Freddie Freeman 2007 Bowman Chrome Draft #BDPP12
In 2010, all of the baseball world was watching the Atlanta Braves spring training season because of some young kid named Jason Heyward. Not much has changed a year later.
Now, in 2011, the baseball world is setting their eyes on the Atlanta Braves once again. Why? Because of their potentially big star Freddie freeman. The Braves future first baseman is tearing it up in the 2011 spring traning. Through eight games, Freddie Freeman has gone 11 for 24 and is batting .458 with three doubles, two walks and four RBI.
I had never seen this kid play until last week. ESPN was showing the Braves-Tigers game on TV and I got a chance to watch it. What I didn’t realize was just how big Freddie Freeman is. At just 21 years old, this “kid” is built like a man already. Freeman stands 6’5″ tall and weighs in at 220 pounds. Makes a great target for the Braves infielders and he is a perfect build for the
first base position.
And just like Heyward last year, baseball collectors everywhere are scurrying over to eBay to pick up Freddie Freeman rookie cards. And just like Jason Heyward last year, collectors are also finding Freeman’s rookie cards in the 2007 Bowman Chrome Draft set and it is starting to heat up.
As I type this post, the Freddie Freeman 2007 Bowman Chrome Draft rookie card #BDPP12 currently has 123 auctions running on eBay at the moment. The completed listings for the ’07 Freeman rookie also yielded some impressive prices. For example, a Freddie Freeman 2007 Bowman Draft Xfractor numbered to 299 just recently sold for $51.00 on 3-6-11. A regular Freddie Freeman refractor sold for $17.50. And finally, a 2007 Bowman Draft Blue refractor numbered to 199 just sold for $59.00 on 3-7-11.
It will be interesting to look back at these current prices on the Freddie Freeman 2007 Bowman Draft rookie cards in the months to come. This kid looks like he will be breaking camp and heading to Atlanta with the big club at the end of spring training. Of course, only time will tell how well of a season this young guy will have. We could all look back at these prices mentioned above and wish we would have gotten in early! For a more complete list of hot rookie cards to add to your collection, please visit our website here.
