This edition of the Beckett Pricing Insider is sponsored by MVP Sports Collectibles.
2018 Bowman Draft released last week and, already, it’s the hottest product on the market. Love them or hate them, Bowman Chrome and Bowman Chrome Draft Autographs always seem to dominate the monthly Beckett Baseball Hot Lists. So, after the first full weekend of sales, let’s take a look at three of the early best sellers from 2018 Bowman Draft.
1. 2018 Bowman Chrome Draft Autographs Nolan Gorman #CDANG ($75-$200)
Drafted 17th overall by the Cardinals in last June’s Draft, Gorman played in 63 games last season between Rookie and Class A, hitting .291 with 17 home runs and 44 RBI. MLB.com ranked the 18-year-old as the 73rd best prospect in baseball at the end of the season. Gorman has 275 cards in the Online Price Guide, many of which come from the 2017 Leaf Metal Perfect Game product.
