Follow-Up: Micah Owings
Well, the D-Backs' Micah Owings did hit another HR tonight, but his pitching wasn't so hot. He allowed 3 ER off of 7 hits, with only 2 K's in 6 innings pitched. This loss dropped his record to 6-7 for the season. Right after I reported that his 05 Topps Chrome Update Auto Ref #'d 500 dropped in TAC price to around $10, one sold tonight for $22.02. I guess his cards are still quite new to getting hobby attention, so we can probably expect his card sales to have a wide range of TAC values until collectors' perceptions of him become more solidified. He is definitely a high risk investment. Personally, I would rather spend $20 on a 03 Bowman's Best Dan Haren Auto RC or 04 Bowman Sterling Scott Kazmir Auto/Jsy RC; both of which have been selling for around that range recently.
