I consigned the Dihigo, it was the only time I think I ever bought an item just to sell it. While I did make a decent profit, I was surprised how low it went compared to past Dihigo sales. Perhaps you knew something that other bidders did as well.

Jason,

Do you mind commenting on the Goudey commons? What are your thoughts on
prices with them? According to the PSA/DNA population report many signed commons only have a pop. of 1-2 cards. Some of those commons are extremely tough. A lot of those players died many years ago, which makes them almost if not impossible.

The Hal Newhouser Leaf I paid $1,800 for and it sold for over $25K. There were several others where I made 3 to 10 times what I paid. The Ruth 181 more than doubled the previous record for highest signed baseball card.

A lot of people have asked, and I'm not done collecting by any means. I actually bought a very nice signed Babe Ruth baseball for a good price last night. I also kept my Jim Thorpe signed 33 Goudey Sport Kings and my Muhammad Ali signed 1960 Hemmet's Journal as well as a few other sentimental favorites. I plan to collect signed HOF rookie cards again, but I'm going to limit myself to truly elite players. I sold because I had an investment opportunity that was too good to pass up. I was able to cover that investment plus pay off all my debt with this auction, so I'm at peace with selling.

Jason

Default Commons

Most of the Goudey commons sold for fairly modest prices. The problem with the commons is that no matter how tough they are there are only a handful of people trying for the set. Its a small enough number of collectors that one person (ie - me) shifting from a buyer to a seller significantly impacted the market. Not many people will pay a Mel Ott price for a Bill Cissell no matter how tough Cissell is. Some cards are just too rare for their own good and I think signed Goudeys fall into that category. Obviously the Hall of Fame players have a much broader market. The commons will probably continue to be suppressed until fresh faces start trying for the set, but with so few signed examples to go around its a daunting task that not many will want to take on. I anticipated Id take a loss on some of the commons, but I did well enough on the stars that it wasnt a big blow. Trying for the set was fun, but it I had been in this solely for profit I would have just collected the HOF players.
