This is the fifth article in a series of articles highlighting the top 10 baseball prospects on our nooffseason.com baseball rankings list. I am going to break down specific plays for each player to take all the guess work out of it for our premium members. All you will have to do is find the cards listed in these articles, buy them, grade them, and flip them for profit! Coby Mayo is our number 5 ranked prospect. Here are some options for you to buy and flip! You have about 5 months to get your cards ready for spring training. The prices may change a bit over the next several months, but regardless of what the numbers change to, there will still be money making opportunities on these cards!
Without having a non-auto Bowman 1st to buy and grade in bulk, we are left with smaller bulk plays of his autographed cards. Please notice that the PSA 10 cards are typically 3x-4x what raw is. When I look at his base auto that ratio is off by a decent margin. So, either the Raw cards should be selling for around $70, or the PSA 10's should be selling for around $275. Each of these plays leaves you a decent profit margin but buying his base autos in PSA 10 condition is also a valid play. I think that the raw is the right number and the PSA 10's are a bit low and will self-correct by spring. If I am right there could be $50-$100 profit margins in each PSA 10. As always, good luck and let us know how you did!
