Matt Laporta is a hot prospect at the moment, there is no doubt about that. What is a surprise though is what his second-year ’08 Bowman Autograph just sold for. His first-year autographs don’t come close to that price! What gives?

I am not exactly going out on a limb by saying that people are extremely itchy to get their hands on ’08 Bowman Chrome, thanks to a beautiful design and respectable checklist. Unfortunately for collectors, the two chrome cards per pack will be as good as it gets for a couple of months. Still, you know this card will not sell for that much ever again until Matt does something significant in the big leagues, if that day ever comes. In a couple of months the winning bidder is going to have some serious buyer’s remorse.

Now, If you want to see a real beauty worth thousands, check out this Superfractor. You will probably not see it again, at least not for a few years.
