It shouldn’t be a surprise that he’ll be included, but it should be a surprise when you pull him.
Topps announced on Monday that Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda will have autographed Rookie Cards in 2016 Bowman Chrome when it arrives on Sept. 7.
It’s a redemption, but it will still sell well.
The 2016 Bowman Chrome Kenta Maeda Superfractor auto has been pulled from a pack of 2016 Bowman and made its way to eBay on Sunday.
It’s listed by eBay user tcbuilt28 in Seattle, Wash., with a Buy It Now price of $14,999 — along with a $2.75 shipping fee. (Update: It reportedly sold for $7,000.)
The headlines after Kenta Maeda‘s fourth MLB start speak of superlatives — all-time superlatives — and that bodes well for his cardboard.
In part due to good timing.
