    I tell you what, I'd buy any of the remaining base Belle cards I need for $5 each... I think I need 6 total at this point.

    Diffractors is a different story. That's just crazy pricing on these things.

    You wouldn't pay $30 each ? Considering they are very , very hard to locate one , let alone a specific pattern , it seems to be a decent price.

    I have to talk myself into bidding $10 a piece and even then I feel like there's too many other $10 cards I'd rather have than any one diffractor pattern

    First, I'm only talking about Albert Belle and let me be clear... I'd pay upwards of probably $5 or maybe a little more for a base pattern I need, given I only need about six or so at this point.

    As for diffractors, when at auction, they typically will go for $10 or less but I have been known to hit BINs at $20 fast. $30, $40, $50? I don't know if I'm there yet but you're right, they're rare and I guess it depends on when they spike and how much I have laying around to spend. Right now not many Belle's are out there that I need, so I'd probably pony up a little idk.

    Lot of comments about the $187.50 1998 Tek box that just sold recently. No idea who got it, or why. Maybe someone is going to stash them away hoping that boxes eventually sell at $300.00 per. Maybe someone is hoping the $187.50 box is a "hot" box. Two of them have surfaced in the past year. Otherwise you would need to pull two a couple of superstar diffractors if you were looking to sell to get your money back.

    Contrast that box to the $60.00 1998 Tek box I picked up on eBay this past week. 77 base 1998 Teks plus five 1998 Tek diffractors: S. Alomar p. 21 (a dupe for me), Buhner p. 43, Lankford p. 64, D. Lee p. 21, Mussina p. 29. The patterns might look familiar. This wasn't a box at all, but two lots of 51 and 54 Teks that include the 77 base 98 Teks plus five diffractors and a bonus of 23 misc. 1999 and 2000 Teks. The first lot went for $26.01, the second for $28.09, and $2.95 shipping for each = $60.00. Got the first lot in the mail yesterday. Just won the second lot today.

    Not sure I would have scored better cards out of the $187.50 box.

    Brash statement seeing as a couple of years ago $150 was a pipe dream.

    Not really.At some point they have to reach their peak and plateau.Pretty sure '89 UD boxes used to sell for 2-3 times what they sell for now.

    But UD ran the presses and kept printing Griffey RC long after 1989. Soft/flooded Jr. market killed those wax prices.

    The drive to complete Tek sets , player sets , etc will keep the wax at a $150+ level for a while IMO

    I put in a few bids on those glad you got them. I think there was a Brady Base in there but couldn't tell the pattern.
