Bryce Harper Superfractor lands in my backyard


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor | Commentary

Sometimes you have to wonder where The Big One might land.

They’re in every product it seems, and they seemingly always end up on eBay for the world to see.

But in the case of the 2012 Bowman Platinum Bryce Harper Superfractor?

Well, it ended up in a pack in a box in my present hometown card shop, Nick’s Sports Cards in Dallas, Texas. It just might have been in a box that could have been mine little over a week ago — I bought one and you can see the results by clicking here.

This explains my call from the shop this morning that I hadn’t yet been able to answer, and I had planned to get there today before a dead car battery … guys, I’ll see you tomorrow afternoon. (And I’ll see if I can get more details then, too. I do know that it’s headed to Beckett Grading Services, though.)

Wow. That is all.

    U would think the best, sexiest patch would be on this card. I had a customer pull the exact same looking patch/25 & there are several crazier patches on cards /25

    Sigh my one box had a Jay Bruce Redemption, Telvin Nash Redemption and Vinnie Catricala.
    Can’t wait to see what he gets for it. I think i would rather keep the cash than buy more cards with it.
