Now of course this is no superfractor (I don’t believe it’s been pulled yet).  However Harper’s Red Refractors (#’s 3 and 4 of 5) have recently sold on eBay.  Nearly $1400 a pop.  Again, this is for a non signed, no memorabilia card.  Now I know that Harper is absolutely killing the ball at the College of Southern Nevada, and I know he’s only 16, but my god how dumb do you have to be to drop $1400 on this card?

Again the best he can hope for is to hit 500+ homers and go to the Hall of Fame.  The odds are stacked against him.  What if he turns into a Ryan Klesko or Robin Ventura?  Both were hyped power hitters, both had nice careers, but their rookie refractors (if they had one) would have not broken $100 let alone $1000.  My point is, this isn’t prospecting anymore, this is paying top dollar for a dream.  It’s likely never to sell for much more than the $1400.

How much would you pay for this now?  How much do you think it’s going to max out at?  When he retires, how much will it be worth? I’m curious if I’m the only one who feels this way.

    This kid is a shoo-in, can’t miss, humdinger, first ballot kind of guy!

    Just like that Gregg Jeffries kid.

    But back then, we had to pay more for that extra “g”. Ink was expensive in the 80s. It could only be produced from John DeLorean’s tears.

    This set has been way to hyped. When you drop $16,000 on a Strausburg refractor or $1,400 on a kid not even in the Majors it is time to re-evaluate life.
