Awesome gets. Also, proof that you can get a great card at a "cheaper" price just because the assigned grade was decided differently by Person B to Person A. Interesting to note that PSA 7 sold for $514 compared to a $375 BIN the day before and a $425 Auction on 1/9.I lost the PSA 7. But I found another version of that '58 Mantle that looked just about as good, an SGC 6.5, with similarly good centering, color and overall eye appeal. The seller also had a 1933 Goudey Mel Ott rookie, PSA 1.5 FR. Low grade due to rounded corners but, again, great eye appeal on the front image.
I was able to get both for less than the PSA 7 Mantle alone ended up selling for.
I think you're right. There's still good money to be made investing in serial #d cards IMO that can be graded down the road but I'm just waiting for the bubble to burst on stuff like the Prizm. I think there's a bigger print run than people think, Panini is printing them up because the $$ market & demand are there, and I can see PSA trying to play "Pop Control" depending on the player.I think vintage is going to keep going up. Not always exponentially, like it seems to be at the moment, but I'm confident in a steady rise. I really think it's going to be, if not already, similar to the fine art market. I do think some modern stuff will continue to be good investments as well but there are some bubbles yet to burst there, imo.
This is probably a good time to get those vintage all star, league leaders, multi player, etc cards, especially while higher grades are still attainable.
As a big fan of sports history and baseball history (partially thanks to the fantastic OOTP baseball computer game series), there's a lot of underrated 60s players behind the "big names" that can be had who are Hall of Famers such as Nellie Fox.Yeah. A Williams card would definitely be a good investment at some point. I limited myself more by sticking to just 60s to coincide with the PSA special. I got what looked to be cheap, good condition cards of Red Sox and a couple guys with funny names for now. Most expensive thing I picked up already was a 1965 rookie gold cup Tony Conigliaro for $20. The thing Im winning is more but it is also more than one card but features one I’ve pinpointed as a main get for my interests in that era.
History for ya Smith served as the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies (1955–1958), Cincinnati Reds (1959), and Detroit Tigers (1967–1970), compiling a managerial record of 662–612 (.520). He received The Sporting News Manager of the Year Award in 1968 after the Tigers won the American League (AL) pennant by 12 games with a record of 103–59 (.636) and defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1968 World Series.I got a 1969 Mayo Smith card because he was an old white guy named Mayo and I got it for $1.49 shipped
Great stuff. The Jackie Jensen raw goes for $20 - $25 alone so that's a fantastic deal.So the card I got follows up Manager of the Year win, nice.
I won my item. It was the 29 card 1961 Topps Red Sox team set. Why this was so big? It has the Carl Yastrzemski rookie. I had been seeing good copies of the Carl in the $50 to $75 range. The cards all looked in pretty good shape and the seller estimated the value around $315. I won after tax and shipping for $89.03.
