Unbelievable that a card made in 1980 sold for almost 1/2 million dollars at Goldin Sports auction.
And an O Pee Chee at that
Fuck I used to have the entire series from that year when I was a kid. I think there were almost 800 in total with all the specialty cards and team cards. Thanks Mom for "cleaning' my room and throwing out my old crap.
What can I get for one of these, NIB, but the box is a little fucked up:
That's more authentic for Canucks.
Is it jizz free?
Gem Mint 10
How does that rough cut on the sides get the gem mint grade? Looks like shit. I don't care if most were cut that way. They all weren't, which means it's possible to exist in better condition and therefore the gem mint grade is wrong. The whole grading thing is stupid anyway.
I have a Ron Swoboda rookie card sitting on my desk.
I'm asking 6 bucks.
My thoughts exactly.
I noticed the same thing.
piece of cardboard with a blurry picture... I guess the demand dictates the price....I just don't get it
I have a Topps version of that card. Bought it in '85 for $10.
I have no idea what it's worth.
I sent an 84 Donruss Cal Ripken to be graded because I was sure it would receive at least a 9.5 and I'd cash in. BGS sent it back with a 8.5 and it looked a fuck sight better than this one. Sold it at a net loss
How do you go about getting cards graded?
i don't remember. it was a long time ago.
Yeah, my dad's had some grading done and was disappointed a lot.
When my dad was doing it, he'd sign up for a year membership. I forget what the cost was, but that membership included a few gradings with it and I think there was also a magazine. If you wanted to have more cards graded, you'd have to pay more. There were different rates and rules for different type of cards. He'd mail them in and they'd mail them back in the graded cases. You could even request that they don't put it in the case if the grading is lower than X (but you still had to pay). There are a number of different grading companies now.
the grading system ruined baseball cards.
I just checked out one of the companies sites and it looks like the most complicated process in the world.
Didn't understand a word.
