This card probably ranks as the #1 pull of the year.
I was cruising around eBay during lunch and came across this beauty. Up for sale with a $30,000.00 "Buy It Now" price is the above 2013 Bowman Chrome Mini Superfractor rookie card of Yasiel Puig. It was pulled out of a Jumbo box just a couple of weeks ago.
Someone is about to cash in.
A Superfractor is a seeded parallel card numbered to just one copy of each player in the set. In this case, they are the Chrome Mini cards that can be found in packs of 2013 Bowman Baseball. As you can see in the pic below, it is marked as a "1 of 1". The fronts are super shiny with prismatic embellishments, and they are considered the cream of the crop when it comes to rookie cards.
Past Superfractors have sold for thousands of dollars. In May of 2010 the Stephen Stasburg 2010 Bowman Chrome Superfractor sold on eBay for $16,403. Then, that same Strasburg resold soon after at $21,403. The 2010 Bowman Team USA Bryce Harper Superfractor sold for $12,500 in 2010. The 2006 Bowman Chrome Superfractor of Clayton Kershaw showed up on eBay in 2012 at a "Buy It Now" price of $17,500, but does not appear to have sold.
There's no telling how high the Puig card can go, but based on the above sales it's clear it'll be in the 5 figures. How much higher is anybody's guess.
