2010 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects, Early Sales Analysis

So, the product is live for more than a week now and, as expected, it is the hot topic in the Baseball community.

Sales analysis…

Outside of the usual suspects (Machado, Heyward, Strasburg, Taillon) the big hits are not fetching much money, even the low numbered red refractors and the rare case hit USA Aflac Autos.

This trend will probably move around spring training when the names become familiar but right now, this product is not a good investment for flipping.

On the other hand, you can buy low and wait on the market to dry a bit (say around february) and then flip the hits or the hobby boxes.

I was surprised to see that the numbering on the AFLAC autos did not impact sales prices all that much. Same goes for Auto’ed or not Orange refractors. The product is kind of cold right now, probably due to the holiday season.

My advice : Keep an eye on it but don’t buy unless you have to. Some singles might be worth buying though, the lesser known prospects can be steal at this stage of the hobby season.

So let’s discuss or better, share your breaks. How did you do with this product so far?
