I recently picked up a Bowman Futures Game Triple Relic #'ed 17/99 of Scott Sizemore off of Ebay. I was more than happy to pay less than the price of a pack for a great card. It's pretty amazing to see a high school friend representing the USA.
I had the chance last year to present some of my Master's work at a conference in South Korea, where I competed against representatives of several countries around the world. I can tell you first hand that it was an incredible honor and privelege to represent the USA on an international stage.
