Bryce Harper- Panning for Gold
[by RyanW

With so much attention being paid to the incredible rookie season of Mike Trout, it is quite possible that Bryce Harper has been under-hyped for his all world accomplishments this season. Remember, Mike Trout had a a short debut last year and didn’t perform nearly as well as Harper did this year. Courtesy of Fan Graphs you can see the astounding 4.9 WAR Harper posted in his first around the league, culminating with a ridiculous 1.043 OPS in Sept/Oct.

In the past I have stayed away from Harper cards for the most part, choosing to cherry pick and flip almost immediately, thinking the hype was overblown. I did buy in late July, after Harper posted a horrible month and I am glad I did. No we aren’t likely to see the percentage price increase we did with Trout, mainly because Harper has a ton of value and expectation already built in to his prices, but would it surprise anyone if he hits 40hrs next year and becomes Mike Stanton+? Mike Trout’s shadow may be just large enough to shift the focus off of Harper. If I was a betting man, this off season will be the calm before the storm.



With that being said, today with Bowman Chrome’s new release I did actually buy a box to rip for fun. I know, not smart….boxes never pay off….until they do.
