His base autos are going for 30.00 to 40.00 and I was lucky to get the case hit of his red refractor auto 3/5! My local hobby store sold it for me.....599.99 bin....... 18 years old short stop and from Venez....signed as a free agent. Best regards, David

He's in the next wave of Cubs stud prospects. Best fielding SS out of everyone they have, including Russell and Baez.

Damn. I would've paid way more for it.

I would NEVER want to cast aspersions on an unknown hobby shop, but I would ask who bought it. Did you see the auction go up? Yeah, you have $500+, but it just seems odd that a card shop wouldn't put a little effort into researching what a proper BIN would be.

Might as well take the money and run, odds are good that pretty soon someone more highly regarded will come along and that $1000 Red auto will turn into a $300 Red auto. I'm sure the guy at my local who pulled a Bubba Starling Gold auto a few years back is happy to have gotten a grand for what is now probably a $200 card.

Closer to $100...

Nobody in my area even knew this guy. Looks like someone had it graded 9.5 and its was on ebay for $2,000 or best offer.....Not showing anymore....but not showing in as sold. Best regards, David
