What was recently a $1-2 Base auto is now selling at almost $300. Each. No joke.

His three HRs tonight (and his killer performance in general since being called up) are pushing his cards into the stratosphere.

So, in the name of all that is holy, LIST YOURS!

(this was languishing in my album for years)

Great example of why some prospectors (not you guys) are morons, paying $300 for cards of a .248 lifetime hitter over eight freakin’ seasons in the minors because of ten MLB at bats.
Sell before these idiots realize how stupid they are.

I don't know if it's because I've been watching a lot more baseball and dipping back into prospecting this year or this is just a fluke season for so many under the radar guys coming up and going on tears, but I'm seeing a lot of guys like this this year. Beyond Vlad Jr, Tatis Jr, Bichette Jr, and Yordan, you've got guys like Harold Ramirez, Luis Arraez, and Aquino who have a hot streak and they just bring the FOMO out of people who drive crazy pricing for a few weeks.

Urshela has been a good off season buy

Yeah he's another. Thought things have come back down to earth a bit. Quick check on ebay, someone BINned a 2015 BC Orange Ref for $3000 in May, but in July the BGS 9.5 Super finished via auction for $1800. Either way, pretty strong prices for a 27-yo in his first full season.

No - they started off at insane levels - almost $300 each, but have settled at around $100-125 per base.
I know he's killing it right now, setting all sorts of random HR records and Reds fans are probably calling him the next Babe Ruth but my only question is.....how long before the majority of baseball fans forget about him? One season? Two?

I mean, does anyone really remember who the fastest to 14 home runs was? Fastest to 77 RBI?

Plus, there is something to be said about small sample sizes....does anyone remember when Eric Thames was on pace to hit 60 home runs?

Better question, does anyone still follow Eric Thames?






Not that I'm complaining, I love it when fans overreact to rookies. One of the things I love about prospecting. I guess I'm just being a smarta$s :cool:
