Accidental Card Show

So I took my son to the Lego store at the Arundel Mills Mall on Saturday morning, and in doing do I accidentally ran into a card show.  Well considering I had no card budget, and I have a 1st grader who really didn't share the same interests as me at the time, I think I did ok.  I only bought three cards.  I got two Colts.
I also picked up a nice Adam Jones manu-patch.  I got an awesome deal too...or did I?  The dealer had it marked at $50.00
Let me see...Adam Jones, #'d out of 99, manu-patch....My guess is that it is a $10, maybe $15, but definitely not $50.  This dealer was one of those guys that priced all of the home team cards outrageously.  I asked him how much he wanted for it, and he said $10.  WOW!  He was willing to take off a whopping 80%.  I told him I would give him $5.00.  I surely was asking too much...wasn't I?  I was asking for 90% off the original price!  He said yes!  You know the funniest part of the whole transaction was that he really thought that I believed I was getting a great deal.  $5 for a $10 card is not a bad deal, but it is no 90% of!  Anyhow, here is the card
