    Well, I suppose it goes back to the brand thing then. I know Walker had a 2010 sterling auto (assuming there is a 1/1 there). He also should have a 2012 bowman platinum super as well, so it's not the first 1/1 or super of the guy. That's what confuses me.

    I didn't just pull a number out of my ass. i am also not expecting 8k for the card, but there is the possibility of stumbling across someone with enough money that they would give me 8k. I keep a very close watch on baseball prospects and know that this kid has the makings to be the next big thing. He was the centerpiece of the Vetoed Justin Upton trade this summer, he's also putting up pretty good numbers to start this season out as well.

    Which one of the TWENTY-TWO RGIII Superfractors are you talking about.

    Just to clarify, this thread was never meant to attack you or anything of that sort. If you get 8K, then kudos. Your card just happened to be the first one that I noticed on ebay where I was like WHAT?!?!? I could probably go on ebay and find hundreds more that confuse the heck out of me. I've always valued a player's real life performance over the rarity of his cards, so it confuses me when I see an unproven prospect posted at a higher price than a somewhat proven phenom rookie. I think 8K is way too high, but then again, I also have never bought a superfractor. I mostly wanted people's opinion on what defines the value of a superfractor.

    oh i didnt take it as an attack. i asked around (local dealers, card sellers i know,etc) about what i should ask for the card before i set the price.

    I am curious to know the factors that you considered when deciding your listing price. The price seems ridiculous to me, but I also have little to no interest in Taijuan Walker or high end prospecting. There is no doubt that it was a fantastic pull. I would've never thought to list it at 8K, so if you could give me some of the relevant factors that you considered before listing it, I would appreciate it. That way, I'll know how to decide to list my future superfractors (should I ever pull one).

    I'd rather put a high number on something and get what I want instead of getting something very low, due to the starting price and then regret it later on.

    Many of us do consider the 2008 Kershaw to be the best.

    The price reflected on the fact that Taijuan Walker is considered one of the best prospects in the league, so i listed it that high because its not out of the question that some people could be willing to pay that. after seeing what matt harvey has done and the possibility of walker being a potential ace and superstar, i want to price high and get what i want instead of selling low and regretting it later.

    So what do you think the 06 Superfractor Auto would/should go for?
