Jeff Francoeur 2002 Bowman Chrome Draft #23 Rookie Card
This card was selling for $40-$50 a piece for the BASE card after he appeared on the cover of SI and they called him the next Mickey Mantle. He is still young and could still play for many more seasons but he is nowhere near being the next Mickey Mantle and the card books for only $6 now.

How about the ole 2007 Topps Jeter error card with Mantle and Bush? That was going for like 70 bucks when it first was found on ebay. Now, it's like 5 bucks.Trade Bait: Hidden Content
Looking for Red Sox vintage, Yastrzemski, Koufax, and other HOF vintage
eBay takes about 10% in commissions. By selling on SCF, you save 10%. I expect that saving to be passed on to me or other members. If something goes for 100 bucks on eBay, it should go for about 85-90 here.

His Fleer Update card was a $40-$50 card and the Leaf Rookies & Stars short print was $100-$150 a card. He was hyped to be a Mickey Mantle type player as well.

Dontrelle Willis Rookies
He had various rookies in 2002 products that were super hot after starting at nothing but after his 2005 season they have steadily declined back down to basically nothing. Still amazing that currently him and Brandon Webb are both out of baseball when they were two of the best young pitchers in baseball in the National League for awhile.

How about Joba Chamberlain?
His 2007 Bowman Chrome autograph was selling for over $100 after he got called up. Just saw one completed on eBay for $10.

It's amazing how few players cards actually reach the prices their hype level command. In 2007 Chrome, it was Lincecum and Joba. Joba's prices are gone and despite 2 Cy Youngs, Lincecum's prices are the same as they were before he played a single MLB game.Check out my FT/FS Hidden Content . I'm always looking for a trade!
