How does a card go up 1000% in 10 minutes?

19.jpgeTopps introducted RRO (Restricted Rookie Offering) cards during the baseball season.  These cards are made available at any given time for a period of anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours.  Once that time is up the only way to get your hands on one of them is on the secondary market.

The first football cards introducted by eTopps was an A.J. Hawk card.  It was only available on September 14th from 5:35 PM to 5:45 PM.  After this time elapsed the card was trading for $200 on the eTopps site.  There were a total of 183 cards issued.  Buyers are limited to 5 RRO’s and eTopps will never issue this rookie again as an individual eTopps card.

The highest completed auction ended at $201.54 on September 15th.  As of September 20th, the card was trading at around $155.
