stupid to say towards me)

If that asian net worth is 18 millions, you think 21k is alot?

To him, its like  a quarter that he will pass down to his son.

That tells me, he is alot smarter then you dumb darn...!

You do realize his D-league, Erie's game jersey (which he only played 1 game and had a triple-double) auctioned for over $13,000 USD, right? His practice jersey was sold for I belive around $4,000.

btw the mentioned rookie card is signed and had a piece of his GSW jersey on it too.  The guy that sold it, initially bought it for $1000, right after the Linsanity started, now he is netting over 20 Gs.
