    I wouldn’t put it past Blowout Cards to have made a gentleman’s agreement with Beckett not to grade the card 9.5 if it was pulled. That way, BO can put a fake bounty on it just to watch the price of wax explode and make more money off said wax

    I hope the owner doesn't try and sell it anytime soon. How's this for bad timing?

    Angels PR @LAAngelsPR
    Shohei Ohtani will be placed on the disabled list with a grade 2 sprain of the UCL. He underwent a PRP and Stem Cell injection yesterday with Dr. Steve Yoon in Los Angeles. He will be re-evaluated in 3 weeks and we will update his plan of care at that time.

    Not encouraging.

    @MLBPlayerAnalys
    Recorded UCL Stem Cell injections, with results:

    Andrew Heaney (TJS 2 mo. later)
    Garrett Richards (back 11 mo. later)
    Rubby De La Rosa (back 9 mo. later, then TJS 2 mo. after)
    Yimmi Brasoban (back 7 mo. later)
    JC Ramirez (back 7 mo. later, TJS 2 wk. later)

    Damn it. Is it similar to Tanaka where surgery wasn't needed? I think he was the most interesting story in baseball this year. People who don't even care that much about baseball were following him.

    thats rough and I agree with what JoshHamilton said about BO. As soon as I saw BO's cheap publicity stunt my first thought was that it was only so that they can drum up more interest and in turn increase profits on their 18' Bowman wax because there is no way that jumbo boxes should be anywhere near $300 per, maybe $200.

    Rumor was FCB offered 90K for the Ohtani no matter the grade. Can't confirm that though

    If I’m not mistaken, the jumbo boxes were over $300 before the bounty was offered.

    sounds like it. Junk science, time, and hope for the best to avoid TJ surgery. Based on Jaypers post in this thread about the history of other pitchers doing this treatment, it seems safe to assume Ohtani won't be back pitching until 2019 (or 2020 if TJ is decided).

    On twitter it says the guy waited a week before opening the box. Wonder how much that cost him?

    Probably not much. There are guys looking for bragging rights or something flashy to show off that have money burning a hole in their pockets that will pay up for a high profile card like this.
