Thsi is a rare story, I wonder if this card will end up as one of the most valuable of all time. And I definatley think that he deserves to get one of these cards so that he can frame it, this is such an out of the ordinary thing to happen

OK, so Alex Gordon's baseball card isn't as valuable as the 1909 Honus Wagner gem that sold for more than $1.2 million a few years ago.

But Gordon's card, which was mistakenly released in limited numbers by Topps, sold last week for $7,500 on Internet auction site eBay. Pretty impressive considering Gordon, a top Kansas City Royals prospect, is playing Double-A ball in Wichita, Kan.

Under Major League Baseball Players Association rules, Gordon's card should not be in circulation.

Link busted.

Story from ESPN

If he makes it to the majors and Topps releases EXACTLY the same card, they can make all those in circulation right now worthless.
