Think about this for a minute. Your son is a couple of years into college and his car breaks down. He goes into a dealership and finds an excellent deal on a very reliable, environmental-friendly Toyota but he needs $3,000 as a down payment. He asks you if you could loan him the cash and you tell him you’d love to but you just bought a Dellin Betances 1/1 Bowman Chrome SuperFractor on eBay so he should think about getting himself a bus pass.

Okay, this card really is special. It is a SuperFractor, the hottest card in the hobby right now and it has been graded as a 10-Pristine which means it is perfect and will never be anything less than perfect. Basically, what that means is that if Dellin turns out to be a flop prospect who goes on to win 40 games in 10 years in the big leagues, the card is STILL his rarest, most wanted rookie card and could generate a nice profit for anyone foolish enough to pay.

Looking at Dellin’s numbers doesn’t say much. In 13 games in the minors he is 1-3 with a 2.43 ERA. What scares me is that he is just 19, signed with the Yankees, and is 6 feet 8 inches. This is about as much a “can’t miss” prospect as there has ever been. Man, after doing some research I think I am ready to make my own bid!
