The Kris Bryant 2014 Bowman autographed Superfractor redemption card that was pulled from a pack recently and placed up for sale on eBay has been sold according to the owner, Hawthorne Collectibles.
The card had been listed for $24,999.99 but the auction was ended May 13 and the card was then sold to a private collector offline. The actual selling price wasn't disclosed. According to Hawthorne, the buyer will be flying to Texas, where they are based, and picking up the card in person.
Bryant, a Cubs minor leaguer, is one of the more promising prospects in Bowman and the 1/1 Superfractor is one of the two biggest hits in the product. The card was not signed in time for Topps to get it into Bowman packs as a live hit.
The 1/1 Jose Abreu Superfractor auto was sold recently to Pastime Card Company. Collectors will have a chance to pull the card, which has an estimated value of $16,000, when it is inserted into the company’s ‘Bases Loaded’ repack product.
Pastime acquired the Superfractor Autograph from a collector in Florida who pulled the card a day after 2014 Bowman Baseball released late last month.
“We are extremely excited to give collectors a second chance at this amazing card,” said Pastime Card Company President, Mark Bowden. “Pastime is committed to offering more value on a per-box basis than any other repackage product on the market. With 2014 Pastime Bases Loaded’s limited print run, collectors will have a much easier opportunity of finding the year’s top card.”
Releasing in July, each box guarantees two total rookies or autographs. Boxes also have one of the following: another rookie or autograph, a one-of-one Pastime Portrait Art card, a redemption for a piece of memorabilia or a Pastime 1-Year Anniversary card. Those who collect ten 1-Year Anniversary cards can redeem them for an autographed jersey of a Hall of Famer.
2014 Pastime Bases Loaded is limited to 850 boxes (85 ten-box cases).
