Penny Cards on eBay

I recently purchased this 2012 Topps card of Rex Brothers on eBay for the grand total of one cent with free shipping.  To be honest, I had no clue who Rex Brothers was when I entered my bid.  But I did know the meaning of 2012 Topps and one cent.  After a quick query on the old search engine, (I use SwagBucks, but Google is fine too.)  I discovered that the subject on this card has 123 games worth of experienced as a big league reliever.  And he doesn’t really suck either.  He has a 3.49 career ERA over 108.1 innings.  Unfortunately, Mr. Brothers plays in Colorado for the Rockies which is not exactly a high profile team.  At least free agency will rescue Rex if he sticks around for a while.
