Default Cody Bellinger Prices

My GOD!

I bought my 9.5/10 base auto in November for 65. Sold a few weeks ago (2-3) for 116 I think. One just sold for 167.


I know he will be good but what the hell?

Way over hyped, its going to be another Joc Pederson deal. People are going to go crazy and then when he comes up and hits .220 his prices will tank.

Bought 3 Refractors myself a few months back for around $65 each. One seller never shipped, one card had a crease and had to be returned, and one card became a BGS 9.5.

I think this is a perfect example that the offseason isn't always the cheapest time to buy.

Hadn't looked in on him in awhile. Maybe it's time to sell my '15 Chrome purple auto..

He made it to AAA as a 21 year old. That is very impressive. He then hit 3 bombs in 3 games in triple A. He is also there #1 rated prospect in a deep system.

Crazy- I picked up a few blues last year that graded well for barely over $100, they're long gone of course!

This is an example of why I never sell my Bowman Chrome autos of any player for less than $10... just be patient...

So many people want to lose small it seems.. I want to win big

I don't trust that blue sale that ended yesterday. It's not consistent with any past sales or any current cards wittting on eBay not moving of his

Why anyone would pay $100 on a card from a guy who hasn't even hit the majors yet is beyond me. Everyone realizes that prospects rarely, and I mean rarely become great MLB players let alone future HOF players correct?

Of course if someone is willing to pay that much for the card, others will probably be willing to pay double that when and if he makes the majors.

I am way out of touch with today's hobby it seems.

Bought a Gem base for $70 not too long ago. Sold it for $115. I'm a Dodger fan and want another but I'll take the free Taco Bell money and wait.

When AJ Reed exploded his base auto was $50 and blue's sold for $350. Then the base started to catch up. Verdugo isn't an unreasonable spread of 3-1 or 4-1. If base gems start ticking up I'd say it's a trend for sure.

Over-hyped? Maybe. Joc Pederson? No.

Sometimes it just moves a bit. Offseason Jan is different than offseason Dec. Depending on the player and the hype different months can be bad times for people. Like Torres prices during the AFL were way higher than in season this year. These Dodger prospects are way inflated now in case one of them kills it in ST and then you get a massive premium.

I bought a refractor a couple months ago, sold it for 120 like a week ago (ungraded) -- I ended up buying a purple for 115, and three days later it sold for 165.

The only thing that's really changed is Sickels releasing his Dodgers bio. I wonder if De Leon skyrocketed as well.

(and the crappy part is that the OP had sent me a better offer, but an offer I'd thrown out the day before and totally forgot about got accepted. Another member here bought both of them on COMC)

Think about those that spend thousands on the reds,supers,orange only to see them worthless in a few years.

Yeah and how many Vlad Jr first bowman chrome autos are there? And how many Vlad Sr rookie cards do think got produced....50x the number of autos his son has. I hate when ignorant people make this argument.

If I remember correctly, this break netted me an orange, green, two refs and four base. All gone, but I still made bank on them back then...
