There's exactly one ball. There are hundreds of over-printed or artificially underproduced rookie cards for each player out there.

I think you are missing my point - the value of the ball shouldn't be viewed from a monetary standpoint but from it's 'emotional value' to an individual. Of course the last ball thrown in a World Series game will have more emotional value to most people. Especially if you played in the game. But, if you are a die hard Yankee fan, a Jeter rookie card might mean more too you and I can understand, and applaud, that sentiment (Even as a die hard Yankee hater).
If it's obvious it's probably true.
