Our Top 10 List of Joe Flacco’s Best Rookie Cards



Yesterday, we brought you the Top 10 list of Colin Kaepernick Rookie Cards. Today, we are going to focus on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Flacco has been the starter for Baltimore since his 2008 rookie year, after being drafted in the first round out of the University of Delaware. Flacco has a huge frame, standing at 6’6″ and weighing 250 lbs, making his body the prototypical size for a NFL quarterback. What makes him even more special is his arm strength, which typically assists in most of Joe’s down field big plays.

Currently his cards are at a much more affordable level than his counterpart Kaepernick, but that won’t last if Joe is the one holding up the trophy at the end of the game.

Interesting 2010 Topps Chrome Stephen Strasburg Autograph Sales Data

2010 Topps Chrome Baseball has been on the streets for about two full weeks now. Without a doubt, the biggest buzz around this product has been the Stephen Strasburg Chrome Autographs that were inserted in the product. Even after Strasburg’s season was cut short due to his injury, his secondary market prices have not bottomed out, completely.

I have compiled some data from eBay on the sales of all of the 2010 Topps Chrome Stephen Strasburg Autographs to date. Check out the table to see some very interesting data:

Card Number of Sales Average High Low
2010 Topps Chrome Base AU 16 $138.96 $174.50 $104.50
2010 Topps Chrome Base AU Redemption 9 $137.99 $178.00 $91.26
2010 Topps Chrome Refractor AU 37 $164.95 $225.00 $124.00
2010 Topps Chrome Blue Refractor AU 11 $258.34 $360.00 $150.00
2010 Topps Chrome Gold Refractor AU 3 $399.33 $449.99 $348.00
2010 Topps Chrome Red Refractor AU 2 $675.00 $700.00 $650.00

There has been 12 more sales of the Refractor version of the Chrome Autograph, for a card that is numbered to 499 verse a card that is unnumbered and has better odds of pulling, this is a bit of a head scratcher why there hasn’t been more base chrome auto pop-up for sale.

To date, there has been 78 successful sales on eBay regarding any variation of a 2010 Topps Chrome Strasburg Auto, collectively selling for a grand total of $14,958.16, or an average of $191.77 per card.

Is now the best time to unload your Maurice Clarett cards



There comes a time in every collectors life where they need to ask themsleves if now is the best time to cut their loses and attempt to sell a failed investment quest. Recently, a rash of low numbered, hard to find Maurice Clarett cards have popped up on eBay from a single seller, and it begs me to ask the question: “Is now the best time to unload your Maurice Clarett cards?” Clarett, who is 2 years into a 7 year prison term, will probably never see action in the NFL, but still remains a favorite for quite a few Buckeye collectors. Check out this amazing stash of Clarett cards to find their way on to eBay over the last week:

As of October 2008, Clarett has been blogging about his life in prison on The Mind of Maurice Clarett; although he does not have Internet access in the prison, he sends his entries to family members, who post them for him.

2006 Bowman Chrome Draft Evan Longoria Rainbow on eBay



There is nothing more beautiful than a rainbow, especially if it’s made up an amazing collection of a young and talented Evan Longoria 2006 Bowman Chrome Draft Auto. Just like at the end of a real rainbow, the owner of this sweet collection is hoping there is a pot of gold for them at the end of the auction. With a BIN of $350,000.00, this 2006 Bowman Chrome Draft Auto Evan Longoria Rainbow is sure to grab some attention. With a majority of the cards in the collection a BGS 9.5 or PSA 10 – you are going to be hard pressed to find a set in better condition, but, for $350k – I could find a lot better things to spend my money on.

As always, happy bidding!
