Default "Young Guns" McDavid rookie

Why are these so expensive? PSA 10s seem to sell around $400. I get that he is an amazing young player, but there are over 1400 (!!!!) PSA 10s, including a remarkable 50 on ebay right now, and probably a huge number of Beckett 9.5s as well. Maybe the glut on ebay will result in lower prices?

I'm kinda with you, so... Maybe because there are more than 1400 McDavid and Oilers fans willing to spend that money. I play hockey with a guy who is not a card collector at all (but a huge Oilers fan), and he ended up buying a few boxes of UD. He picks up a few of them, then asks me what to do with them. I said "Get 'em graded.", so he does. He couldn't spell "PSA" before, had no idea of the grading game.

Now he has a 10 and two 9's, and they are in a frame with a jersey, hanging in his basement.

There are 581 Crosbys in PSA 10, so obviously they printed a ton more McDavids. PWCC has 8 ending on the same night, it's crazy.

About a year ago, there was some discussion on another forum (not sure if it's OK to say which one on here) about black label McDavid YG. At that time, they were POP 9. Sales got into the 15-18k range.

Now it's POP 29 (and recent sales show a sharp decline from the max).

That same discussion mentioned in March 2017 that the BGS pop report showed 311 BGS 10 and 3512 BGS 9.5. Current pop report on shows 461 BGS 10 and 5614 BGS 9.5 (granted these are probably inflated some due to re-grade attempt to bump).

PSA 10 from March 2017 had a POP 686. Now it's 1426.

I'd be wary of buying any high grade McDavid YG at the current price.

While I'm sure they printed more I'd bet some of it could be attributed to the increase in awareness of 3rd party graders. A whole lot of McDavids went straight from pack to card saver and then to a TPG.

There were auctions at one point over a year ago where there were lots of 10 for sale on PWCC. I personally sold all the YGs and FWAs I had pulled after his Hart. Dumb? Perhaps, but I'm betting on a slump / injury (ala Sid) in the middle of his career where buying opportunities may emerge should I want to buy one for the PC.

Resurrecting the thread because I found it intriguing. To put things in perspective, there are already significantly more graded Gem Mint McDavid YGs than 1990 OPC Premier Jagr rookies (BGS+PSA). McDavid is an extraordinary talent, but he may never get close to Jagr's accomplishments. $80 vs. $400. Seems like an easy decision for me.

I don't know with a 100% certainty, but I'd bet the Jagr rookie numbers are in the thousands.
I pulled this one straight from a pack and put it in its current holder back when the collecting/junk wax craze was rampant and I know many others did as well.

Not saying there isn't a ton of McDavid rc's available, but, imo, there likely is Jagr's as well, if not more?
Currently PWCC has 5 Jagr 10's up for auction (that I seen) and depending on the prices realized, there will be a whole lot more coming out soon, imo.

But, like you, I also don't get the current prices of current players when so many proven, HOF's cards exist that can be had for less money, but I guess it boils down to who's popular and who isn't?

At one point PWCC had close to 10 McDavid's I think, haven't checked since but I suspect there is a constant large supply.

There are currently 8 Young Guns with a 3 other cards also classified as Young guns, (like this one below) that I am not familiar with.

This is the most expensive one as it's a Pristine copy.

Looks like it will finish over a $1000, imo.
