I have seen a number of debates on various message boards regarding if people preferred the 2012 Bowman Chrome Blue Wave Autos over the Gold Refractor Autos. Both of the cards are numbered to 50, and the Blue Wave Autos have definite appeal over the Gold refractors, but do the consumers like them better? Check out the sales data compiled from eBay over the last couple weeks. The prices seem pretty similar, however with a much smaller Blue Wave sample size, it looks as if the Gold Refractors are edging them out in sales prices.
