Card prices are down across the board, and I thought it would be a good idea to see how some top prospects are selling. Let's take a look at 2020 and 2021 products. I will focus on 2022 in a few weeks as 2022 Bowman Draft is still fresh. Winter was always a good time to buy historically as there was no activity and collectors were focusing on other sports. I am using recent auctions on Ebay for analysis. I will be mostly look at base, but I also have looked at PSA 10s and other sales.
2020 Bowman Draft Baseball
Note - This draft class is pretty good overall compared to recent classes.
Heston Kjerstad - Baltimore Orioles OF - Selling for around $75. Had a huge Arizona Fall League.
Jordan Walker - St. Louis Cardinals 3B - Walker is such a stud that I could not find any sales. Everyone is holding.
Ed Howard - Chicago Cubs SS - Prices have crashed as he has struggled. People overpaid and are scared to sell so they are holding. Still time though to get better.
Austin Hendrick - Cincinnati Reds OF - Similar to Howard. No one is really selling as they overpaid.
Zac Veen - Colorado Rockies OF - I'm seeing base go for about $100 maybe less at a show.
Tyler Soderstrom - Oakland Athletics C - I've seen about $75 for Tyler sometimes lower. He's a stud.
Pete Crow-Armstrong - New York Mets OF - Now with the Cubs and prices are up as he had a really good season. I'm seeing refractors go for $200. Not much base out there.
Evan Carter - Texas Rangers OF - Base is going for $100 and refractors are double.
Nick Gonzales - Pittsburgh Pirates SS - Not a ton of base out there. Prices seem low to me. Watch out for future auctions.
Nick Yorke - Boston Red Sox 2B - Big time price correction here. His cards were hot then he started to struggle. Combine that with a slowing market and you got a card that has lost a ton of value.
Robert Hassell - San Diego Padres OF - Base is going for around $100.
2020 Bowman Chrome Baseball
Luisangel Acuña - Texas Rangers 2B/SS - Another correction. In that $50-$75 range.
Logan O'Hoppe - Philadelphia Phillies - Now on the Angels. Around $40.
Francisco Alvarez - New York Mets C - Base is high. Well over $100. Being a Met helps.
2020 Bowman Baseball
Anthony Volpe - New York Yankees SS – Prices are high. Very high.
Brennen Davis - Chicago Cubs OF – Top org prospect that is selling for about $40.
Jasson Dominguez - New York Yankees OF – Oh man. Prices have crashed for this guy. His PSA 10 base auto is selling for about the same price as Volpe. I would rather buy Volpe right now.
Bobby Witt Jr. - Kansas City Royals SS – PSA 10 base is around $1000.
2021 Bowman Draft Baseball
Jay Allen - Cincinnati Reds OF - The base that I did see was around $25-30. That's a great price if you like him as a prospect.
Christian Encarnacion-Strand - Minnesota Twins 3B - Seen low as $30 but high as $50. Maybe people are not convinced.
Jordan Lawlar - Arizona Diamondbacks SS - Around $250 I'm seeing. I cant be mad at that price.
Marcelo Mayer - Boston Red Sox SS - In that $200 range. I think I am higher on Lawlar.
2021 Bowman Chrome Baseball
Carlos Colmenarez - SS (Rays) - Prices are around $30. Good time to buy before the season. Do you research though.
Cristian Hernandez - SS (Cubs) – Prices around $100. Cubs effect.
2021 Bowman Baseball
Johan Rojas - Philadelphia Phillies OF – I've see $20-30. I think that is very fair.
Hedbert Perez - Milwaukee Brewers OF – I've seen $15-20. These were going for $100 at one point.
Yoelqui Cespedes - Chicago White Sox OF - See above.
