JP2 Bests Bonds
According to Beckett Media, whose pricing guides are the acknowledged arbiters of value for collectible trading cards, a limited-edition Pope John Paul II from the 2005 World Treasures line of card maker Topps has sold for $8,100.
In comparison, Beckett said, regular cards depicting Barry Bonds, who is contending for baseball's all-time home run record, have never sold for more than $1,200.
All without steroids.
There's a moral in there somewhere.
