Potential Bargain Alert: Lucas Giolito 2013 Bowman Chrome Prospect REFRACTOR autograph rookie

EDITOR’S NOTE: The card below sold for $35. Great deal!

The Chicago White Sox prospect Lucas Giolito, who was once considered a top 3 MLB prospect coming up in the Washington Nationals farm system, has seen his stock plummet over the last season.

His inconsistency is most likely to blame. Still, he’s a young pitcher and the organization as well as some sports writers, believe in his talent. Depending on how you feel and your risk tolerance, this could be a buy-low opportunity.

CARD: 2013 Bowman Chrome Prospect REFRACTOR autographed card (numbered to 500) BGS Graded 9.5/10

CURRENT BID PRICE: $35 (as of 11:47 a.m. EST with about 11 hours left in the auction)

SUGGESTED MAX PRICE: $50 (The refractor card was sold on June 6 for $79.99. But on May 7, it was sold for $43.10. That latter value seemed to be a case of being at the right place at the right time. But it’s still a good gauge in regards to how low one can go for this card. There is also a Buy It Now price of $84.99.)

AUCTION ENDS: July 28, 2017 at 11:03 p.m. EST.

BONUS: Here’s the card with a later auction end time (Sunday, July 30 at 5:22 p.m.) still under the $50 max bid suggestion at the time this post was published.
