LaVar Ball + Autograph Trading Cards = $$$$$
P.T. Barnum said "There's a sucker born every minute."
LaVar Ball is banking on that.
The outspoken father of NBA draft prospect Lonzo Ball thinks that if you are willing to spend your life savings on a pair of sneakers you might be willing to part with your entire paycheck for a trading card of him.
Darren Rovell of ESPN reported that LaVar Ball signed 200 cards with his name and face on them for Leaf Trading Cards.
Each card that Ball signed includes some of his infamous quotes handwritten by the man himself.
The cards will be sold on eBay at 1:00pm Wednesday at a fixed price of $59.95.
"This wasn't all about the money," Ball said "I think it's cool to have a card."
Leaf CEO Brian Gray believes LaVar Ball is a "significant pop culture icon," and his job is to "create a collectible element for personalities like him"
While the initial purchase price has been set the market value will come when said cards are resold.
