2014 Bowman Inception Gregory Polanco/Alen Hanson Dual Patch Auto /15
This card has been tempting me since it was released several months back. I've seen a handful on eBay and the prices have been high. Thankfully a few weeks back one went off at a much more reasonable price and I won the auction. The two nice patches make the card.
Gregory Polanco cards have seen a pretty big dip in price the last two months. In reality they could really only go down. After his debut in June his cards were so expensive I wouldn't even track them. He was pretty much in the realm of Cubs prospect Kris Bryant and Astros George Springer at the time. By the time August came around Polanco's bat cooled and he lost most of his playing time to Travis Snider. He spent a good two months off the radar. As a result card prices came down to a more manageable amount. I've picked up 4 or 5 different releases in that time.
Alen Hanson is a highly regarded middle infield prospect currently at AA Altoona. Hanson is still only 21 years old so the skill set is pretty raw. Errors have been an issue so most seem to think a move to second base may be in order as he advances in the system. Either way it looks like the bat is progressing well. The Pirates minor league system is loaded with top notch talent.
