Default T205 Prices Dropping?

Posted By: Robert

Having been tracking card prices for a year I have noticed that now you can pick up T205's for a lot less then 6 months ago. HOF's like Tinker, Evers, Clarke, Huggins, Wheat, Mcgraw where all selling in a PSA 5 for the $300-350 range. Now you can get them for mid to low $200. I just picked up a Huggins PSA 6 for $260.00.

With the T206's going out of site it seems like the T205's are back pedaling, there are a lot of nice T205 commons graded 6 and 7's and there is no action on them on EBAY riht now.

because of the auction season ending and the pending Nationals. Only makes sense since every other investment I know of cycles. If you have the $$ to do it, there are some great items out there at reasonable prices, I assume from folks breaking up auction winnings and/or preparing for the summer buying spree. I just added a card I've always liked for a very nice price.

Well if they are going to drop in prices like you say I'll just double my quantity of them, and wait a few years and sell them for some cash.

Also if they're selling so low it is probably because of a few sets being broken up and sold on ebay.

This is the set i'm collecting mainly and have been picking up some AMAZING deals on ebay, very happy with these, but it would be nice know i'll be able to sell them at least for what Im paying...

I'm holding until I get the whole set (or at least most of it!) then I might part out or sell as a whole, i can't decide, but it's one of my favorite sets and if the prices are on a downward trend, i'm excited!

pick them up now while they're cheap!

I agree. Unfortunately the T206 prices keep rising on EBAY:

May 23 Keeler portrait PSA 5 $821
May 23 Tinker portrait PSA 5 $1326
May 23 Evers with bat [Cubs] PSA 4 $464
May 14 Keeler [with bat] PSA 6 $1247

The price of the T205 John Bates on ebay is getting pretty high for a common. It is a great looking card, unique color and high grade.

It's interesting to look at the actual numbers from a given time period to compare apples to apples. Those data (expressed as average single card sale prices)are provided below. These are all for cards graded as Ex by one of the big three. I'll let you draw your own conclusions, but remember the sample sizes vary greatly:

T205
................ 2005...... 2006 (thru 5/21)

Clarke.......... $215...... $237
Evers........... $491...... NONE SOLD YET
Huggins......... $227...... $290
McGraw.......... $298...... $339
Tinker.......... $302...... $243
Wheat........... $279...... $277

T206 (same players as above)

Clarke (bat).... $275...... $465
Clarke (port)... $252...... $290
Evers (bat-Chi). $306...... $415
Evers (bat-Cub). $561...... $886
Evers (port).... $510...... $932
Huggins (hand).. $218...... $519
Huggins (port).. $229...... $330
McGraw (cap).... $269...... $326
McGraw (finger). $264...... $459
McGraw (glove).. $316...... $284
McGraw (port)... $338...... $376
Tinker (hands).. $355...... $615
