Potential Bargain Alert: Lucas Giolito 2013 Bowman Chrome Prospect REFRACTOR autograph rookie

  • 2 min read

EDITOR’S NOTE: The card below sold for $35. Great deal!
The Chicago White Sox prospect Lucas Giolito, who was once considered a top 3 MLB prospect coming up in the Washington Nationals farm system, has seen his stock plummet over the last season.
His inconsistency is most likely to blame. Still, he’s a young pitcher and the organization as well as some sports writers, believe in his talent. Depending on how you feel and your risk tolerance, this could be a buy-low opportunity.
Screen Shot 2017-07-28 at 11.54.20 AM.pngHere’s one rookie that’s on the auction block now (as of July 28, 2017), which could be bought for good current market value.
 
CARD: 2013 Bowman Chrome Prospect REFRACTOR autographed card (numbered to 500) BGS Graded 9.5/10
CURRENT BID PRICE: $35 (as of 11:47 a.m. EST with about 11 hours left in the auction)
SUGGESTED MAX PRICE: $50 (The refractor card was sold on June 6 for $79.99. But on May 7, it was sold for $43.10. That latter value seemed to be a case of being at the right place at the right time. But it’s still a good gauge in regards to how low one can go for this card. There is also a Buy It Now price of $84.99.)
AUCTION ENDS: July 28, 2017 at 11:03 p.m. EST.
BONUS: Here’s the card with a later auction end time (Sunday, July 30 at 5:22 p.m.) still under the $50 max bid suggestion at the time this post was published.
