One of the hallmarks of mania is the rising incidence and complexity of fraud. (The big short)

I've been following the 49 Leaf Jackie's pretty closely the past year in grades 4 to 6. I've been the underbidder many times until I finally got one- the SGC 70 in the last REA Auction- and I can assure you prices for that card have been strong every time. In fact, the PSA 6 in Heritage that closed a few days ago sold for 16.8 K with the juice. That is astonishingly high.

Likewise I am stunned at the prices for T206 HOFers in almost every grade. I only got back in the market this past year after years of being inactive, and my jaw drops pretty regularly. Green Cobbs, Young portraits, among others are just nuts.

Market seems awfully deep and very strong for most cards. Sure, some of these 100-200K cards are overpriced and will see a dip. Take one or two bidders out of the mix, after they win one, and the market will be affected for sure.

The Jackie 6 that sold for Heritage was about 250% higher than one sold in Match. I'll be interested to keep my eye on that one. Could have bought three of them for that prices in December. Odd.

It had incredible eye appeal and great centering. That might explain it.

Nothing posted on the internet is "confidential"

Can we at least agree that the market is not flattening "definitely"? Is that ok to say?

IDK about a dip, I mean I am the member that started the other thread about all the money in the hobby.

I cannot really comment on these modern post ww1 cards, but tons of stuff from pre-1915 are continually seeing record prices and have for awhile. t206 green Cobbs have gone insane, absolutely insane and they are everywhere. CJ stars have steadily risen while Jackson, Cobb and Matty go thru the roof.

Didn't REA set a record for a sports card auction in regard to gross revenue this Spring?

in the past month or so REA, Heritage, Memory Lane and Goldin have generated about $30 million in sales. I guess it would have been 50 mil if the market wasn't definitely flat.

PSA 7 Ruth sold for $552,000 and 1907 Seamless Steel Tubes Ty Cobb with Cobb writing content for $84,000 as the last Heritage auction. Seamless Cobb in Good 2 went for $24,000 in the last REA auction. Autographed 1907 Dietsche Fielding Pose Cobb--$26,000. Non-autographed Fielding Pose just under $11,000 at auction in 2015 in PSA 5, up from the $4,000 I paid for one in the very same grade in 2011. I'd say rare and significant items (condition rarity for the Ruth) are doing quite well.

Regards,

Larry
