Default No Hobby Love for Jordan Walden?

I know closers aren't as collected as other players but couldn't believe how low this sold:

09 BOWMAN STERLING JORDAN WALDEN GOLD REF RC #RD 29/50 | eBay

No kidding, someone got a great deal for that. People forget that Walden is around because of the hype with Kimbrell. But people will realize that this kid is only a rookie too and will be just as solid.

Closers are really hot and hes still young and not elite yet. Are any closers really "hot" in the hobby sans Rivera?

Even so, $1.04 for a gold refractor is reserved for nobodies.

No way will Walden ever be as solid as Kimbrel. (BTW: "Kimbrel", not Kimbrell) Walden has had 9 blown saves in 37 save opportunities. Kimbrel has had all the way to 47 save opportunities and blown only 5. Walden has pitched 52 innings and struck out 58 while Kimbrel has pitched "68.2" innings and struck out 113. His 2.60 ERA isn't comparable to Kimbrel's 1.57 ERA. Walden will simply never reach the status of Kimbrel in the future and people know that. Not nearly as solid. Kimbrel is just a rookie too, only 23 years old and there is no question he will become one of the futures best closers. Walden will probably end up being a decent closer for a sub .500 team. I don't see Walden as being one of the bests in the future.

Pretty cheap for a gold refractor. Seller does have bad feedback though.

But even then, there's one site that has a black refractor for $19.99 BIN so the value is not JUST because of this seller.

Okay, maybe not the best comparison, but I've seen Walden pitch too and he has some great stuff. No knock on Kimbrel, because that kid is awesome too. I think of all the young closers (Nunez, Santos to name a few), in my mind they aren't in the same conversation as Walden and Kimbrel.
