Buy a Stephen Strasburg baseball card or a car?

Stephen Strasburg.  If you follow baseball you must have heard of this guy by now.  Right now there is a ebay auction going on and you won't beleive what one of his baseball cards are going for.  The card is a 2010 Bowman Chrome Superfractor 1/1.  71 bids so far for a grand total of $14,099. Oh yeah, and there's still 3 days left.  Did I mention he hasn't thrown one pitch yet for the Washington Nationals?  Better yet, he still in the minors.  This is too crazy for me.  I don't understand why someone would pay that much for an unproven player.  I don't think he'll be a bust but imagine if he gets hurt early in his career or if he just gets killed by MLB hitters.  So happy bidding on this one.
