Is this April Fool's Day?



So I am sitting here scanning the Bay when I come across the whopper.

PSA 1 NAPOLEON REYES 1945 1946 Caramelo Deportivo Cuban League #73 Pop 1/1 RARE!

This eBay listing is for the RAREST BASEBALL CARD OF ALL-TIME! Forget the T206 Honus Wagner card! PSA has 32 of those, including 1 that is a PSA 8 grade! THIS CARD is the most scarce baseball card in existence! In fact, THIS IS THE ONLY PSA-GRADED EXAMPLE (IN ANY GRADE!) of the 1945-46 Caramelo Deportivo Cuban League card #73, Napoleon Reyes! This card is graded PSA 1 mk (mark) and that's it -- there are no others graded higher, no others graded lower, no others in the same grade!  THIS IS A POP 1 CARD, PERIOD.  I have been on quest for this card for many, many years, and now here it is!  The story behind this card is amazing!  At the time the cards of this set were issued, they were only issued in Cuba, and, to obtain the Reyes card, you had to collect all the other 72 cards in the set, stick them in an album, and bring the album to a building on a certain day when a public official was there to verify your set and then personally glue the Reyes card into your album to complete the set. So, as you can imagine, very few of these Reyes cards survived at all -- I AM A LIFELONG COLLECTOR OF ALMOST 50 YEARS AND I HAVE ONLY EVER SEEN 2 OTHER EXAMPLES OF THIS REYES CARD -- BOTH UNGRADED AND UNABLE TO BE GRADED BECAUSE THEY WERE UNABLE TO BE REMOVED FROM THE ALBUM THEY WERE GLUED IN TO!  Now, here is THE CARD -- THE ONLY CARD OF ITS KIND GRADED BY PSA -- EVER!  WHAT A FIND!  Be sure to check out my other eBay listings for other rare sports cards and memorabilia of all-time great players like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Wayne Gretzky!


Price:US $85,500.00!!!!!!!!!! Shipping $49.99!!! (I haven't altered the above text)

So what does 86K get ya? It must  be a real rare card? One of a kind? Yeah?
Yes a NAPOLEON REYES 1945 1946 Caramelo Deportivo Cuban League #73.

Here is my 1945 1946 Caramelo Deportivo Cuban League  Mike Gonzalez. Set me back $9.99.

    2. The sellers with the craziest prices always have the craziest auction descriptions to go along with them. It's like a law of nature.
