What does the future hold for the Bryce Harper SuperFractor? by Chris Olds

The Stephen Strasburg SuperFractor from 2010 Bowman seems to be getting all of the attention these days — and rightly so when it has generated sales of $16,400 and $25,000 — but there’s one other SuperFractor in the product that could give it a run for its prospecting money.

That’s the Bryce Harper card.

While Strasburg is the talk of the town in Washington, D.C., the 17-year-old Harper is the player who might be doing the same in a year or two.

And his SuperFractor was found by Ernest Clinton, a long-time collector from Hopewell Junction, N.Y.

He recently received replacement cards for a different SuperFractor redemption, a move he wasn’t happy about. So he turned to some Bowman boxes and ripped away. Finding the Harper, of course, made that misery subside.

“I was like i cant believe it and it made my day,” he said. “That’s the reason why I opened the boxes of 2010 Bowman. I was going to sell the packs at a local flea market.”

While he’s already had offers between $4,000 and $5,000, Clinton said he is considering selling the card on eBay — that’s a trendy thing these days considering SuperFractors seem to be getting plenty of attention these days.

And it’s not just SuperFractors selling well, either. A Red Refractor of Harper’s card (five copies exist) graded a BGS 10 recently sold for $13,000 on eBay.
