Lots of folks in that category but their auctions dont fly out of the gate.

You should sign in and check recent prices before you make an accusation like that. 150k would be a place holder bid on that card. Recent sales range from 310k to almost 500k.

You got that right, Mr. Richter.

I'm currently in the middle of watching the actual television broadcast of the 7th game of the 1952 World Series, with Mel Allen and Red Barber at the mic. Truly, that series was one of the greatest of all-time. I don't know why I waited so long to treat myself to this. By the way, the game is available anytime anyone wishes to see it on YOUTUBE.

They can turn SGC 4's into PSA 7's.

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?

Here's a reminder of what this thread is supposed to be about. Seems to have veered into the usual morass of PWCC bashing, shill bidding, and price manipulation complaints. Like there aren't enough of those already.

I would be infinitely more interested in reading responses to the OP's original question...

To get back on topic my best guess is rare pre-war cards of big name players will be better investments long term than post war rookies will be. Mantle will be the one exception. I don't think you can go wrong holding a 52 topps or 33 Ruth for 10 years. Anything Gehrig, Cobb, Jackson, or Wagner would also be fine.

I understand it is a place holder and I did look it up, but the point is NOOOOONE bids up auctions that fast. Noone. There are no other examples other than these. People usually wait till the end to try to get the best deal possible, NOT come out the gate showing all their cards.

Although the 52 mays psa 9 is out of my price range I will regularly place bids early on an eBay auction for 1/2 of what I feel an item is worth on the first day. That is all that happened here.
