My Philip Humber Collection

I was lucky enough to watch the end of Philip Humber’s perfect game yesterday. It was the first perfect game I had watched since David Cone’s in 1999. The end of the game was a bit confusing as Brendan Ryan allegedly swung to strike out at what would have been ball four with two out in the ninth. The ball got away from AJ Pierzynski who recovered it to make the final out at first. Humber is yet another former Met to throw a no-hitter. No pitcher has ever done so in a Mets uniform. I own exactly one Philip Humber card. It is a 2005 Bowman card. The card could easily be found in a dime box at any card show. However, the last 5 of these cards to sell on eBay sold for (including shipping) $5.74, $7.50, $8.99, $4.74, and $3.00. The average selling price is $5.99. This is an absolutely ridiculous price for this card. Needless to say, I have already put my Humber card on eBay. I may buy another in a few months if I see it in a dime box.
