Card of the Day - 2014 Bowman Draft : John Richy Base Chrome Blue Refractor Parallel (177/399)

I didn't know who Jeff Brigham was in the 2014 Bowman Draft set but I really didn't know who John Richy is. At least Brigham had an autograph to chase for so that "forced" me to figure out who that guy was. Richy on the other hand just had base and non autograph cards, to chase after.

The one thing I come away with after this purchase was, damn look at that pornstache !!! John is rocking the facial hair on this card and I love it.

I didn't expect much demand for John's card as he is not a "name" in the Dodger organization and even with a $4 value attached to this card in Beckett I was looking to spend no more than a $1 or so. Took a few days to find an auction that was suitable for me as sellers were still trying to make an extra buck or too on this card. Found this one with a starting price of 99 pennies and at the end of the day I was the only one to bid on it so all I had to part with was some loose change.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.

  1. John Richy was one of the prospects sent to the Phillies in the Chase Utley deal.

    He projects to be anywhere from a middle reliever to a back of the rotation starter.
