For those looking to nab a piece of the phenomenon that is Jeremy Lin, they would have crazy if they heard about his mint condition rookie trading card which was sold off for $21,580 on Thursday.
The seller, the Manhattan card collector Yair Rozmaryn, originally paid only $1,000 for it two weeks ago, before the world had gone Linsane. Rozmaryn told the New York Times days before the auction ended:
