As soon as phenom pitching prospect Steven Strasburg was drafted No. 1 overall by the Washington Nationals, baseball fans were awaiting the next Gibson or Ryan to take the mound.

As time went by in the minor leagues, Strasburg dominated the competition and a move to the majors became a reality for him.

Finally the Nationals called up Strasburg on June 8th for a home game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In that game he dominated with 14 strikeouts and earned a win.

This year through four starts, Strasburg has 2-1 record, 1.78 ERA, and 41 strikeouts.

Strasburg has been the biggest splash in the majors since McGwire.Now he has something in common with him in a piece of memorabilia priced at over $1 million.

Currently on Ebay there is a 2010 Bowman’s autographed rookie card numbered 1 of 1 of Strasburg that has a current bid at $1 million due to end on June 28th.This card has the potential to rival the price of $2.6 million Honus Wagner T206 card.

With the economy being as bad as it is and Strasburg’s limited experience, it boggles the mind why this particular card is currently bidding at such a high price.
