Yeah--the fact Stras came out and pitched well for awhile REALLY jumped his cards up even more. Hard to tell what will happen to Harper stuff. If he continues to kill pitching in the minors, it probably won't be much different. We'll have updates to how he does every game instead of every 4-5 games. Less (hopefully) chance of injury and no worries about pitch counts or having to shut him down early. Should be a wild ride!

another good point.......... although, the casual collectors will be buying Bowman BECAUSE of the Harper hype.

Catch the wave people.
I got $116.88 for the Nationals slot on my 2 Jumbo box break last night.

Anyone care to speculate what is going to happend to the Harper USA 2010 chrome 1st cards? The base is currently going for just shy of $50. I'm thinking they might be the ones that really shoot up.

Sooo, when does bowman actually go live for the rest of us? I see the 18th, but there is no way that can be if cards are already hitting ebay.

I'm at work right now and ebay is blocked, but I was using ebay mobile and I noticed that several Harper chromes are over $100 in bidding, but there are BINs for $65 and $45. Again, I'm using mobile so I can't really investigate these listings, but if there are legit chrome Harpers listed at $65 and $45 BIN, why are people bidding up other listings over $100? Why wouldn't they just hit the BIN?

And, for that matter, why would the sellers list at a BIN so low when the auctions are going crazy?

2 jumbos should yield a harper chrome and 2 base. eyeballing it, maybe a 35% shot at a 2nd harper chrome?

I noticed the same thing with the BIN. I thought I was missing something as well.

just curious how many/if any who have pre-ordered jumbo cases/boxes through ebay have already got your stuff. Confusing seeing as I thought the release date was the 15th and some people already have the stuff in-hand

Im not much of a prospector, but are Harper chromes really as valuable as 50 to 100 a piece. Just seems crazy.

If people are willing to pay that, they are. The only thing we really can compare this to is Stras-mania last year. His base chromes came out at about 20-25 (I think) each and peaked at around 60 after his callup. Not sure how long this $100 Harper business will last, but I wouldn't think it would last long. I would guess they may settle at about 50 for awhile and then adjust from there as his actual progress in the game warrants. Very tough to tell though, as nothing this extreme has happened before!
