Strasburg mania

Posted on: June 8, 2010 4:32 pm

Bits and pieces from the Stras-os-phere ... er, Strasburbia ... er, nevermind. Bits and pieces about the Nationals' Stephen Strasburg:

  • A Strasburg baseball card sold on eBay last weekend for $16,403. Yes, really. Bowman has a series called “chrome superfractor,” and produces just one card for each player. Superfractor cards only pop up at a rate of one per 11,000 packs.
  • The Washington Post is running a Strasburg haiku contest .

  • His old college coach will be among the 25 friends and family in Strasburg's section. Which is notable, because his old college coach is Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn .
  • Jim Lackritz, associate dean of the college of business at San Diego State, where Strasburg played in college, estimates in this CNBC item that tonight's debut will net the Nationals $1.56 million. That's more than 10 percent of his record signing bonus, recovered in one night.
