Default Who bought all the T206 rare backs on eBay??

Anyone notice that in a matter of 2-3 days all of the broafleafs, Carolina brights, graded Lenox etc have been purchased on eBay? Someone trying to corner the market on graded rare-back commons?

Default Which auction?

maybe you can reference which ebay auctions? Unless there is a 1 of 1 , or something unique about it , I'm unsure why anyone would bother with the inflated ebay prices that abound. No offence to anyones auctions , but a Lenox Tinker isnt worth a b.i.n. of $3500 , and too me , in general, theres no need to rush into purchases based on back rarity hype.

Same buyer on many of the cards. Thanks for pointing this phenomenon out.

For those who don't know, you can find out accepted best offer prices at:

Does it really matter? David Hall has put a significant hit on the back market due to his absence....The cards being talked about recently on Ebay might total what 10-15? Hall has thousands....

+1....And with David Hall out of the picture, T206 backs have come back down to Earth somewhat....

Thank Scot, I figured most were purchased by same buyer. Just seems odd that someone decided to take down in a single shot all the rarer back commons, especially considering they had been sitting out there on eBay for months.

Kevin, I notice that a new generation of David Halls may be out there. As you know, I am a fairly recent buyer of rare backs, and higher end HOF if that. And recently I was outbid on both cy young bare hand OM 6 and a red Cobb CB (with bad paper loss on back), and I had some mighty bids in. Add this random rare back, common grab, and prices realized this spring on other rare backs (see Cobb AB on eBay a month ago), and it seems rare backs may be back and rising.

I don't know Kevin.

These are very interesting sales data points to me -- and all in the last week.

$4400 Broad Leaf 350 PSA 4
$4350 Broad Leaf 350 PSA 3.5
$4200 Black Lenox PSA 4
$2900 Broad Leaf 350 PSA 3
$2875 Carolina Brights SGC 5.5
$2250 Black Lenox SGC 3
$1700 Broad Leaf 350 PSA 2 MK
$1450 Red Hindu SGC 3

How can you be so sure this is not a new master set collector?

Mr. Hall started out this way.

Default Cobb

yes, there was a Cobb CB that went for over 5.8K in early March. I dont feel its worth that, It was low grade. what I saw from the bid history was 2-3 determined bidders have a good go at it. spread from the guy who mantled over it was 4k+ , and the other guy was determined to see where the max was,,, ebay 401284760584

They didn't grab the Brown Old Mill of Ross Helm for $33K yet. (BTW - I find it funny that you'd still have to add the $2.67 shipping on that one)
