Bryce Harper’s Futures Game items heat up auction
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Bryce Harper didn’t have a good say Sunday but that doesn’t really matter.
The batting helmet and cap used by the 18-year-old Washington Nationals outfield prospect during his 0-for-4 day at the Futures Game as part of the MLB All-Star Game festivities have hit the auction block and they’re in demand.
How much interest is there?
He’s the most-expensive player among the items up for grabs so far in the entire selection of MLB Auctions items for the All-Star Game.
His Nationals cap has attracted the most attention money-wise with bidding sitting at $910 after just seven bids.
The batting helmet? Eleven bids totaling $756 with more than six days remaining in the auctions.
Both items have been authenticated by MLB and have a hologram with its documentation entered into the MLB Authentication database.
