I know it's the first one on eBay but his chrome auto only sells for $20 why would a retail "second" auto be worth $50?

Bingo. There's stupid people out there, and they frequent ebay. If it doesn't sell overnight, then I'll adjust in the morning.

Why the frown? Most of us expected his chrome would be $25-$30 like Strasburg. $50 would be a gift.

because i like hobby better but the price of the box will be way higher than retail. So though retail might work out well with harper at 50, i would just rather be opening hobby.

are you aj6627?

good sell on that brentz considering the only other one went for 14.99. I thought my offer was fair enough considering it is now a 2nd year auto. I'll keep on trucking.

glad to see we got one of the first on these boards, congrats!! .... but seriously, are you more likely to regret selling it right now, or holding onto it? I know what my answer would be, I'm just sayin.....

Congrats on the Harper auto, check the first redemption auto on the bay, it is at $700 and climbing with time to spare!

I'd have to agree with this. If you sell it now, you will get top dollar. Then buy another one once the price settles.

I think the first one was northwards to a grand??? Once the hobby auto hits the bay, the retail auto will drop considerably. Last year's Strasburg base autos are at $200 (graded). If I were you, I'd get it up tonight. One day auction. With the money you get from that sale alone, you can buy 3-4 more in a few weeks.

But that's just me. To give you some insight, I sold both of my Pineda autos. First sold for $240, another dude sold his after me for $200, my second sold for $180. It will eventually settle in the mid $100s, at which point, I will buy it back to complete my auto set.

Congrats man. You could always sell it high now and buy low later... if you're like me, though, you're probably a sucker for cards you pulled yourself .

im sure if you redeem it you could get it in a few weeks, since the rumor is that hobby harper autos are live. i would expect it to already be in hand. but you do have a small window where you wont have later on, and thats to have one of the first ones up for auction...

I understand the sentimental value in wanting to keep this one since infact you pulled it, but the heck with that the money is way too good right now. The redemption up on ebay right now is at $700 with 2 days left, so I would assume it's going to go for over $1,000. Sell your redemption now for around that price, and pickup the live card when hobby gets released for probably less than 1/4 of that.
