Earlier this month, we told you about the rare Bryce Harper rookie baseball card that was up for auction.

The 2011 Bowman Chrome Superfractor rookie card sold Thursday night in PWCC's November Premier Auction - becoming Harper's highest-selling trading card of all time.

"Bryce Harper, in my opinion, is an extremely undervalued player," said Jesse Craig, Vice President of Sales at PWCC Marketplace. "He's been to seven All-Star games, won National League MVP twice, and just had a historic playoff run."

PWCC says the sale is nearly 10x more than Harper's previous record holder.

Would now be a good time to share our Action News Mornings Team trading cards again? They are priceless.
