I don't think Goudeys have the potential of going sky high simply because of the number of the available on the market. Even though they are still caramel I think that the 1920's american caramel and such will continue to rise as people I think are just now starting to really collect them. Even though this sounds strange I think the strip card market will rise as well - but I have nothing to back that up.

I would tell you, but then I would have to kill you.

Not sure too many people are going to divulge too much info here, because they are probably currently buying the stuff they think is "undervalued". I will venture to say that PSA/SGC 8-10 cards are NOT "undervalued", but that is just my opinion.

In the last Mastro auction, they had several lots of PSA 7s, 8s and other mixed grades. In general, they sold for about 40% over SMR (after including the buyer's fee). So it may be too late to get into Goudeys if you are looking to make a quick buck. Unfortunately for me, its too late.

Regional and food cards are significently under priced and over the last several years Krause(Lemkee) has shifted there prices UP UP!!!.. In many cases these cards are near impossible to find, for the simple fact they were attached to a food products or a give away at a minor league game durning the 1940's-60's.. For example, I am currently in the process of writing an article about Spokane Indians Darigold Farm cards attacked to milk cartons...I found out the volume of milk produced and found that there were only about 2400 cards made of each player ... Now,the number of That cards survived over 40+ years is probably several hundard at most. Tis is just one example of many regional food issues...

If you want to know more about regional food cards I have written an artice about regional food cards for SCD weekly magazine and it should be out any time in June. maybe today??

strip cards have already been making a strong a move. Used to be you could pick up a nice Ruth or Cobb for under $100. Those days are long gone. And Joe Jax under $200 in nice shape is nothing but a pipedream now. They will pretty much be like caramel cards with a snowball effect of slowing building up steam over 3-5 years then getting to the point where it is today. You won't see strip cards command the prices caramel cards do, but they will keep going up for the foreseeable future.

30s caramel cards was an area I used to pick up a lot baragins, but those have pretty much dried up too. There really aren't any segments that aren't scoured for good deals. Hell, even MP&Co cards pulling silly prices and those are the last cards I'd expect to start going up in price.

I like to sit outside drink beer and yell at people. If I did this at home I would be arrested, so I go to baseball games and fit right in.

I always thought there was no way that game cards could catch up with regular baseball cards--after all, they came in PACKS, not singly. But Fan Craze are getting very expensive, and I have never actually held a WG1 in my hands...
Generic cards, although they get a little more expensive every year, SHOULDN'T ever catch up, because they aren't of particluar players...but who'll rush out and buy one?


(E and R Williams game card, 1889, Anson and Ewing; Fan Craze Waddell and Plank; 1884 Lawson's catcher; 1936 (Americam Game?) Waner).

Oh, I just did (R and S Chicago, 1889).

Seriously, off the subject of game cards and generics, does the original poster in this thread think Old Judges, Mayos, Goodwin Champions, Peck and Snyders, Jos. Halls, Just Sos, etc--are CHEAP?

I've always thought the Tom Barker and National Game cards were a great buy and look great.

BCD, you had better sell me yours before it is worthless. This is one time I will buy the holder and not the overgraded card!
