The Frank Thomas 2021 Topps Allen and Ginter Chrome Autographs Superfractor has moved around a lot over the past two months. On July 16, 2022, it sold at a BIN price of $599. Superfractors are pumped out by the piles every year so I see them all the time. I love them but at $599, I think it’s a little high for a post-career Frank Thomas. I met the buyer at a local show shortly after this sale and congratulated him.
When I saw the listing a couple days before it sold, I thought it might bring about $450 at auction. The card was relisted auction style via COMC’s eBay account and it closed on September 9, 2022 with 26 bids at $423.10, which is pretty close to my initial valuation.
Almost immediately after the September sale, it was re-listed BIN via COMC’s eBay account for $1199.99, which is laughable. I saw the listing on eBay but was unsuccessful in my attempts to recover it. After doing some research, it appears that if an item sells direct via COMC, the eBay listing disappears. That said, here’s the direct COMC listing. Apparently, someone thought the card was worth nearly 3x the actual current market value.
