I just got the email from Topps that I can now request a replacement for my 2010 Luke Hughes Chrome autographed base card. Hughes’ first autographs were in Bowman way back in 2004. His minor league numbers don’t look that impressive and it has taken him this long to reach the majors. He had a hot spring, but maybe that will bump up the book value of the card so that I can end up with a better replacement. Anyone out there have a recent Beckett and if you do could you check the “value” for me. It’s card 187.
Right now, I’m leaning towards requesting a Red Sox replacement. If I were to get this Hughes card, I’d most likely end up trading it anyway. Might as well get something that I’ll keep in my collection. Let’s see how Topps does in selecting replacement cards compared to Upper Deck.
