Sky-Walker Weickel

If a guaranteed first round draft pick in the June MLB Draft already had a Bowman Chrome auto, you'd be excited. But if there only existed 900 total copies, of all variations, you should be ecstatic.

Such is the case with Walker Weickel. Released in the 2011 Bowman Chrome USA 18u National Team Autograph insert set, Weickel's autograph (as well as the others in the set) have pretty limited print runs. The parallels are as follows:

  • Refractor: #/417
  • X-Fractor: #/299
  • Blue: #/99
  • Gold: #/50
  • Orange: #/25
  • Red: #/5
  • Superfractor: 1/1
  • Printing Plates: 1/1 - 4 different colored plates

That means only about 900 Weickel Bowman Chrome Autos exist.

Right now, this is an incredible investment. The smart investors are grabbing these for their collections at the moment, and supply is already starting to dry up. Once the June MLB draft comes around, Weickel will start becoming a household name (predicted by many to be a top 10 pick)... think Taillon or Pomeranz.

Once people start learning about Weickel and reading scouting reports, demand will rise quickly. Yet, the supply will not be there as most will already have been scooped up. Low supply + high demand = huge prices. Simple economics.

Recommendation: STRONG BUY
