The biggest hit out of 2019 Bowman baseball has been pulled from a shop in Amarillo, TX.
Owner Steve Bybee of S&S Sportscards says one of his best customers landed the Wander Franco autographed SuperFractor numbered 1/1 a couple of days ago.
There’s no word yet on what the owner is planning to do with the card, which would likely fetch a strong five or possible six-figure price tag based on the results of other high-end prospect SuperFractors.
The unautographed version featuring the Tampa Bay Rays infield prospect was pulled last week.
At 18, Franco is by far the youngest player in the Midwest League, but has gotten off to a sizzling start and was just named the league’s Player of the Week.
The second of 20 Graig Kreindler paintings being turned into baseball cards was released Tuesday when Topps unveiled the Lou Gehrig card that’s part of its 150th Anniversary of Baseball series.
Kreindler’s newest work will add to the checklist every two weeks. He’s slated to paint 20 cards exclusively for Topps. The original artwork will be sold at a later date.
