Weekly Baseball Card Hot List for July 11 to 17
Last Week's Jump: $11-$31
After earning a promotion to the High-A Florida State league, Heathcott's Chrome autograph's have gone ballistic. In the last week they almost tripled in price, showing the hobby power of New York Yankees' prospects.
Last Week's Jump: $83-$102
The game's biggest prospect not named Harper burst on the MLB scene this week, causing his cards to jump significantly. Trout's call-up alone was enough to raise the value of his base autographs by about 20 percent. Look for this card to top out at $102 for now, as many feel it has peaked.
Last Week's Jump: $20-$32
With Short Season ball starting, a lot of prospects that were held back from starting the year in Class A have begun to play. Sano falls into this group and has been on a tear during his second week of the season. In his first week he struggled, which dropped this card down to $20. But after making Baseball America's hot sheet he is up to $32.
Last Week's Jump: $32-$50
Another Short Season performer, Lindsey has been off to a good start. Not much was expected from Lindsey in the hobby, since before he even played a game you could pick up this card for around $20. After two successful weeks he has shown a definite rise in prices. If he continues to hit, this trend will continue.
Last Week's Jump: $35-$50
Probably the hottest pitcher in all of baseball, Jair Jurrjens has been on a steady rise all season. This card probably could have been had for around $10 at the beginning of the season and now is at or over $50. If he continues to pitch the way he has during the first half, this card will continue to rise. This is Jurrjens' first autograph.
Last Week's Jump: $7-$10
One of the youngest players on the Midwest League circuit, Taijuan Walker has been unhittable of late and seems to be pitching above his level. Being his only Bowman autograph so far, it's bound to be one of his most sought after cards.
