    It's amazing the things that people will bid on.....especially when not certified by a known certification service....

    No it is an actual signed card... It's much like the patch card that was selling big on eBay with Gretzky and some other guy... What happened is someone got a real Pope signature and it is part of the card it's hard to explain but the card is made with two peices and the signature portion is like a frame... I have seen one made of Regan before and it sold pretty huge after he passed at a New York auction...

    This is interesting. When I first read this article:

    I was thinking that the card was not actually signed. Reading it again, I think I understand what you are talking about. Here's the quote from the piece:

    Here's the part that throws me:
    According ro my understanding now, there is a card that has the physical signiture of Napoleon Bonaparte and the rest. wow!

    wow- I can't wait until the other cards in the set surface to see what they go for.
    man, I still feel sorry for the guy that found the card though. Geez- he sold it for 3-5K. what a bad deal.

    It amazes me that there is still TWO more days remaining for that card... do you think Golden Palace will step in and grab it at the end? It's at 101,500.01 US now...
