Fans of the Baltimore Orioles have high hopes for Manny Machado, the teams #3 overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft. Several high end cards from the 2010 Bowman set that featured Machado in a Team USA uniform have sold at auction. Collectors get their first crack at a card with the Orioles logo thanks to the 2010 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospect set that was recently released. This Red Refractor autograph, serial numbered #3/5, is currently the most watched Baseball Card on eBay.
Some scouts have compared Machado to Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez. Manny was drafted out of High School, so even if he tears up the minor leagues it will be several years before he puts on a MLB Orioles uniform. We've tracked the price of two other high end Machado cards that hit auction earlier this year. The current Bowman DPP at auction features an autograph and the serial number is also the pick number that the Orioles selected him in the 2010 Draft.
