Default High prices lately for 52's. Am I missing something?

Been noticing lately a huge increase in some 52 prices that I haven't seen before.
Some cards are still reasonable, or in the price I am familiar with, but some have me scratching my head lately?

This one just sold. (These are nice cards but I haven't seen prices like this before for raw/ungraded)

I guess you need to be logged in, Ted?

FYI.

Parnell: $162.28
Wilson: $100.00
Hansen: $46.76
Elliot: $77.00
Hogue: $256.00
Maxwell: $201.50

I put bids in on quite a few of these cards, plus many more. I didn't expect to win them all, obviously, but I would have bet I was going to win at least a couple. Needless to say, I was blown away when I woke up and seen what they sold for!

Irv, on all but the first card, it was the same two bidders bidding on items from the same seller in what appears to be a bidding war. However, both sellers have 50% or more of their bids with this seller. FWIW, I have won items from this seller at reasonable amounts, so despite the high pct of bids with this seller, IMO it is a bidding war between the two bidders.

The graded 52s I have won in the past month have all been at reasonable/in-line with previous sale prices.

This appears to be a one off.

They were only 1 and 2 on 3 of the cards but likely had some influence on the bidder of the 4th one so you are likely right, SFMS, but it's still surprising to see what those others went for.

I guess time will tell soon enough if this was an anomaly or not?

Sounds silly but it could be that people are getting back tax returns. Money to burn means I got a little extra jingle in my pocket and this time, I'M winning the card.

This could also just be my inner monologue...

That's a good thought as anything is possible I suppose?

I did note this increase earlier in another thread about Greg Morris cards and the prices realized, but supposedly GM cards are pretty nice and graded by him pretty accurately. Needless to say, I didn't win any of those ones either!

I've won a lot of Greg Morris auctions over the last 6 months for 1958 Topps, 1948 Bowman, and 1974-75 OPC WHA. I've got a lot for really good prices, overpaid for others that I really wanted, and have lost out on some where the prices were shockingly high. It does seem like prices are going up a bit in general but there's something to the fact that this is a seller I know I can trust and who will ship to Canada for very reasonable prices.

Surprisingly often, a card will simply get caught up in a competition between two people who really want it. I was recently in on a 1974-75 OPC WHA card in NR-Mint that was worth about $3.00. I was quite interested in obtaining it, though, so put in a $10 snipe. To my great surprise, I lost out and it went for over $13. Other instances of that card have gone for under $3 in the same grade. So, it can just be a random thing.

The Hogue at $256 was stunning, given all the ink schmack.
