This is one pricey prospect.
Stephen Strasburg has yet to throw a pitch for the Washington Nationals, but an eBay listing for the right-hander's baseball card already has passed $16,000 with more than two days left in the online auction.
Strasburg signed a record $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals after he was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft. The former San Diego State star is dominating in the minors and could be called up to the majors soon.
The listing for the 2010 Bowman Chrome Superfractor card says it's the only one of its kind. The bidding ends Saturday and the seller is advertising free shipping.
