If we can collectively not bid on some items some sellers might exit the hobby.

This of course means you'll need to forego "stuff" in hopes to buy it later.

I have cards similar to what PWCC occasionally auctions off. I follow the bids, check up on closing prices - wow, tough to believe, but heck, could be reality.

At this point I wonder, If said card on PWCC closes for $10.k, could I sell my copy for the same $10.k if I listed it myself? Asuming centering/registration, etc is as good.

Also tinkering with the idea if $10.k gets the PWCC card, perhaps I could list at $11-12.k and sooner than later get the sale in this booming market.

Anyone have first hand recent experience doing this? Thx for input.

PWCC has

Vault (free tax)
international shipping
easy to sell if your card in vault
cash advances
payment plan

they sell more than cards, although i only buy from them twice, but i do see if i'm not in US, probably will buy more from them

And here's an example, pwcc vs non pwcc on 54 aaron psa 7, that pwcc one is nicer one. price about the same

Seeing 52 Topps Robinson and Mays cards multiplying in asking price for every listing is laughable. Who the hell is dumb enough to even consider paying half of current asking prices? Desperate attempts by dreamers. Looking forward to resuming some type of norm again. And no I don’t think these new prices, 52 Mantle PSA 1s at 30k plus, are real. Eventually people are going to start listing cards again and real prices will shake out.

I will admit that the heights the '52 Jackie is attaining are astonishing to me. 20+ years ago when I was young and dumb, I had a G-VG copy of that card with a hard to see crease that presented fantastically, and was dead-nuts centered. I think I let it go for around $500. Whoops.

I don’t think they’re coming down anytime soon with pwcc and hedge fund investors pouring money into Goldin...the 52 Mantle in a 1 might come down a little bit but will never drop drastically, no matter what condition.

Agree. But those bad ugly 1 you can get for under 30 still. The bearded mantle sold for 13k I think a week or two ago. But average looking one I think will hard to get down below 30

When there are more people trying to move cards at once and we see more than 5-10 examples active in the market, true prices will show. Current price increases can not sustain their rate of change.

It's not just baseball cards either. I paid 300 for an Allen Iverson rookie to give to my son for Christmas (2 months ago!) The card just sold yesterday for 3900.

There are a lot of new collectors that just want to buy stuff and they don't care how much it costs.

Two cards on my watch list are just befuddling me today. One, a 1973 Kellogg's PSA 10 Stargell is at just under $90 with a little time left. Of the last five sales, three 10's went for under $20, and the other two sold for $25 and $24.99. Getting 10's in this set is pretty frickin' easy, as it seems to almost be the default setting at PSA. I believe they don't come up for sale too often because there is no profit in them. Weird.

The second one is what I call a "Discounterpart" - a lesser valued card in the set that also contains the player's rookie card. It's a PSA 9 OC 1972 'Dr. J' All Star card, and it's at $209 with a couple of hours left!! Before Covid, I picked up a better centered PSA 9 OC version for around $35 all told.

Yowza!!!

I saw that Greg Morris had a 1976 Topps Jim Rice up over $50 the other day. That’s...something.

When there is so much 1981 to present stock out there, how can the PSA10 & PSA9 be going for these prices. Everyone looking in their closet could have 9's and 10"s , then just submit, wait 10 months and reap the rewards.
Seems like the newer stuff would be subjected to a crash rather than low population vintage high grade. All sports
