    Post Jose Bautista Chrome is En Fuego

    I've seen Jose Bautista's name getting tossed around an awful lot in threads like this one:

    http://freedomcardboard.com/forum/vi...p?f=2&t=130702

    I started doing a little checking into what his sales have been doing. 2006 Chrome Auto was initially viewed as one of the "dogs" of that auto set....no longer.

    April 12th - base auto sells for $13 - [phil:2mvk12fk]290553131426[/phil:2mvk12fk]
    April 25th - base auto sells for $36!- [phil:2mvk12fk]380334075407[/phil:2mvk12fk]

    First Raw Blue Auto to hit $100+ [phil:2mvk12fk]220772497320[/phil:2mvk12fk]

    and check out what the red did! [phil:2mvk12fk]360361503665[/phil:2mvk12fk]

    There must be a segment of the population that is viewing him as "for real" (yes, that was valley-girl esque) now because these prices were not seen during the midst of his 50-HR year last year.

    I'd still rather have his 2002 Bowman Chrome stuff, though it lacks the autos. 4 years is a huge difference. And it's not like we're comparing USA Autos or some other niche/XRC type of card - it's apples to apples - Bowman Chrome to Bowman Chrome.

    I will get my Cecil Fielders out of the bargain bin as that is the type of career he is going to have.

    Do people even look at a players age? His first good season was at the age of 30!!!!!!!!!!

    He will have his 5 to 7 good years, become a autograph circuit guy and be really popluar with Toronto collectors which means his card values will plummit once retired.

    Some people just like the auto though...

    that being said, the 2002 Chrome Xfractors are great looking - [philj50yzjx]200600897889[/philj50yzjx]

    Agreed, he was hot enough last year that they got bought.

    Things like this - [phil:eyj3qscu]280664599012[/phil:eyj3qscu] may still be there though.

    I basically gave away my bautista autos back in '06. I remember in my last case I had an Alex Gordon blue auto STUCK to an Alex Gordon blue auto, sold them each for $500. Ridiculous money.

    Looking back thats an outstanding auto set,

    Alex Gordon now hitting,
    Justin Upton
    Jon Lester
    Prince Fielder
    Jose Bautista

    2006 Bowman Chrome was an outstanding set, period. So many different base chomes have been hot from that set at different times:

    Maybin
    Tabata
    Andrus
    Sonnanstine
    Hellickson
    Cain
    Pence
    Radhames Liz
    Jose Arredondo
    Mat Gamel
    Alcides Escobar
    Carlos Gomez
    Ching Lung Lo
    Josh Outman

    and on and on.

    Especially considering three of them were the RC logo autos. Easily the best set for those.

    I will pay $35 all day for his BC auto. Even at current prices he is underrated.

    With that said, I still prefer the 2002 bowman chrome over the 06 auto.

    I remember when I gave my base auto of him to Blowout when I sent in a bunch of game used/autos. Opps!
