The Marty Lounge>I want to show you my newest sports card...

The sports card market is absolutely booming right now. I sold off enough of my other stuff to buy this. There are only 10 of them. It is indescribably beautiful.

But like he said earlier, the fact that a standard Bowman box that only guarantees one auto will soon approach $350+ when just last year they were $150 or less at release should tell you something. The sportscard market is on a heater like we've never seen. Basketball has abso-freaking-lutely EXPLODED! I sold a 2012 Prizm complete set that I had priced at $70 on my table at shows for years for $1600 two weeks ago. Seriously, between Prizm Basketball, Mahomes, and Ronald Acuna, a guy who bought deep stashes of a few hundred cards for very little $5-100 (some maybe more) each, could pay off his home and almost retire off the current market. I think I've done close to $11,000 already just since the start of COVID.

One big thing I noticed, the younger athletes seem to not really care or put any effort into their signature or autograph, it's almost like a scribble. I'm sure they sign a million items, but guys like Arnold Palmer, who I have one from '62 looks perfect and looked the same 5 years ago. Cal Ripken signed more autographs than anyone, it was perfect.

These are from 1967 Baltimore Colts camp, I got them all in person when I was 17, everyone of these you can read and this when they were from sweaty jocks working out in summer camp. This was a good day and I got about 10 more that same day such as Bubba Smith, Jimmy Orr, Rick Volk, Lenny Lyles, Bruce Laird and Don Shinnick to name a few. Players had no problem signing, talking to the fans, in fact we stood on the sideline right next to the field. Actually Gino Marchetti had retired and showed in a suit driving a convertible Cadillac Eldorado with the top down. He pulled up in the middle of the field, got out, took off his jacket and grabbed rookie Bubba Smith and starting showing what to do.

Raymond Berry, Don Shula, Johnny Unitas

Bill Curry, Ray Perkins, Gino Marchetti, John Mackey

Mathis was tied into PWCC in some capacity. He even made some remarks on net51 (I think that was the site) when his name got drug up there. He certainly trolled the guys there and didn't come across as overly innocent. This all came about around the same time he sold his psa9 Mantle.

I sold an 80% complete set of 88 fleer basketball in mostly psa9, with a few 10s (Jabbar, etc) for an amount I kind of felt bad about a couple years ago. The guy just offered the amount. Now? Geez, the Pippen, Jordan, and Rodman are sky high. Not to mention the Miller, Stockton, the AS cards as the end, and the random HOFers sprinkled in. I felt kind of guilty then, but it turns out I lost my butt. lol

The card market is NUTS.... a pretty average Mahomes rookie can garner 500 bones if it's a 10...

National Treasures are amazing. The Duo, Trio & Quads are great ideas too.

What sport? A lot of the 80s and 90s cards (with very few exceptions) are junk

They don't have to buy boxes? How many kids do you know that can go into a hobby shop and pay $15-50 per pack?

I'm not even going to get into the troubles with retail and how it takes advantage of kids dollars.

Collecting singles will never grow the hobby. A boy wants a treasure hunt.
The bowman thing to me is crazy. Iíve watched so many breaks on YouTube and they get 1 no name autograph of a guy who will never play in the majors and some common rookies. I have no idea whatís driving the price on that. Frankly even some of the high end stuff Iím left scratching my head at how anyone makes money without being really lucky. I guess one great card balances out the bunch of expensive crappy boxes that donít have anything.

I like cards to have real life action shots. I really don't care for cards with players cut out- into disco ball backgrounds.
Now , I don't hate all of them. Some are done with balance. But prism and optic make it too passe. /overkill.

Everyone thinks Jasson can become the next Trout.

Any athletes in particular garnering attention from the 90ís currently?
