A VCP issue?
I saved your rant for posterity as I was quoting you when you took it down. Most folks on this board knew the market was being manipulated with certain cards such as the Rose rookie. To think VCP could know what gets paid for and what doesn't, and try not to report those sales which didn't get paid for, seems crazy to me.

edited to add a few sales histories...I can't imagine spending 150k on a Rose in a 9 and then a month later have it selling for 30k? That is a huge, huge drop off...

Does seems like some more modern cards have quickly fallen off a high cliff. Of course, they are EXACTLY the cards informed board members have been saying for a long time were obscenely and irrationally overpriced.

Leon I think you copied the wrong link. The second sale was an SGC 9.

The pin (don't know if that's the right terminology) has been popped on the left side. Also, the right border has frosting. I'm not saying it's been cracked and/or re-sealed, just saying that might have scared away some bidders. Either way, I agree - the price has fallen.

It's really sad that this has become our reaction. It's really not a surprise anymore, is it?

Yea I would find this one very concerning if I had spent 150k a few weeks earlier on a similar card. Might be a good time to pick one up. If I had the available funds I'd be in the market for a psa 8 Clemente at current prices.
