    Devers still hot

    He's having a good spring, and I was zeroed in on this slice of fried gold when it came up for auction, his 2014 Bowman Chrome Superfractor.

    I was prepared to go to the mattresses for it, but it surpassed my expectations/hopes by about a grand (for posterity, $3183.33). I'm loving "pure" cards more than ever now, and this is real, real nice. And it's gratifying that a raw, non-auto, true 1st year RC card sold for so much, even if I couldn't afford it.

    Great that it sold for that much but it still isn't a RC because it is a parallel insert.

    Depends on your definition. By the Beckett definition that's true, but I never thought their definition made sense. I consider it an RC, and in the end it doesn't even matter much because the MLB licensing fiasco clouded those waters almost irretrievably.

    Man, this makes me wish I still had my Devers autos that I pulled in my 2015 Bowman's Best case a year back. Can't complain too much since I've since made money on the case with plenty of base autos left, but I could have made even more, especially with an atomic auto /50
