Imo, there are reasons why some are leaving other auction houses and gravitating towards GM cards, and shipping fees are just one of them.

With all my raw 52's, if I was ever thinking of consigning with someone, GM most likely would be the place.
The main thing I don't enjoy from GM is the 10% CA sales tax. It's a beating on a big ticket item.

Thanks in advance.

I've noticed this crazy phenomenon lately too. I saw the Robinson card when it sold. On 1/6/19 GMC sold a NM, raw copy of a 1971 Willie Davis, high number common, for $237.06. I don't believe there is anything particularly rare about this card.

Ending tonight, GMC has a VG-VG/EX copy of the 1970 Nolan Ryan that is currently at $102.50. You can buy already graded PSA 5 copies of that card for about that price.

It's all about eye appeal which guides the final price. A nicely centered EX card may fetch more than an off-center Nrmt card.

Yeah, it's nuts. Pure speculation is to blame. Someone sees an ungraded card on ebay and thinks, "If that would grade a 9..." If you want a raw set, it is cheaper to buy them graded and crack them out than it is to try and buy raw these days..at least for high grade sets. Also, it seems no one wants graded commons these days anyway.

I agree. I recently bid on 75, trying not to go over psa 8 prices, and only won 6 cards.

I don't have 100% confidence but probably 90%. I agree that you have to look closely for print defects, and dinged corners. OC is readily apparent.

PWCC has gotten almost entirely out of the raw game. We all have different opinions, but I think it's pretty hard to argue that eBay isn't king when it comes to the overall hobby's preference for acquisition. It was only a matter of time before someone reputable stepped in to fill the raw niche. Whether it's raw collecors or treasure hunters looking for tpg gold, I have no idea....but likely a mix as has been mentioned. My point being that, as much as possible, taming the wild west of raw cards on eBay is a ripe opportunity for the right seller with the right reputation and marketing.

A year and a half ago I was trying to complete a 1972 Topps set. I gave up online and picked them up at shows. The two I could not land were the Murcer- which I was losing at $30+ and the Tim Foli IA which I would quit at $20. Im not sure what was going on at the time but those two were going for crazy money. I think I picked up both at a show under $20.
