Shortly after Bowman released their 2013 Bowman Chrome series, a listing on EBay announced to the world what the biggest pull of the collection would be, a Yasiel Puig Prospect Autographs Superfractor card numbered one of one. Listed on Ebay at a mere $25,000 the card didn’t immediately sell, but 13 bids were placed before the listing was pulled. Later it was found to have been purchased by South Bay Baseball Cards.
It has since been reported that South Bay Baseball Cards intends to repackage and include the card in their Super Box product line and the Puig card is predicted to be the most coveted card in South Bay Baseball Cards’ upcoming 2013 “Super Box Rookie and Phenoms Baseball,” collection that is slated for release on Oct. 23 of this year.
This limited edition buyback product will center rookie cards of phenoms throughout baseball history from players like Joe DiMaggio and Hank Aaron to guys like Manny Machado and Bryce Harper and, of course, one lucky Super Box will contain the lusted after Yasiel Puig card!
What makes a Superfractor card so special? Superfractors are Chrome Mini cards that are considered by collectors to be the cream of the crop of all rookie cards. Each player’s card is the only one of its kind numbered on the back 1/1 and are shiny and embellished on the front. In the past Superfractor cards for Stephen Stasburg and Bryce Harper in 2010 and Clayton Kershaw in 2006 have commanded anywhere between seventeen and twenty one thousand dollars. Already publicly priced at $25,000 there is no knowing how high the price on Yasiel Puig’s Superfractor Rookie Card will go but it is already clear that it will be well into the five figure range. There is no doubt that this card ranks as the number one pull of 2013 and will be one of the most highly priced cards in history.
