    So what happens when/if the Vizquel Supercollector backs out of the market??

    How many people will be stuck with big losses??

    I have not been able to be lucky enough to land one worth selling. But after seeing sale after sale reaching ridiculous numbers it does have me thinking. What if this person says, that is it, I have had enough? Other than a immediate decrease in about 100x the current sales prices, are there a lot of people out there who will be stuck with their hand in the cookie jar? It may never happen but I have got to think that it can't sustain itself. Kind of like a hot stock where some people will lose their ***. I don't mind losing a few bucks, but I imagine that some will be in for a substantial loss. Again, this is a big what if but it could happen.

    There is more then 1 Vizquel collector.. That's why the prices are as high as they are..

    I have sold Vizquel stuff to more then 1 buyer..

    So both of the buyers are paying these huge amounts? Just curious... And wouldn't it still hold true if there are only two paying these amounts. Get rid of one then the competition goes away.. At least at these prices.

    I have the same issue with Edgar Martinez..

    I used to be one of the big Edgar Martinez Collectors.. Now there are others that are outbidding me..

    One of the sellers I have been in contact and we have sold to each other our dupes, but now there are a few more that have been outbidding both of us..

    Yes, if one of the two super collectors backed out of the market then prices on the rare stuff would drop significantly because he'd no longer have any competition willing to pay massive amounts.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Totally agree with this...there definitely seems to be more competition for the rare stuff.
    Always looking for new Edgar Martinez Cards.

    Currently at 191 unique relic cards & 150 unique autograph cards.

    Count your lucky stars that it hasnt gotten to the Astronomical prices yet that Vizquel has. At some point I imagine it cant be that enjoyable spending the money they have. Then again to them spending 50k is like some of us spending 1k I imagine

    Yeah, I think it's just a matter of how many Vizquel Supercollectors are out there. I think he has more Supercollectors out there than Thome does.

    At this point, I think a lot of the "competition" is people investing in Visquel to sell to one of the big collectors...

    It happened with Thome a year or 2 ago. When the HUGE Thome buyer stepped back, everyone was left holding their dicks (and their rare Thomes)
