As the night's auctions were winding down, I noticed that Mat Latos's card didn't have any bids at $9.95. I like Latos -- he's a good pitcher and all -- so I placed a speculative bid of $20 on him. I felt assured that all of these cards would go for far more than that...
Latos went for $19.50.
So, once Topps sends it to me, I will be the owner of a Topps Vault First Edition card, Mat Latos 1/1 Serial #017998.
