I understand you're new to the forum, but please try to make sense. "Is his oly auto card a projections card ?" Does not mean anything.


And this, "If topps issues a auto" is not a complete sentence.

It does not go up or down in value, regardless of whether or not topps issues an auto.

I still have no idea what you're talking about though. Search completed eBay auctions for your card. You are probably talking about wild fluctuations in sellin price between 25 cents and a dollar.

medlen auto| eBay

Easy answer; No, your Projections AUTO will not hold value. I have zero doubt that there will be Medlen AUTO's in 2013, and the only possible scenario where one of them is considered an invesment quality card long term is if it is a 2006 Bowman Draft/Chrome Buyback AUTO, which is certainly a posibility. I'm not sure how Medlen will hold up as a Starter, does he throw a high percentage of Sliders? If so, his elbow will not last just like Francisco Liriano's when he was the best Pitcher in all of baseball in 2006, when he was throwing somewhere around 70-75% Sliders after coming out of the Bullpen. I'd love to talk to those brilliant investors who were paying $1000-$1200 for his 2002 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor and 2002 Bowman's Best Gold AUTO.

I shouldn't downplay Medlen without knowing his stuff. I do know that he was the best Pitcher in baseball in the second half of the 2012 season; R.A. Dickey, Justin Verlander, Clayton Kershaw, and David Price were all a complete joke vs. Medlen's stats (9-0, 0.94 ERA, 95 K's in 95 IP).

Still, to the OP's question, nobody will ever care about those TriStar Projections AUTO's, even if Medlen holds up his stats, they can only go down from here because he will no doubt get more AUTO's and Buyback and rookie reprint AUTO's.

I'm almost positive he will have autograph cards in 2013 after he broke the record at the end of the season

Medlen has 2 autos, 2009 and 2011, both tristar. Both have various parallels.

Its not a rookie. His first mainstream cards were 2006, and while his RC cards (Rookie Logo) were 2009, Minor league cards are never considered RC cards and insert cards are never considered RC cards. This is a minor league insert.

It IS his first autograph and will likely remain highly sought after no matter how many other autos he ends up having.

But with that said, future autographs WILL certainly hurt the value of the tristar ones to some degree. Now is probably about the peak this card will be at UNLESS Medlen continues to dominate and all of his cards go up significantly (and they are already pretty high now). He'd have to produce Verlander type numbers for a full season for his cards to raise beyond what they are now, IMO.
