Arizona Diamondbacks closer and Trenton High School alum J.J. Putz has Justin Bieber fever.
In fact, Putz's Bieber fever—or at least a photo of the baseball player holding a baseball card of the teen idol—has gone viral.
Putz, a former All-Star who saved 45 games for the Diamondbacks last year, found a rare, autographed Justin Bieber card in a pack given to him by teammate Brad Ziegler.
Yahoo! Sports Big League Stew said the Bieber card is worth a lot of money. The Knights Lance, a blog devoted to Panini America, the company that makes the cards, said the Bieber card has sold for $4,500 on eBay.
Ziegler posted a photo of Putz with the Bieber card on Twitter, and the picture went “viral,” according to a report on diamondbacks.com. The photo, which shows Putz smiling and giving a thumbs-up while holding the Bieber card, has gotten a lot of attention on blogs and Twitter.
Putz, who denied he is a Bieber fan, told dbacks.com that he likely will give the card to teammate Craig Breslow to sell to charity.
