A rare 1987 Donruss rookie PSA Barry Bonds baseball card signed by the player himself is available on eBay. What makes this card special — besides the former Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder's signature — it that it comes with a few words of wisdom, Say No To Drugs, scrawled across the card by Bonds himself. The same signed card — which usually goes for about $125 — is now going for an asking price of $100,000 because of the ironic nature of those four words. The seller, who actually goes by bonds_autograph, claims “This card represents the most unique and ironic collectible available for the polarizing star.” He also says the card has been verified by PSA.  The price of the card — with a photo of the then scrawny Bonds and those prophetic words — soars because of the irony factor. But $100 Grand?!
