Six baseball collecting friends recently added to their large
collections with purchases on eBay; each bought a rookie card
of a past or present baseball star, with no two boys paying
the same sum for their cards. From the info below, can you
determine the card each boy bought and how much he spent for
- Bo paid twice as much for the 1986 Barry Bonds rookie card
he bought as Greg spent on his card.
- Ian spent less than Chad, whose card wasn't the most
expensive of the six; the difference in price between Ian's
and Chad's cards was less than $10.00.
- The 1987 Greg Maddux rookie card one collector acquired
cost half as much as the card Jeff purchased.
- The 1957 card of Hall-of-Famer Al Kaline went for $4.00
more than the 1957 card of Hall-of-Famer Jim Bunning; the
Bunning rookie card cost its buyer $4.00 more than the
card Bo bought cost him.
- Warren's winning eBay bid on a card was twice as much as
that of the boy who added the 1990 Sammy Sosa to his
- One collector paid $6.00 for a 1987 Mark McGwire rookie card.
- Ian isn't the one who acquired the 1987 Greg Maddux card,
even though the Atlanta Braves star is his favorite pitcher.
