Some interesting results the last few days.

N150 Sullivan SGC 50 $688.00: This was a really nice card. I remember when these routinely went over $1K. I had a feeling this one would be around this level; there've been a few sales of lesser cards in the sub-$500 range in the last year or so.

Romeo y Julieta Sullivan-Kilrain SGC 30 $163.49: the 'fat old men' card really ate it. I am afraid that RyJ, while one of my favorite issues, falls into that too obscure for its own good category.

1960 Hemmets uncut sheet/set raw, $314: after that finish on the LOTG version I had to wonder where this item really is. You could see the crease in Ali's head in this one, so the item is definitely a g-vg one. In that regard $314 is a decent price.

1964 Heinz VEB Eggs boxing PSA 7 $32.08: Ouch! This card had been touted by some as a candidate for first Ali card because it purportedly shows Ali. PSA even ran an article that touted it. I never thought the card actually showed Ali; he was just referenced on the back write-up for the set's Aussie audience because he fought an Aussie in the semis in 1960. The guys on the card are shirtless; the Olympians wore shirts in 1960, including Clay in the match that is referenced. Not him, sorry.

What're your thoughts on these and any other recent sales?

My thoughts are that I had a snipe on the PSA 10 Mayweather rookie $50 higher than the last one went and, naturally, lost.

My main thoughts:

1. Boxing is as thin a market as I can ever remember. Collectors will pony up for a needed issue, but then ignore the dupe that may come along it seems.
2. Speculation is nearly non-existant. It's manifested in the fact that dealers have little confidence in being able to move a nice card, and therefore are ignoring them at historically low levels - 12-15 years.

Now, being an avowed member of the buy high, sell low club, I picked up the N150 and the Hemmets set. The N150 because its a beautiful N150 Sullivan and the Hemmets set for shits and giggles - plus the LOTG sale made it worth a flyer. Couldn't lose at $314, could I?

I'll stash the Sullivan and try to move the Clay.

My two cents.

I collect Sullivan so I would have tried to pick it up if I had seen it. Which pose was it?

Turns out the Romeo y Julieta was Andy Baran's card:

I think the Sullivan was too?

I feel like there must be some t226 collectors out there working on sets. Red Suns seem to be creeping back up, bit by bit.
