David Wright 2009 Topps Finest Xfractor baseball card: a puzzlement.

This 2009 David Wright Finest White Xfractor Auto card is at $227.50 with three hours to go on eBay. We get that it's an Xfractor, and a 1/1 to boot. But it's also a sticker autograph. Remember, this means that Lucy's favorite baseball player signed stickers, and then someone at Topps affixed those stickers to various cards, including this one. If this was such a special grand wunnerful spectaculorosonic card, don't you think Topps could have had David Wright just SIGN the darned thing? But no. We must be a bear of little brain, because we don't understand paying that kind of money for a sticker autograph. Is that the kind of card that an investor buys, or a speculator or whatever, or is that a card a David Wright fan would purchase? We have a David Wright sticker autograph card because --David at Indian Cards For the Most Part, With Lots of Other Interesting Findings sent us one, and we treasure it. (Especially the Shiny):
And isn't it, in fact, extremely pretty? The sticker is on straight, too.

I always go back and forth on how I feel about stickers. On one hand, they're better than cut autos (of living people, anyway) because at least the player knew he was signing for a baseball card, even if not on the card itself.

Oh the other hand, it's a sticker.

I figure the $227 card is a Wright collector, who is willing to shell out an obscene amount of money for a sticker because it's on a '1/1' card. Once he/she buys it, I doubt anyone else would pay anywhere near that for it...
