Bryce Harper, Manny Machado Hottest Cards From 2010 Bowman Draft

Bryce Harper, Manny Machado Hottest Cards From 2010 Bowman Draft

2010 Bowman Draft released this past Wednesday and already the $69.99 per box product has delivered it's first $1,000+ sale on eBay. The card of note is a Jameson Taillon Superfractor Auto which sold for $2,200 earlier today. The talented Taillon was the first pitcher taken in the 2010 MLB Draft and the #2 overall pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Although Taillon tops the list of top 25 first week eBay sales, it's the two picks sandwiched around him from the 2010 MLB draft that are dominating single card sales of Bowman Draft. The two prospects I'm referring to are the #1 overall pick Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals and the #3 overall pick Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles, who combine for 12 of the top 25 sales. The Nationals outfielder has 5 card sales in the top 7, while the Orioles' phenom short stop leads all players with a total of 6 cards in the top 25 sales.

The 2010 Bowman Draft "production hit" (best card in the product) will likely be Manny Machado's 1/1 Superfractor Auto, which could easily top $4,000-$5,000 if and when it finds it's way onto eBay. If Bryce Harper had a Superfractor in the product, his card would easily qualify as the undisputed production hit. Unfortunately, Harper's only card comes way of an AFLAC Auto, which carries a print run of 230, which isn't high by any means, but compared to the Superfractor's print run of 1 it is.

  1. Smart move for them to keep Harper’s first card for next year’s products. Unfortunately for us, though, we’re probably going to be looking at a repeat of the “Stasburg tax” though maybe not to the same level. Oh, and congrats on the Twins’s big signing this past week, Brett!

  2. @David Tenneson: thanks man, I can’t wait to see him play, we needed a speed dynamic badly. last year we werent able to play small ball because of it and we play our best that way.

  3. @Brett: I hear that. More than anything, it’s nice to hear the Twins actually winning bids and closing contracts in these type situations. Also, I’m holding onto a couple of Sano Bowman cards after reading your enthusiasm associated with this guy. Watch out for the Twins!

  4. I have the 2010 auto chrome draft super refactor 1/1 auto
