    A rare Stephen Strasburg baseball card is hitting the auction block again.

    Bidding opens for the autographed 2010 Bowman Prospects rookie card at $9,000 at noon on Wednesday. Huggins and Scott, a sports memorabilia auction house in Silver Spring, Md., is hosting the two-week online auction.

    The anonymous owner tried to sell the card on eBay in June, but that auction ended when outrageous bids exceeding $900,000 could not be verified.

    Though the Washington Nationals pitcher may be the most buzzed-about rookie in Major League Baseball this year, Bill Huggins, co-owner of Huggins and Scott, said he believes the Strasburg card may fetch only $50,000. It was originally purchased inside a box of baseball cards for $275.

    The auction will end July 28.
