Question to consider now: Given what I believe about the bidding activity, am I willing to compete for the listings I'm interested in?
Like you said, the final sale prices were already going to be strong but may be higher given the *spitballs* we saw Monday/Tuesday.
I'm 99.99% sure the Maddux wasn't originally purchased to be resold.
Will Clark / Mike Brown Collector
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ODDBALL, REGIONAL, TEAM ISSUED, VARIATIONS, AND TOUGH CARDS OF WILL CLARK AND MIKE BROWN
Ebay listing that one of those two clowns operates . If you really have to own the card , go for it . If you want a pay a certain price , just be patient and the card will surface again , probably even within a month . one last point about grading guys is the multiplier you get with certain players . The set registry has created an opportunity to generate a lot of money that you can parlay back into your collections . In the last PWCC auction a 1996 Jeter Pacific Crown Collection base card in a PSA 10 got 476 dollars . That's a 50 cent card at a show , it is almost borderline insanity . There have been 6 1996 Bowman foil Jeter cards that have graded 10 . I am responsible for four of them . I kept one in my collection and the other three have brought back almost 4000 dollars in cash and trade . How do you NOT do this ( grade your cards ) is a better question ! I really didn't think this would catch on when it first started . I felt grading should stay with coins and had no place in our hobby . I missed that boat . I could have had Jeter 1993 PSA 10s back in the day for 3 to 5 grand and now they're 50 grand . SHOULD HAVE , COULD HAVE , BUT DIDN'T . THE WORDS OF A LOSER ! Most decisions in life are nothing more than a math equation and seeing what graded cards get over raw cards is simple math . Have a great night guys . John

Question about 1999 Finest Refractors. I noticed the back of my GEMS subset card has no refractor finish. I noticed the back of my Sterling subset card does have a refractor finish. I do not have a Gamers subset card. I looked at the back of refractors on COMC, but I cannot tell from their scans if the backs are refractor finish. Just making sure that Sterling subset refractors are supposed to have a refractor finish on the back, and curious which ones do and which ones do not (base, GEMS, Sterling, Gamers, Rookies). Thank you.
On a quick eBay search it looks like the gamers do.
I couldn't find a great example of the gems with the refractor finish, however this Scott rolen claims to be MINTY! I'm not sure if this is a scratch and sniff or just a general smell or grading slang
Griffey and i am a little surprised there isn't a larger premium for rare cards that PSA 10 or Beckett 9.5 . I have found that Ripken and Chipper collectors don't generally push the card prices to the moon , but on the other side you have guys like Will Clark and Omar Vizquel where i have seen prices for certain cards even surpass Jeter . Maybe 10 years from now you will get the same scenario with some of these guys . A lot of the children that these guys have had an influence on through camps and baseball leagues are now becoming doctors , lawyers etc. and may create that same fervor for the registry that you have seen with other players and even set builders for that matter . Time will tell , but I am always going to be an advocate for grading the more expensive or rare items in your collection . I do think it is crazy to grade the recent base common as supply and demand is easily controlled . Besides a showcase full of PSA 10 Jeters , Ripkens and Griffeys looks awesome at the National ! Later , John
...And the bids of one of the two 15k+ feedback bidders have been canceled across the board (the other had some bids canceled as well). Look at some of these prices now.
Looks like some other bidders have retracted their bids as a result of these bidders' bids being canceled.
Can we chalk this up to PWCC listening to the shilling complaints?
Welcome back to the game, everyone

Let the MLB know you’d like to see UD back. The license comes up in a couple years and they listen on social media.
