Default Why are "Target Exclusive" Harper RCs selling so high??

You guys will have to excuse my special posts but I just can't do "research" on these types of things, so I gotta ask because I'm really curious.

I had a Gift card for Target, naturally I spent it on cards since I have the bug again, I bought a bunch of random packs of topps update and pulled 3 "Red bordered" Bryce Harper RCs.

I have several of his rookie cards, Bowman, Bowman Chrome BDPP and the stupid target card is selling for as high as $30?? I don't get it. Why does this happen?

Also, for RCs like Harper, am I stupid to sell any of them now? I feel like I'll sit on most until the season starts again but this Target thing seems odd, like it shouldn't happen and I feel as though I should sell them now since I have 3 (I'll keep 1).

Simple, they aren't selling for $30 anymore. More about $15. They were selling at $30 when the product came out. Look at recent sales. Nice hits

Well there's still one live with 5 days and it's already at $15 haha.

Wait, they were selling for $430??

I guess what I'm really asking is, will these taper off or just go up later when the season kicks off, assuming Harper does well?

Oops forgot a $ sign haha. They will go up for sure when the season starts, lots of baseball cards will. And if Harper does well, even more. I wouldn't sell any Harper until the season kicks in.
