People always say, "when so-and-so happens, you know you've made it." I say it all the time. When sports shows talk about you every day, you've made it. When you spark your team and become the most intriguing rookie nearly ever, you've made it. But this has to be the most convincing case there is. When your baseball card is rumored to be worth $25,000 you've made it. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go buy a crate of cards as soon as possible.
UPDATE: That initial update might be on the high side. Still impressive, though.
@MLBFanCave that is a lofty estimate. It has not sold for that -- but it might.
