He was MLB's #20, but even if he is in top 10 BA, good chance he tears it up in AA as he is going to start the year there (92 ABs, .326, 5 HRs, .948 OPS). I'd say you could expect him to find the BA list in April a few times. If he does well in the WBC, prices could go even higher.

I got to see him play against Gerrit Cole in Portland last year and saw Bogaerts destroy a pitch off of a fellow top 10 prospect. Retribution for K'ing against him in the futures game, I guess. I'm very excited to see this kid in Boston, hopefully next season.

Just depends on what kind of solid offers you get because money talks and that is the bottom line.You can just put a high bin and let the offers begin and if you don't like what you see don't worry because sooner or later somebody will give you a offer to think about.

It also depends if you need the money for something else and to answer your question I would hold.

I have no problem holding this card. I'm not in need of $$ atm. I might just put the card up for possibly 1499/BO? Do you think that's too high?

Depends on how much you paid for it and how much you are looking to make.

Id imagine if you've had that card for a while you'd do just fine if you sold today.

I would hold for now. If he tears up the minors and his prices are higher than ever, then I would sell.

I would hold for several reasons:

He plays for the Red Sox and they have a big fan base(Not to mention in a wealthy part of the nation)

Wait until BA Top 100 comes out if you feel he is Top 10 why go against your gut?
