The seller is Scott Pratte, a prolific card seller. He recently spoke about the sale and his expectations for the auction with Yahoo.com. He told Yahoo that he currently owns two of the existing copies and considers his to be the best available. Both sit at 9 out of 10 on the Professional Sports Authenticator scale.

Pratte understands that $100,000 to be a little steep of an asking price, but he does expect to get roughly half of that for his rare card.

"Realistically, an ungraded copy could easily earn $20,000, so I'm hoping somewhere around $50,000," said Pratte.
