Only $29.99 for a 20-letter long name of a player, not bad.

It will be available the usual time, Thursday at 3PM EST.

And etopps is allowing a maximum of 3 per account. They know better.

Last year for a brief time "Salty" was hyped on the Braves even though McCann was and still is their catcher. The Braves proved this in the off-season by trading him. Like Josh Hamilton, you're getting his card from last year's team.

Looking at how his autograph has sold, it looks like the best one is from 2003 Upper Deck Prospect Premieres Sticker Auto. One that was BGS 9.5 with the auto getting a 10 sold for $52 recently.

Don't get me wrong that if you tried flipping this auto, it will most likely sell if you have it as an auction but if you ask too high at a fixed price without best offer, you may be wasting money with the listing fee.

This is definitely a hold if Salty can have a good year and sell into September. Otherwise, don't expect much in return except for the eager etopps auto collectors (who like long last-named players).
