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.

I started to check some prices on Ebay a bit this morning and this is my conclusion:

The Football cards going for big dollar are the Autographed, Jersey, and Rookie cards (Graded at a 10).

Even super rare/limited print cards that used to be worth Hundreds of dollars in the 1990's are only being listed for like $10-$20 now.

If the card isn't authenticated at a grade of 10, the value becomes somewhat irrelevant.

So I looked into grading.... and it costs $20-$50 per card? I mean, I get it... but ouch.

I doubt mine would come back at a grade 10.

a lot of the auto market is hilarious. Twenty different kinds of autos from the same player, numbered /25 /99 or /50... which makes one believe that it is way more rare than it is.

When I renewed my psa account, I had a remarkable difference in grading on the free voucher when I went platinum over gold.

Scum bags all over the hobby.

Maybe it is me but every time I meet some hobby shop owner, I always reminded of some slimy used car salesman.

I guess one great card balances out the bunch of expensive crappy boxes that donít have anything.

All speculative bullshit. I hate it.

It's not even worth the entry price. But I've felt that way on Bowman for years and it still goes up.

Iíve watched stuff like this but does it really matter?

Can you go over the cost of both? Iíve thought about the platinum.

If anybody is buying, Id sell the 86 fleer basketball set I've been working on. straight psa9, the big cards still missing are Jordan, Wilkins, checklist, and Steve Johnson. its just under 50% and I have most of the tough commons along with all of the other star cards.

Just throwing it out there.

platinum is quite a bit higher, but it gives you 15 vouchers vs the 6 you otherwise would get. I had heard from a friend that platinum is the way to go if you are wanting better grades up front. He wasn't wrong.

From that submission, here are 4 cards I submitted for example.

I sent in an old Chiefs card, a 64 topps Smokey Stover. Needed it for a registry set and didn't want to pay $200 for a common. So I had one I thought would get psa7, but it came back 8.

I submitted (2) 2000 Topps Chrome john Abraham rookies. Again, another registry set need. I think I gave maybe 5 bucks per card. I subbed them both, thinking both would be 9. Got a 9 and a 10. sold the 9 for way too little apparently. It went within 45 minutes of listing on ebay.

I needed to add one other card to finish the submission so I added an 89 score Barry Sanders. it came back 10. I had subbed other 89 scores in the past and never got a 10. this time I did, go figure.

In any bulk submission or 6 card voucher, I never had the ceiling I did with the platinum submission. Maybe I just wised up and finally submitted cards that were solid? Who knows. I've got a bunch of mid-80s rookies that I would like to grade and would justify the signup costs. Thinking about doing it again to see if lightning strikes again.

Why not try out SGC? I've seen a lot of people moving over to SGC over PSA lately. Their slabs sure do look and feel better than PSA. Their grading from what I have run across has always been spot on.

The Jeff Malone is a much harder card, in my opinion. But yes, Moore is included. lol
