Dear All

Just ended another round of auctions last night and it's hard not to be dissappointed. Just focusing on the star cards from 63 Fleer that I was moving, here is what the results were.

Mays(84): Sold for $80, SMR for a "7" = $185

Gibson (86): Sold for $50, SMR for a "7" = $90, an "8" = $175

Drysdale (86): Sold for $60, SMR for a "7" = $75, an "8" = $175

Robinson (86): Sold for $71, SMR for a "7" = $95, an "8" = $235

Adcock (86): No opening bid@$99.99, SMR for a "7" = $150, an "8" = $300

What conclusions do you all draw from this??

Is SMR so WRONG that my 86's in aggregate sold for 69% of SMR for a "7"??

Is there still a significant premium on PSA graded cards relative to SGC??

Do collectors just view 86 as a "7"??

Did my strategy of start the bid at the absolute lowest I would accept for the cards, which was generally 50% of SMR for a 7, scare people away?

All of the above??

Your insights are most welcome.

Regards

Ron

P.S. Anybody want a nice Joe Adcock card from the 63 Fleer set?
