Today I Saw One Of The 1st Strasburg Patches Pulled

Today when I stopped at my Topeka LCS, Jeff's Sports Cards, there was a customer opening a football box and when that had been ripped he moved on to a few boxes of 2010 Topps Triple Threads. In the 2nd pack from the 1st box he pulled this Strasburg numbered 5 out of 10:


Doing some searches there haven't been any other copies out of 10 listed on eBay...and with the exception of this 1/1 White Wale version with a BIN for nearly $10,000.00 there are very few patches listed.

This was by far the most valuable card I've ever seen pulled in person and it was great to be there and see it happen first hand. If you are interested in it, you can find it listed here.

That's an amazing pull. He wasted no time getting it up on the bay.

Is it a bad scan or does it seem like there's a little bit of a bleed on the bottom of the second S?

Yeah, I would agree. The signature isn't going to be graded a 10.

That card is an orgasm of pure self indulgence. I like it.
