eBay Price Check:2009 Donruss Elite EEE Aroldis Chapman Auto #/695
Time Frame: March 15, 2010
Average Online Price: $61.00 (3 Total Auctions)
Aroldis Chapman recently signed with the Cincinnati Reds. Who knows how fast he will make it through their system but the hype is already behind this Cuban defector. This is his first certified Autograph RC card. Aroldis Chapman already has some Base (Non-Auto) Rookie cards on the market, and you can find a complete list by checking out our RC Checklist for Aroldis Chapman.
This prediction is for the base version #/695. I think after about 2 months the excitement behind this card might cool. Other companies may include him in a set or simpy collectors will be on to the current prospect playing well in the MLB. This one could go either way! If he is tearing up the Minor Leagues and speeds up to the Majors (which is possible) then the value would go up quite a bit. But I get a feeling that he might need some seasoning in the Minors before getting a call-up to the bigs. Therefore, I see a small drop in price. I don’t see much competition, but I see other prospects taking the stage come Mid March.
