I hope someone buys it and runs it over with a 68 camero.

Or shoots it with a barrett 50 BMG. Boom head shot.

10K is a bid. We will see how much they ACTUALLY get for it once the fake bids are thrown away.

Can't they just ditch all this crappy BS marketing and start selling these cards? Im hoping to get one of the newer 5970s (Ares or this one or other) for Stygian 3....

Talking 59070 limited Edition

Do you think they'll take my 5970 black back for a credit to buy one of these? hahaha Or better still, have the girls sign it so I can get big $ on ebay and then I can afford to buy one of these. I know, and pigs fly, right?
