Sports Trading Card Price Tracker We talk a lot about price movement of single cards and sports trading card boxes on The Sports Card Show Podcast. Each month we'll pick some hot items in the sports card world and monitor the price action over the month. Sometimes we make prediction on if the price is going to go up or down.

Please Note:
  • Prices are from 2014. Will update when next Bowman set releases. Or just look them up on eBay.
  • Card prices are for ungraded base autographs.
  • Many Bowman cards end up graded. High grades sell for more. No kidding.
  • Parallel autographs are worth more. Duh.
  • 99% of Bowman Autographs made over the years are essentially worthless.
  • Some players sign upwards of 10,000 autographs for one Bowman set.
  • Bowman Busts = a player who was worth good money and then price tanked.

It seems clear that the allure of the unknown aides the prices of prospect baseball cards. Even as players go onto have success (and actually reach the big leagues) their cards can actually go down in value. Most people, even Bowman collectors, don't go to minor league games. Fans typically read about prospects through media sources and look at stats.

I asked a New York Mets scout at the 2013 Arizona Fall League what are some of the things I should look for when watching young players. His first comment was "Don't believe everything you read in Baseball America's Prospect Handbook."

The first time I saw Byron Buxton play he struck out four times. That's actually hard to do.

Brandon Wood hit 14 HR's in 29 games at the Arizona Fall League in 2005. That's hard to do.

Wood has a .186 career batting average in 700 MLB at bats. 18 total HR's.

The first time I saw Mark Appel pitch he walked 4 in 2 Innings on July 25, 2013.

The first time I saw Carlos Correa it seemed like he could be over matched by hard throwers.

The first time I saw Kris Bryant play he hit a HR.

Bryant will need to hit a ton of HR's to justify card prices. He strikes out a lot because he is tall.

Billy Hamilton is as fast as everyone says he is.

Trevor Bauer's pre-game long toss is the most impressive thing I've ever seen on a baseball diamond.

Quick bats/wrists = Addison Russell & Javier Baez.

Tanner Peters pitched the best minor league game I've ever seen. 2 outs from a perfect game.

Peters will probably never play in the major leagues.

I've been to many minor league games where I didn't see a pitch reach 90 MPH.

At least 50% of the HR's I've seen hit at Banner Island Ballpark would be outs in Major League stadiums.

Very, very few players turn into Albert Pujols, Mike Trout and Derek Jeter.

The best player I've ever seen, Barry Bonds, is generally shunned by collectors & the baseball community.

I'm fully aware Bonds used steroids for part of his career.

Last year we took a look at 2011 Topps & Bowman Case prices at years end. I got some feedback that prices during the release date window or 'peak' selling season might give a more accurate reflection of the kind of profit you can make. So I've added both the 4 weeks after release High/Low prices & the December year end prices.

At the time of writing this, some sets had only been out for about a month, so the data only reflects the release date window prices.

Remember that even modest profits above do not reflect costs of doing business. From what I've heard, getting an eBay Power Seller Discount is often the difference between making money and loosing money for some sellers.

I do all my historical eBay Research here .
