2010 Topps Update Baseball Super Short Print (SSP) List
2010 Topps Update Baseball Super Short Print (SSP) List

In typical Topps fashion, they have added a few Super Short Print cards to this years 2010 Topps Update. Of course, one of the SSP cards is Stephen Strasburg, as he remains the golden child for all 2010 Topps products.

Rookie Cup variations

Topps also added three “Rookie Cup” variations to three players who originally appeared in the Series 2 set. Omir Santos, Chris Getz, and Nolan Reimold each have Rookie Cup variation that shows a different photo from the Series 2 card, as well as a small Rookie Cup above the team logo on the front of the card.

Pie-in-the-Face variations

Along with each of these varaitions, Topps has continued the “Pie Face” variations for this set. The players with these variations are: 661 Stephen Strasburg, US-59 Jeanmar Gomez, US-251 Jake Arrieta, US-315 Edwin Jackson, and US-399 Matt Garza.

Legends Variations

Some of the base cards in the set have a Legends Variation that shares the same card number, here are the legends that appear in the Update set:

2010 Topps Update Baseball Jumbo All-Star Patches are amazing

Each year when Topps Update is released, I am amazed at some of the crazy, high-dollar cards that are inserted into this relatively cheap product. One of those inserts are the All-Star Game Jumbo Patch cards. This year, each card is numbered to 6, and some feature a sticker autograph on the card. These cards are simply beautiful and have been commanding some serious coin on the secondary market. Here are a few examples of some completed eBay auctions:

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.

Topps has been keeping Stephen Strasburg busy.

Topps recently sent out a bunch of redemption only Strasburg autographed cards, and they are slowly finding their way to the secondary market. Most notably are the 2010 Topps Tribute cards, which feature Strasburg’s auto along with relic’s from his first MLB game. These seem to come in single and dual relive forms. With variations of numbered to both 99 and 75.

Along with the Tribute autos, Strasburg was the cornerstone of the Topps Million Card Giveaway promotion.

Without a doubt, the only person to receive more hype in their young career than Stephen Strasburg is Bryce Harper. Fresh off consensus 2010 Golden Spikes award, given out to the years best amateur player, and his Number 1 overall selection by the Washington Nationals in this year’s MLB Draft, this 17-year-old phenom has caught the eyes of the media and made believers out of many baseball fans.

When Topps announced the addition of the USA set in their 2010 Bowman release, collectors began to speculate about the possibilities of Haper being included in the set – and the possibilities of the Harper Superfractor.

Harper has had previously released USA themed cards released by Upper Deck in 2008 and 2009, along with a promotional 2009 Bowman AFLAC card handed out at the 2008 AFLAC All-American game. Not until now, has anyone released a real “chase” card like the Superfractor.

The 2010 Bowman Chrome USA Bryce Harper Superfractor is currently (back) on eBay. Much like it’s much publicized Strasburg counterpart, it’s original listings were all ended due to improper and false bidding. The current auction, at $4,600 with the reserve not met, is just a fraction of what the Strasburg superfractor sold for. Red refractor version of Harper, which are numbered to 5, have been selling anywhere from $2,200 (ungraded) to $13,000 (BGS Pristine).

This card certainly has the potential of reaching near-Strasburgian heights in regards to price, however, I am not sure how well the price will maintain once Harper is included in a Draft version of Bowman, presumably at the end of this year. Hopefully, as an autographed version.
