How hot are Jason Heyward's baseball cards?

Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward’s baseball cards have been among the hottest in the hobby for the last month or so and an apparent eBay sale this weekend shows that once again.

His 2008 Bowman Chrome Prospects SuperFractor reportedly sold for $7,000 on Sunday, a transaction that has not yet been verified on eBay.

While that’s some substantial money for a hot rookie’s card, it’s not the most ever paid for a SuperFractor. Here’s a rundown of the 30 previous most-expensive Beckett-documented sales (note that the 2005 Ryan Braun has reportedly changed hands a few times) of Bowman Chrome SuperFractors as tracked by Beckett Baseball Senior Market Analyst Brian Fleischer

We missed that one on purpose, sir. Of course, one other publication didn’t …

That’s just crazy on a cardboard that’s not even 2 years old and a player never seen in a Major League game yet. Jason is a sure thing to make the team and beat out Matt Diaz for the spot. But $7,000 ??? . . . come on now.

I resold the Buster Posey offline for $4000, just for your information.

Silly prices.

Out of all those only 3 or 4 players will amount to anything, THIS is yet another reason why the hobby is failing.
