Yasiel Puig Will be the Topps 2013 Bowman Lucky Redemption #4, and They are Already Selling for Huge Dollars

Not only is Yasiel Puig making a splash throughout the Baseball world, he is causing a tidal wave in the collecting world.  Topps announced a couple of days ago that Puig will be their 2013 Bowman Lucky Redemption #4, and as a result of his phenomeal debut this card is selling for big bucks.  Like, REALLY BIG BUCKS.

As you may know, Topps released a group of 5 different redemption cards that can be turned in for a bonus autographed card of a hot rookie.  So far, (including Puig) 4 players have been announced.  They are:
  • #1 Hyun-Jin Ryu - L.A. Dodgers
  • #2 Jurickson Profar - Rangers
  • #3 Kevin Gausman - Orioles
  • #4 Yasiel Puig - Dodgers
Check out what the Ryu card looks like from my previous post from early May here.  Unfortunately, an early peek of the Puig card is not available, but according to their tweet it will use a "Blue Sapphire" design.

As of this posting, since the Topps announcement 3 days ago only two cards have closed on eBay at a "Buy It Now" price that can be deciphered.  They sold for $405.00 and an astounding $700.00.  Five other cards also closed at "Buy It Now" values after the announcement, but were sold using the best offer option.  So, we don't know those exact values.  We can determine, though that the range is likely somewhere between $399.99 to $799.99.

As for currently live auctions, there are 5 auctions running between $360.00 to $563.00. 

That's a lot of change, wouldn't you say?

Below is an example of what the redemption card for the Yasiel Puig card looks like.
