    Well. You have to look at it and think how well and how long does he have to do it for? You are right in one sense. He comes up and hits 3 JAcks in his first two games then yes there could be a higher spike. BUT honeslty, how well does he have to do. Prices are INSANE right now. Again, JMO but, we shall see.

    I agree, his prices are insane. Even people buying at current high hype levels are not going to turn around a take a loss on a quick flip though. I do think his prices will drop but not close to 20% in a few weeks. Once prices are this high, it takes a while for them to drop to reasonable levels, just too many people guarding their investments or people adding to their personal collections before prices get any crazier.

    I could see this being true. But what it could come down to is how many people try to cash in on the hype right now? If enough people start to list his cards and try and cash in on auctions there may be enough inventory/chances on ebay where you see some auctions go for reasonably lower prices. A 20% drop sound like a lot, but take for example his Bowman draft auto selling for 700-800 dollars then seeing them drop to
    600-650 isnt unreasonable. I corrected this to make it more on point

    I'm sure there are enough old farts around here to understand the reference that if Lloyd Bentsen was alive today, he might say "Kris, you are no Mark Grace!".

    The record is 2 by Bob Nieman in 1951 and Keith McDonald '00 (who interestingly hit 3 career HR and is the only player with more than 1 career HR with no other base hits).

    117 players have hit a HR in their 1st AB, the most recent being Jorge Soler last year

    Also in the Cubs lineup today, Starlin Castro did it as part of his 6 RBI debut in '10

    Oh come on now... This is the anniversary of Mickey Mantle's debut for the Yankees! All the hype must be true with that kind of omen/coincidence!
