Default OPINION NEEDED: Harper USA Pickup

Hey guys I won this tonight on ebay, and I'm looking for opinions...

2010 Bowman Chrome Bryce Harper 18U USA BGS 8.5 NM-MT - eBay (item 170667513346 end time Jul-17-11 17:44:47 PDT)

I think I got a pretty good steal here as the last one sold for $50, but my question is how do you guys think a 8.5 BGS grade will hold up value wise in the long run if harper ends up making it? Also what is a 8.5 BGS grade comparable to in a PSA grade 9, 9.5, etc?

Thanks in advance for any help!

8.5 is prob close to a PSA 9

the value should hold well as i think it will be his most sought after first chrome rcs

Probably will be better off in the long run by cracking it out of the slab and selling it raw. BGS 9.5 & pristine 10's obviously carry the premium and my guess would be you are going to be slightly hurt by yours being an 8.5. I would probably crack and sell it raw or maybe try to resubmit it although it looks like the highest grade it got on anything is a 9.

I would think you should be able to get $50-60 for it if you sell at the right time, but yeah crack it and sell it raw

Thanks for the help guys, I think for the time being I will leave it slabbed and when his hype is the biggest (probably when he gets called up to the bigs) I will see if the 8.5's or raw's are selling for more and go from there
