2009 Topps Silk: Livan Hernandez

I bought my second 2009 Topps Silk card from a seller on eBay for a total of $2.84 shipped. I think that’s a pretty good bargain. However, it is a card of Livan Hernandez. Still, less than three bucks bought a Topps Silk card. The card is numbered 50/50. Does this mean that this was the last Hernandez card produced or is it just a number? Some sellers might think this number is somehow worth more because it is the last number. Personally, I don’t care what the serial number is. I don’t understand how one number can be worth more than another. I hate how some people will drive up a card’s price because the serial number matches a jersey number or birthday or some other number. By the way, does anyone know what Livan Hernandez is up to this year? I actually had to look it up. Apparently, he’s hanging on for dear life with the Nationals.


  1. I don't care about the first or last number, but I will pay a little extra to land the one that matches a player's uniform number. Don't ask me why -- I couldn't give you a good answer if I tried.

  2. That's a good price on a silk. I'll pay a little extra for the uni # of my favorite players, but otherwise, a number is a number.
