Auction Action: Black Rainbow Ovechkin is Fetchin’ by tolentinotown

By Andrew Tolentino | Assistant Editor

For those who are familiar with the wonders of a “full on double rainbow,” this 1/1 black rainbow is bringing about similar beguilement.

In just 12 hours, this 2005-06 The Cup Black Rainbow Alexander Ovechkin 1/1 rookie card set eBay ablaze with more than 100 watchers and bids exceeding the $5,000 mark. Opening the auction at a long since gone 99 cents with no reserve price, Beckett Select Merchandise Manager Dave Sliepka explained, “This card is going crazy.”

With the current bid closing in on $8,000 ($7,700) and more than 400 watchers (800 eyes, unless pirates are involved), this Ovechkin could be fetchin’ five figures before auction’s end on Nov. 22.
