I voted about the same as last year - except, of course, the things that I am looking for. Those are up 20+ %

I was thinking about the state of the market this weekend, and convinced myself things were pretty soft. I decided to pick one iconic card or two that could be the canary in the cold mine so to speak. I picked the 33 Goudey Ruths. Not the off the chart rarities, but the nice ones many collectors could be in the market for. The 5s, 6s, SGC 60s and 70s. After 10 minutes of "analysis" I basically came to the conclusion that there was no real conclusion to come to. Some were up a few thousand. . .some were down a few thousand. . .and many were basically where they've been. Not scientific but probably telling to some degree.

Yep. Always Murphy's law.

Depends on what you call "vintage". 1960's? Pre WWII? It seems like off condition 1950's and 1960's are soft. Same thing with lower grade Goudeys, Leaf, and Diamond Stars, except for the big names.

I voted about the same as last year, but it seems to me that graded T206's (commons and Hall of Famers) have gone up quite a bit in the past year. It also seems like the prices on graded T3 Turkey Reds are a bit soft right now (except for the big names). T206 rare variations (Elberfeld - Washington, Lundgren - Chicago, etc.) also seem to be down a bit.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.

I still can't get my hands on a reasonably priced G-VG Green Cobb. I didn't try in earnest till last summer - waiting for the boat to come back has made me forlorn.

I'm sure the answers will depend on what you are in the market for; the Goudey's and T206's I'm in the market for seem to have done well.

Sure that's true. There is no one market, but many of them. Sure particular things run hot and cold over time. Like real estate or anything else.
