At one time, this was a $100 card.



Fast forward ten years, and now it's just dollar-box fodder.

Maybe the decimal point is just in the wrong place.

I clearly remember the day, roughly 10 years ago, that I pulled a 2000 Finest Asadorian out of a jumbo pack. It was then booking at $120! I should have sold it immediately. Still have it to this day.

I distinctly remember seeing a pile of these rookies in a box at the card shop 10 years ago. I don't usually prospect, but I pulled one out of the box and my thought process went something like this:

"Hmm. I've heard this guy's name mentioned during the Yankee game. The announcers put him over as a rising star with electric stuff, but he's only a relief pitcher. Plus, this guy won't come down from the "book value" of $8. I better pass."

Too bad I didn't bite. That was a rookie of Johan Santana. Oops.

Oh Rick Asadorian how excited I used to be to see your cards. Along with Ryan Anderson you signify my failed attempts at prospecting.

I need that card for my every Red Sox ever collection. What would you like for it?
