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

Visit our Daily Auctions page to see the latest sports card deals on auction ending daily! And listen to our podcast Cards To The Moon!

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.
