    This Weeks Hot List is LIVE!

    Sports Card Hot List for April 21st 2013

    Posted on April 22, 2013 by Corry Gross



    The NBA Finals, the NFL Draft, Major League Baseball, NHL and warmer weather. What more could you ask for if you are a sports fan? This week’s list is all baseball, but next week, you can expect a rise in some football cards with the NFL Draft.

    2012 Panini Prizm Baseball



    Panini Prizm Baseball has gotten mixed reviews about its look, but it sells for good money. Gold Prizms /10 get the most hype and usually out-sell the autographs in the set. Prizm has a nice mixture of legends, veterans and prospects to appeal to all baseball collectors. A Gold Prizm Mike Trout (pictured) sold for a high premium of $510. This is pretty crazy money considering it is not even a rookie card. Yankees players are also popular with a Bernie Williams autograph SP sold for $355 and Derek Jeter gold Prizms are selling for $300-$400. Prizm has also brought controversy because they just released a “2012″ product in April of 2013, but regardless, it is a very popular product.




    Brandon Crawford Rookie Autographs



    Brandon Crawford is mainly known for his glove, but recently, his bat has been hot. Crawford was hitting .352 earlier in the week, but that has since dropped to .317. Last year, he hit .248.


    When his bat was hot, so were his cards. His 2011 Bowman retail autograph was selling for $15-$25 when last week they were only averaging $5. His 2008 Elite school colors autograph /25 sold for a solid $75 when it was selling for $40 pre-Opening Day. It is not likely that he hits over .300 by the end of the season, but if he does, he’d be in the top 10 shortstops in the league.




    2012 Topps Five Star Football Inscription Autos



    Topps has not yet figured out how to match UD Exquisite and Panini National Treasures and contend for the honor of having a players absolute best card. There are some aspects of the set that they do right. There is no better example of this than the inscription autograph set. It gets better when players get creative and put something besides a bland stat or the obvious super bowl mvp inscription.


    The pictured card here is Andrew Luck with a “Chuckstrong” inscription as a show of support for his head coach Chuck Pagano’s leukemia research campaign. Creativity is rewarded as this card sold for $775. People still love the unique.

    Disagree, Prizm was a turrible product. Any product has a few great cards that sell for crazy money, but that doesn't make them strong. Prizm was a nice surprise
    in basketball but was an utter failure for football and baseball, only hyped by card store owners and distributors.

    I would disagree, i think football was a success but baseball was not. But i would like to add that both of them being 2012 products was a huge fail.

    disagree with what?

    Cory said it was hit and miss.

    You can't deny that it was a popular product though.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say "Thank you Cory." You've had some pretty big shoes to fill and you've done a great job. Its one of the few things to look forward to on Mondays.

    I appreciate the kind words. It's encouraging to hear that. I hope to continue to do it as long as time allows. Couldn't do it without you all's great suggestions.

    'but it sells for good money"

    a few cards sold for good money, now pretty much everything sells for nothing. A gold Ryan Howard /10 for 30 bucks, A Wright auto (redemption) for under 25 bucks. Piss poor
    collation. I saw a case break last night and it is the first time that I can honestly say EVERYONE lost money on it.......and I didn't even mention how turrible the air brushed cards look.....oops I just did.

    I do appreciate the work he does compiling the list. Thanks!

    It was hot out the gate. Can't argue with some of the early sales. But even a Ryan Howard unlicensed /10 non-rookie card selling for even $30 is pretty good IMO. I didn't buy any of it, so I'm not saying it's great, but it was pretty hot out of the gate. But thanks for appreciating it!

    Was hot out of the gate and still being hot are two separate things.

    I opened a case of Prizm and got skunked with zero golds. Base collation is terrible. I got 8 Matt Harvey RC's, 6 Harper RC's, 5 Darvish RC's, 2 Cespedes and 1 single Brett Lawrie RC in my entire case (guess that's better than 1 Harper and 8 Lawrie but still). Not even going to bother with making sets. Resale on singles is also poor. Every auto I got except two have sold for under $10 (the exceptions being Matt Harvey and Griffey Jr, BOTH redemptions). And again, no golds didn't help.

    BTW, that Bernie selling for $355 was a fluke. A handful that sold in the past 2 days are in the $25-$30 range, and none have come close to selling as high as that first one. I give this product 4 thumbs down.

    Nice to see JPA make the list!

    And although I doubt Johnson is gonna keep up this pace, is another Kevin Towers rant necessary?
    Don't forget to use the FCB Link when buying on eBay!
