Default How do you see the market 10yrs from now

I took about an 8 yr break from collecting and just started back last summer. I was shocked to see how much the market has changed. I am especially surprised on how much some PSA 9s have sky rocketed on rookies such as Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas and even Lew Alcindor. Does this mean starting investing in PSA 8.5s? It seems like pre war is becoming more popular but in mid to high grade. Vintage high grade has sky rocketed as well.

I wanted some opinions on which cards you guys believe will be worth the most in 10 yrs. Assuming all these cards are the same price right now $30-40k range:


51 bowman mantle PSA 6.5
52 topps mantle PSA 4
33 goudey Ruth #144/#149 PSA 7
68 topps Nolan Ryan PSA 9
55 topps Clemente PSA 8
54 topps Aaron PSA 8
55 topps Koufax PSA 8.5
79 OPC Gretzky PSA 9

Which ones would be at the top of your list?

Default Not sure

Not sure you've noticed, but last year seemed to be an exception with cards sky-rocketing prices of high grade rookies, etc., but now those prices are falling back to earth. In general, the idea of "investing" in cardboard is still a very risky proposition. The iconic cards like '52 Mantle etc are relatively safe if authenticated, etc.

This Mays, although a 9, looks like it will do very well.

Never seen a nicer, Runnels, that I can remember, but this one also looks like it will end very well.

I am curious where this Mantle is going to end up, and if the current PWCC Dimaggio situation will affect prices any? (I am guessing not, by the looks of things)

Ok I need to call bullshit. 150k for that mays with 7 days left? None is gonna bid that card up that fast. That's so fake. Every time I use vintagecardprices.com there is always card "a" selling on average for let's say 50 and then OECD sold one for 110. something is so so so shady and off. Thoughts?

Surprisingly, not a lot of bid retractions with the current lot of bidders.

PWCC auctions, as I have said many times, do not behave like other auctions. And this is one way they don't -- big cards get bid up out of the gate real fast and real high.

If I can still see my cards 10 years from now I will be happy whatever the market may look like

That makes 2 of us Al-R. I do believe there is price manipulation with some sellers - but I also agree with Peter that the bidding history in PWCC auctions does not particularly follow that of other auctions. They have a good following and many buyers will pay a premium for the service that they provide.

Outside of allowing 90 days to settle your account on higher dollar cards through either cash or consignments, what other services do they provide that other sellers on ebay or AHs do not?

Some buyers will pay a premium for purchasing cards from a well known eBay seller with a track record & history of selling legit cards.
