You might want to take a look at the Bobby Richardson and Billy O'Dell. Among others.



The Richardson is high and possibly a record price. The O'Dell is not. I count over a dozen others (17 to be exact) that sold for below SMR.

Michael,

I was talking about a record "high" price of the O'Dell card #66. The lowest POP PSA 8 in the set.

By the way..the SMR of this card in PSA 8 has been increasing over the past several months.

That is the reason I bought it via BIN for $175.00 ($25.00 over SMR). I sold it for $350 ish.

The O'Dell is the higest I remember. I wouldnt stake my life on it...there could of been one that sold higher...I just dont recall. Maybe you could you that pay website to look it up for me (that shows eBay transactions for the last 3 years).

I agree with you the HOF'ers sell below SMR....I would never buy a 60's Hall of Famer PSA 8 at SMR except maybe a 1965 Topps Whitey Ford in PSA 8. They are always available (as you know) on eBay.

As with most hobbies...scarcity and quality brings the bucks.

BTW..props to you on your Babe Ruth Auction Listing...I have to admit...that is one of the nicest layouts...that I have ever seen for an eBay auciton.

I would of thought the card would of sold for more though.

John,

Thank you for the compliment on the Ruth auction.

I agree with you that a somewhat higher price should have been realized, but I think that two factors were working against me:

1. The proliferation of fake AAA and NASA graded Spalding cards on eBay -- i.e., those that are little more than paper scrap cut from Spalding baseball guides.

2. The SMR's random and unusually low prices for this issue

Over the past two years, we've recorded the following sales:

1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - SGC 96 - $6,000
1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - SGC 92 - $5,000
1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - SGC 88 - $2,025
1926 Spalding - Mickey Cochrane - SGC 96 - $1,500
1926 Spalding - Tony Lazzeri - SGC 96 $1,000
1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - PSA 9 - $5,000
1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - PSA 9 - $5,100
1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - PSA 9 - $3,750
1926 Spaldling - Babe Ruth - PSA 9 - $3,300
1926 Spalding - Babe Ruth - PSA 9 - $2,600
1926 Spalding - Walter Johnson - PSA 9 - $1,000

SMR Values:
Babe Ruth - PSA 8 $1,400
Babe Ruth - PSA 9 $2,750
Mickey Cochrane - PSA 9 $325 (should be labeled as a rookie)
Tony Lazzeri - PSA 9 $325 (should be labeled as a rookie)
Walter Johnson - PSA 9 $550

Where the SMR gets its prices from, I don't know, but one thing is certain -- the prices they list do not accurately reflect real market conditions. At any rate, I think the buyer got an excellent value on a very undervalued card. If he offered the card back to me at the same price, I'd buy it without hesitation.
