Default My 2014 Bowman Story

Was already happy with my 4 jumbo box 2 team group break of 2014 Bowman Chrome.

Had Nationals, Royals & Tigers. Royals & Tigers being a combo team. Got a lot of refractors/inserts/parallels/chrome/ice.

Combo team nearly made up for being skunked on the Nationals, so that was a good thing!

Than at the end of the break in the last box, The breaker pulls me a Green Refractor Auto of Nick Castellanos /75.

Easy a $100-200.00 card.

Its been an amazing ride on my group breaks lately at a perfect time.

I think you may want to check the ending prices on Castellanos autos from chrome and adjust your expectations.

I checked the green autos for the set. Green autos are more desirable than other refractors. His base auto has been selling at $5-10.00.

Green auto is /75.

I'd rather compare it to similar Green Refractors who are like Castellanos.

Abreu Green Refractors have been selling between $500-750.00 or so & Jose Fernandez at that mcuh.

Castellanos is a teir below Abreu & Fernandez.

Cards in similar have been selling between $75.00 & $250.00.

The average scrub green refractor sells for $50.00.

I've done my research so far. Prices may settle a bit after release.

Castellanos is not a tier below Abreu and Fernandez. Those two guys are way ahead of him, especially a RC not a prospect.

But Castellanos is definitely not a scrub. He has a tendency to get hot. Not on the same level as Fernandez or Abreu.

Two Castellanos Gold #/50 autos have sold - one for $75 and one for $71. I would think your card will sell for around $50.

Yes /75 would be around $50 but its more because it is out of /20...

Oh, ok. The OP said it was out of /75 in his original post and that's what I was going by. Then #/20 will definitely command a premium!

I have to double check the card when I get it. The breaker said it was out of 75. He could probably have not looked at the back & assumed it was a normal green.

It could be a SP. Maybe Topps didn't get all the Castellanos in or some got damaged.

Has happened before in products. I'll post a mail day when I get it in.

Edit: The seller of that auction Castellanos is really smart! He ended it at the end of Saturday afternoon! Sure chance that could easily jump to $100+ if the Tigers have a good game or if a lot of people are searching ebay listening to games.

Yet you didn't know it was /20. Just saying. There's a lot of knowledge here with regard to pricing, don't dismiss it just because it's lower than what you hoped for.


Going to have to say this is around $90 right now while the product is hot. Highly dependent on Castellanos' performance going forward.




EDIT: You're still not paying attention:

Rookie green refractors are /20. Prospects are /75. The breaker probably just didn't know this.

I'm confused on why you're comparing this card to prospect autos? You've been on the site for a while and you should've recognized a long time ago that rookie autos are no where near as desirable as prospect autos.

That being said nice card, can't beat pulling that when you have two crappy teams in the break!

Nice card...... Would have been thrilled to pull it, but it is no where near $100. Easily $50, at most $80 (for about the next week). RC no where near as desirable as Prospect.

I think a green auto is set to end in 12 hours which is Saturday cartoon time

LOL, not sure why the OP thought that the seller was "really smart" for having the item end when it does. The item ends Saturday morning at 7am, quite possibly the worst possible time to end an item.

I was off all day yesterday. Was a rough day.

Sorry for the confusion. I honestly didn't know the card was /20. Even the breaker thought it was /75.

Bllue Refractors are pushing $50.00,

Gold Refractors are in the $75.00 range right now.

I'm assuming Preakness is right about $90.00. I'll probably list at $200.00 o.b.o and field offers.

Edit: Not to beat a dead subject, but the Black Refractor Auto /35 sold for $175.00 via best offer.

Thanks for the value help. I didn't see it end at all. I think I checked at 8:00. May be a different time zone.

I figured it was around there. I have a feeling Castellanos may go on a hot streak again this year with the Tigers so hot right now.

Let's see op makes a post expressing his excitement
And there are at least 6 posts in this thread telling him not to be as excited/card isn't worth as much

My god just say good hit and then leave
