Yeah I know what you mean, but those recent sales were like BIN leftovers that weren't pumped up much. They weren't really overpriced even before the surge of the last week. So they're a little easier to believe.

If someone supposedly pays $100 k for PSA 3.5, then it's time to really wonder. That listing disappeared, btw (without being sold there)

But seriously, I hope you are right. My retirement window (proposed) is about 15 years, so if my collection doubles or triples in value in the interim, I might be able to exit the rat race a few years early.
But would you really sell? I tell my wife, “hey guess what my card was $X and now it’s $Y and my other card increased 3 fold from three years ago... and... after her eye roll, she goes “so what, you’re never selling”.... hahaha

As someone who is on the verge of retiring, and has been semi-retired for just over a year, I used to think the same thing. While my cards are not seven figures, they are well into six figures in value, and would make a small difference in my monthly income, by investing them properly.

Except, here is the deal... I'm not done collecting. I am fortunate in that I don't need to cash them out, but with the kids launched and less expenses, I actually have the opportunity to accumulate more. So I do.

I have not lost that desire to keep collecting, and it's something I will continue to enjoy into retirement.

Or maybe I'm just weird

Chris and Andrew, thanks and I hope to have time later today to do a thread about how I was connected to the original pack puller and the content of the great conversation he was so generous and kind to provide. Also hoping to pick the card itself up soon, as I just had it re-holdered.

In terms of the pricing discussion, I can contribute that a PSA 1 just sold for $33,000, which I think is the new record. It was the one listed on eBay for 49,999 OBO. I know the seller well and asked him; he has been paid and shipped it. The other recent sale I know of was a 5 which went for 118k in a private sale.
