Dmitri Young sold his baseball card collection for $2.5 million

There are about six things awesome about this story, but suffice it to say that the fact that Dmitri Young had a kickass baseball card collection is the awesomest.

Now it’s gone, he got $2.5 million for it, and he’s using a portion of that for charity.

Not so awesome: a reminder that Robert Fick hit the last home run in Tiger Stadium history. Man, no one likes Robert Fick, do they?  Maybe Young does. He owns the bat and might sell that too someday.

Anyway, all kinds of fun here. Especially the pic of Young at his desk holding up the Roberto Clemente rookie he used to own. Oh yeah, and the fact the ONLY cards that did not find a buyer were rookie cards of his little punk ass brother.
