I don't know what the future holds for big rookies, but if the trend continues the big rookies will be out of reach for many of us in most grades. Very happy I payed $14K for mine in 2014.

Point taken. Many baseball cards i been wanting have gone way too high, with so much supply, that its not worth chasing.
While i was sitting idle for months end, I took a swing into the same card above mentioned. But as a Bobby Orr USA TEST card.

I guess so.

I have always wanted one but always thought they were expensive and unattainable for the most part but it looks like I should have bit the bullet years ago and purchased one.
Many are now popping up and receiving great prices so my chances of ever owning one now are pretty slim, unfortunately.

I've been doing pretty good, imo, grabbing other Orr cards as well, but my desire to own an Orr RC someday is still strong even though, like I said above, it will almost be impossible for me to obtain one.

I know some have said I could if I sold my Mantle card but that is not going to happen anytime soon.

So glad I recently picked up the Orr rookie. No question it is on the rise and probably 10 years from now I will certainly be glad I bought when I did.

If you can get $100,000 USD for your PSA 8 one day, then you should do it and put that money into other bluechip cards. If you make the right moves, then you can double or even triple your money. The best part about doing this is that you get to enjoy playing with so many different cards.

I bought 2 PSA 8s way back in the day for around 3K each. LOL who knew. If only...

This is what drives a lot of purchases now -- FOMO.

Default Pure madness!!!!!

On Jan 18th, an O-Pee-Chee Gretzky RC in PSA 8 sold for $25,000 USD. Yesterday, another one went for $27,500 USD. And today, a big Canadian dealer, who had his PSA 8 sitting up on eBay for $30,000 USD, ended up taking it down! Wow!

Look at the Borque and Messier rookies on PWCC's auction. Don't ever remember them being even close to where they are now. The Lemieux is over $60K. What a great time to be a seller.
