Another day, another big SuperFractor sale.

One day after the Stephen Strasburg SuperFractor from 2010 Bowman re-sold for $25,000, another 1/1 of a successful pitcher has sold.

This time, it’s a $4,200 copy of Ubaldo Jimenez‘s card from 2007.

“I bought it 2 1/2 years ago for much less,” said Tal Blanchard, who is from Colorado Springs, Colo. “I thought it deserved slightly more. I had $5,000 in mind, but I honestly have gotten a little disillusioned with collectibles lately. I am thinking about liquidating my entire collection in the next few months in favor of more outdoor/exercise pursuits. Just shifting my focus to different things. Still love baseball.”

Blanchard said that he has followed the pitcher since long before his current run at the history books. He is presently at 14-1 with a 1.83 ERA this season and has been on the upsurge in the hobby.

“I have always loved him since they brought him up at the end of ’07,” he said. “And I’m glad he finally has his control issues in check.”

And, like other collectors and those who own SuperFractors, he said he marveled at the Strasburg sales.

“Can’t believe the Strasburg card sold for that much more the second time around,” he said.
