The Strasburg rookie baseball card

I heard on Tuesday that Topps would be releasing the exclusive Stephen Strasburg rookie card Wednesday morning, complete with an image taken during his Major League debut. Here it is, available exclusively at the ToppsMillion site. It features Strasburg's first pitch, and it's supposedly available in "very limited quantities."

You need a code to have access to the card online, which you can only get from lucking out while buying a pack of 2010 Topps, but maybe you just want to sit here and gaze at it. That'll be card No. 661 of the 660-card Topps set, and reports that a different Strasburg card will be included in Topps boxed sets.

How long before he's a Yankee?

OK, to all those making comments on the Internet of "When does he become a Yankee?" ilk:

I have two numbers. Net Worth of Ted Lerner - $3.0 Billion. Net Worth of George Steinbrenner - $1.1 Billion. Please do the math.

Btw, you insult the redskins by having the NY in front Skins. please take it out.

Randy Johnson - dominant pre-yankee career, tanked as a yankee.

kevin brown - dominant pre-yankee career. tanked as a yankee.

if strasburg leaves for the yankees, lets hope he has a dominant pre-yankee career and tanks as a yankee.

Mike Mussina -- dominant pre-yankee career, did pretty well but not great as a yankee.

Seriously---WHY are all the NY dolts on all message boards such flamers?

It's insidious.

Go F yourself 1924...probably been a skins fan longer than you've been alive. There are skins fans all over...maybe not like the Steelers...but they're still all over.

As for the Yanks... thin-skinned Nats fans...yeesh... we don't need him to keep hanging up banners.

I remember Steve Carlton winning something like 27 games with the last-place Phillies....Still made them nothing but last place.

I do wish the Nats well.

But Skins rule !!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is the point of following sports/being a sports fan if you are going to a pessimist who worries about things that are not even a given. Why worry about Strasburg leaving the team one day? Seriously, you are sucking the joy and fun out of sports...what is the point? Oh right, so you aren't set up for'll just never get excited for anything. Great way to live your life pal.

First, this is so long into the future that there is no sense in thinking about it. Second, I have no doubt that if Strasburg pans out and is a top level pitcher the Nats will pay them as much as or more than anyone. In terms of dollars and cents, he will be worth more to the Nats than to any other team at that point.
