Default Prices Boom again this spring?

The crazy price boom that happened last spring - will it continue to boom even more this spring? ( rhetorical question I know). But really, will those Koufax RC's, Ryan & Reggie RC's, etc. go absolute bonkers, or will prices stay mildly settled now a year removed from the big boom?

PWCC has few very nice T206's closing tonite (a PSA 6 Cobb bat off just closed $7,500.) Do you think we will see a continued steady uptick in quality prewar? And speaking of PWCC, what seller in their right mind would NOT send their stuff to PWCC? They sure seem to get the best prices hands down. Remeber we all had jaw on floor couple years ago when a PSA 5 Cobb green went for, like, $18,500. ish? What if PWCC put up that card now? Whew!

Yes, it happens every spring, just like the arrival of the Easter bunny.

I believe PWCC gets lower prices that the major auction houses. That's the only reason I occasionally buy from them. And they charge their sellers a premium that the real AHs will typically waive on higher ticket items.

Default spring is good

Yup, every spring prices get quite healthy. But last year could have been a near once in a lifetime historical all-time crazy price jump for high end post war HOF Rookies.

Huh, I believe the exact opposite. I believe their was a thread here earlier that showed PWCC is about half the commissions of the AH's. The cards I bid on with them almost always go for a healthy price.

Some of my friends believe in PWCC---I prefer to sell my own stuff--but as to PWCC---I like buying there as there is no Juice added on---I bought 2 low grade Green Cobbs last night and was pleased with my buy price especially on a tough card to find right now----I don't know if the 50's Rookies are taking off again, but I know the Green Cobb is escalating.

Card sells for $125K at an auctionhouse: seller gets $100K after the 20% buyers commission.

Card sells for $120K at PWCC: seller gets $111K after 8% commission.

I also like PWCC (for buying). I bid on several last night and was fortunate to win five. I thought that I placed high bids on the ones that I lost but I guess someone had more $$ to spend than I.

I can't think of any auction house that would charge anything resembling 20% on a six figure card. In all likelihood it would be 0% possibly even pay the seller 105% of hammer price.
