Beckett Baseball: Ask the editor

RE: Beckett Baseball: Ask the editor
Hello! I've been keeping a look out for the 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospects Red Wave Refractors #111-220 that were part of the 2012 Bowman Chrome Wrapper Redemption. The Blue Waves were added back in January. Just wondering if this set may have been overlooked? Thank You!

COLLECTING: All StL Cardinals -- R. Howard, L. Harrell, B. DeWitt, B. Ziegler -- NASCAR: R. Wallace, J. McMurray, C. Bowyer, Dillon Bros, D. Pearson -- Political Cards & Inserts -- KU Jayhawks in the Pros (NBA & NFL) -- SA Spurs: D. Robinson, T. Duncan, K. Leonard

RE: Beckett Baseball: Ask the editor
1. Why are the 1996 Skybox Circa, 1997 Circa, 1998 Circa Thunder cards are not listed in the baseball price guides? There are some great insert cards in those Circa sets.
2. What is the logic of the 1999 Finest Aaron Award Contenders refractor cards being 1.2x of the regular card when a regular Finest refractor is 8x the regular card?

Thanks

ratio. there are a lot more finest base cards compared to refractors than of the finest insert series compared to the refractor parallel

Do you think that card companies will ever do away with retail packs? I have wondered this for a long time. I am sure that they make a ton money on them because the odds of pulling something are slim and the price point is similar to hobby packs in most cases. I propose that retail stores buy in on hobby packs and maybe they can package each pack in those cardboard blisters with the plastic around the packs. In my case the closest hobby shop is an hour away so it makes it tough for me to get to the shop when I get that itch. And it is very discouraging when you spend $100 at Walmart on blasters and you don't get anything decent to show for it. I know pack searchers are always going to be a factor but their are ways to beat them. I think it would be a more sound investment for retail store to start carrying hobby. Walmart and Target do get hobby boxes once and a while and they usually fly off the shelf. I would love to be able to go to Walmart and buy some packs will the same odds of pulling a decent card.

I would love to know what you think.

Thanks

Chad Clark


Retail is very successful for some companies. I don't see it going away any time soon.

Hey Chris,

I have a 2012 Bowman Chrome Bryce Harper Blue Refractor Autograph redemption. The card has not come in yet. But when I check Beckett for pricing it says that the print run is 250 but when I check other players rookie autograph blue refractor on ebay they are live and numbered out of 99 not 250. My question is...Is that a typo on the online price guide and will it effect the pricing of the card if it's numbered out of 99 instead of 250?

Thanks,

Chad

We'll find out when the Harper cards arrive on the quantity. The pricing range is based on the actual sales of the redemption card so it doesn't really matter either way. If it turns out to be lower, then it might be a bargain relatively speaking, but only way we'll know for sure if there's an uptick in sales once the cards are available.

Hi Chris,

Just a heads up, if you don't know by now, but whoever entered the 2013 Gypsy Queen checklist in the OPG, made a typo .... or .... doesn't have spell check Smile
In the OPG, the Glove Stories subset is misspelled as Golve Stories!

Thought you'd like to know,

Send an email to bfleischer@beckett.com -- which would be the same regarding any checklist updates or additions.
