Not Strat related but if you are a collector this is insane.

Not only do we pay twice but we only get to keep him a couple months. LOL

Even if I had that kind of silly money I would be too afraid to put that much money in something perishable like a baseball card. A tornado, fire, heck with my luck those aliens would come back hunting for their crashed space ship and crash in to my house obliterating my 5.2 mil baseball card.

If you're laying out all those sheckles for something like that,

I assume it's going into a lockbox somewhere.

I like how our conversation has evolved into where it is best to keep our $5m baseball card. :lol:
