Default Boom. Nice Bryce Harper late night ebay steal.

Man haven't had one of these to brag about in a loooooooooong time, and it's a good one. So now that I have talked to the buyer and got tracking on the card it's safe to show it off to ya'll.

Ended early this morning when ebay was going haywire and went down around midnight my time 3 am est or so. got lucky ot get the bid in on this one. Also didn't help that the listing was bad and mising some keywords. Thought for sure this was gonna get sniped last second but didn't.

The patch is amazing on this thing. Check it out!

I love how he has the full card description in the listing but not the title, where most of it would have fit.

yeah. i love when people list with ebay mobile app. no one wants to type a bunch of detail from their phones, so they just list it as quick as possible. i just wish i would find these types of deals more often, lol.

What do they usually go for?

$255 for a second year sticker auto patch from a second tier set seems about right

That could be an "8" auto. Double streaking plus running off card...I would leave it as-is if I were you.

Harper's cards are quite expensive for a guy batting .277 with 18 HR, 47 RBI. Don't get me wrong I like the guy but the hype is too much for me.

If you don't have the autograph graded do people get suspicious?

Beckett always puts the auto grade on the card no matter what. Sometimes you can get lucky with a bad auto grade and it will be on the back. But I have asked time after time to grade certain cards without and auto grade and that is just not how they operate.

Future potential can't possibly be a factor.

That's a sure 8 auto. Streaky and runs off. Still great card. PSA might be your best bet.

I know a guy who can fix up that auto for you, even add his twitter handle to it as well.

See what I did there.
