2005-06 The Cup Black Rainbow Alexander Ovechkin Rookie card 1/1 sold on eBay for a hefty sum

I told you earlier about the 2005-06 The Cup Rainbow Alexander Ovechkin Rookie Hockey Card, a 1/1, that was up for bids on eBay.  Well, the auction has ended and the card sold for the last reported bid of 9,189.00 US dollars.  Oh...  that plus $7.99 for shipping, which is what kept me out of the bidding.

I mean, really, you'd think at this price they could have thrown in the shipping for free.  But I understand, everyone has to make a buck.  You can't just give things away for free.  Unless, of course its coming from this blog and its one of our contests for a Free set of Baseball Cards, or a contest for several packs of Football Cards.  (By the way there are more contests in the works, so make sure to check here for details.)  But when it comes to shipping, thats an expense that's got to be paid, which, in the case of our prizes, is at my expense.  Just ask one of our recent winners.

Anyway, its a sweet card, but I have to ask again, do you think it was worth the close to $9,200 and would you pay that if you could?  Would you have guessed that this card would have went for that price?  If you were the seller, would you at least throw in the shipping at that point?  Leave us a comment.
