How about a 100k Nolan Arenado thread?

Nah, no way it sells for the asking price. But here’s a thought: might a purchase at 20k be a potential investment? If it’s an overpay now, what if he has a career year and ends up w the Yankees or Dodgers (which he’s 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 hadn’t 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). I’m 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!

What a beautiful card and very tough to grade high. I'm sure it is very low but what's the population?
for Arenado's 2010 Bowman Chrome Autographs:

Base - 6 BGS 10's (zero perfect 10 black labels) out of 348 graded
Refractor - 4 BGS 10's (zero perfect black labels) out of 214 graded
Blue Refractor - 1 BGS 10 (mine) out of 94 graded. There are 46 BGS 9.5's, 42 BGS 9's, and 5 BGS 8.5's according to pop. report.

No other BGS 10's exist for this card or it's variations.

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?
