Default 2013 Bowman Autograph Redemption Question!

Just picked up a blaster of 2013 Bowman Football and pulled a Bowman Autograph Redemption Card of Matt Barkley. Does anyone have any info on these? What they look like, if they're numbered, on card or sticker auto, value? Hold, Sell or Redeem?

Edit-Just got an offer of $115, should I accept or counter?

Hold but only if you plan on doing so long term. But I think selling is the best option. His prices are never going to be higher than they are now. And if it does go higher, it'll be when he becomes a starter, IF that ever happens.

Pardon my ignorance, but what has made his prices go so high? I know nothing about the rookies in this product. I mainly do baseball. Has he been doing well in College Ball, or do QB's usually sell well? Sorry for all the questions and thanks for the info!

After much research...I have found that these are indeed very short printed (according to topps via Topps FB Twitter page), it will be on card, and that the players will be in their NFL unifroms instead of their College uniforms like the others.

QB's always sell well. If you were to have an offensive hierarchy in this hobby it would go QB, RB, WR.

For Barkley specifically, he was a good QB for a very popular college in USC. So he already has a rabid college fan base which will pump up the values as opposed to if he attended a smaller less collected school.

Thank you for the info! Topps says these are "very rare" and that the players will be pictured in their NFL Uniforms instead of College Unis so that coupled with "very rare" and a good name=an awesome card from a lone Blaster box that will sell very well! That is if I do decide to sell it.

No problem. It's a very good hit you got there. That's one to hold on to when you get the card in my opinion.

Yeah, I'm on the fence about it. I'd love to see what it's going to look like and if it's numbered.

I would sell it faster that you can say Miggy Cabrera Triple Crown.

1. It's a redemption (Topps doesn't have the best track Record)
2. He's a USC kid. People will pay for that.
3. If you don't get it for a year and Topps decides to replace it on you then you might get a Michael Vick Auto /99 as a replacement.

SELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL now.

Sell it before Topps Chrome comes out.. After that, it'll go way down

Any idea on how much it's worth? Only two have sold, but neither have really stated what it is going to be. I've noticed other players have sold cheap but that was due to lack of knowledge of these cards and what they are. I was thinking of a BIN/BO.

$500/BO
Auto Decline anything under $50 Auto Accept $200

That's my line

if there is a black /25 for like $200 b/o $500 for this one would be funny hehe

people already know about this cards. and paid twice $50 for one

if they didn't know then they would sell at $30-40

its a risk with this cards, as they are not real rookies and won't complete rainbows.. and who knows if it will take 7 months for them to be redeemed like topps chrome last year lol

You know these are turning out to be rarer than the black at this time, right?

Thinking of listing these 2 on eBAY and seeing what happens. I've seen a couple Manuel black redemption, but haven't seen one of these yet.

I disagree. Sellers don't know what they have as there is practically no info on these cards. Nothing was mentioned in the descriptions as to what these cards really are.

exactly. so its a gamble and therefore sometimes people don't like to gamble as to what they will get or even when.

I would say people already know these are /25 or less and in nfl uniforms specially the ones buying them..

I think you're confused with the bowman black autos.. those are the really valuable super sp cards where they will be in their nfl jerseys on a thicker card stock that's black background and numbered to like ten I believe..

There's a reason these are redemptions. Topps has confirmed these are "very limited" and that they will feature players in their NFL Uniforms. These will be Chrome Refractor Autos featuring said players in NFL Uniforms.

Sell, sell, and sell. I'm still waiting on multiple 2012 Topps Chrome auto redemptions, along with a couple of 2011.

Like others have said, it's very likely you won't see this for 3+ months and a very good chance it could be at the end of the season - they will say something along the lines of "the cards are being produced, there was an issue with our printer, once we receive them in 94 days, then the athlete will sign" 4 months later, they will say "we are waiting on the athlete to sign these cards, please check back in 12 weeks if you have not received your card" at which time, they will do nothing.

I used to redeem EVERY card I ever pulled, loving the idea of getting a mystery package in the mail, after losing literally thousands of dollars in value do to wait time or replacements, I no longer redeem any cards.

You can always wait to see if/when they start to show up live, but then Topps only does their bulk/batch shipping every few months

Such an awesome card that a year ago, I would have begged you to sell it to me, so I could redeem, now - not so much

Yeah, I threw it up on ebay. And Topps confirmed via reply to my tweet as to what this card will be.
