    How about a 100k Nolan Arenado thread?

    Saw a couple of 100k-themed posts in the front page here, then saw this recent 100k listing on eBay.

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/2010-Bowman-C...&ul_noapp=true

    Thatís a crazy listing, those collectors in Taiwan gots money (and taste, apparently).

    Maybe just a showcase auction?

    Maybe Arenado finishes the year in Colorado?

    HOF auto collector - I'm up to 258 different in my collection (used to have a photobucket link here, but photobucket sucks)

    GO ROCKIES!

    I mean, I dont think this sells for 100k, I'm thinking 20k would be an overpay

    Nah, no way it sells for the asking price. But hereís a thought: might a purchase at 20k be a potential investment? If itís an overpay now, what if he has a career year and ends up w the Yankees or Dodgers (which heís likely to do even if he has an average year)?

    Might wish I made an offer...

    The one Neg this seller has is interesting.

    "Cancelled purchase and refunded with no explanation and no response to message"



    ...and it was on a $10,000 Babe Ruth 1/1.

    Interesting how his signature completely changed in about 3 years. Not uncommon, but one big reason why certifying autographs (and trusting those certifications) can be a big can of worms.

    That is interesting, I hadnít really looked at those side by side before. I got his autograph ip last year and it looks like the one on the left in the auction (from 2013). Iím now starting to wonder if those 2010 cards were actually signed by him.

    Interesting. I went back and looked at his early career signings and they are all over the place until 2012, which is when it seems he started signing consistently like in the 2013 example.

    Arenado's signature has changed significantly since 2010. He was still in high school and printed his signature a lot back then. He's since changed it to a more cursive type signature. Both are very real even though they both look very different. Here's my Arenado gem (his only BGS 10 gem color 2010), I'd love to get that 2010 Super though!

    Not surprising to me that your blue ref. auto is a pop. 1, congratulations. Ever check the pop. report for PSA graded blue ref. autos?
