So what's the vintage card for 2018?
 
2017 the board was all over the Jackie Bond Bread card. Up up.

2016 it was the Gehrig rookie Exhibits. Up up.

So what's the hot card in 2018 we all wish we bought in January? Do tell.

T202 Cobb sliding cobb Jennings

ullmandds 01-26-2018 08:00 PM

Other cards experienced similar increases as Jackie...like early Cobbs esp postcards but even caramels to a lesser degree, t206 green..some ruth cards...e121 has dramatically increased last year or so, anything ruth/red sox.

2018...who knows...but I think anything with a rare back and a big hofer on the front is a good bet!

Dietsche Cobb fielding should be a 20K card in nice shape.

T206 Red Cobb

Not pre-war, but 1952 and/or 1953 Topps Willie Mays.

1914 Cracker Jack Mathewson.

Joshwesley 01-26-2018 09:51 PM

As we gear up for 2019 (later on this year)
Look for joe Jackson stuff to start soaring.

Cracker Jack, strip card etc

less heralded rookie year cards of iconic players
 
hard to pick one out of those below. along with being rookie year cards with nice images, the pops on all of these cards (i include over-sized pieces as cards) are relatively low.

j. dimaggio: 1936 R312 is his nicest rookie year card in my opinion.

j. robinson: 1947 homogenized bond bread - this is different from 1947 portrait facsimile bond bread that skyrocketed in value last year; 1947 (incorrectly labeled as 1948 by grading cos.) old gold cigarettes kneeling in dugout

t. williams: 1939 goudey premiums

outside of these i think there is a lot of upside in good eye appeal e90-1 cy young cards. iconic player and gorgeous card. leon, if you read this, it's a good invitation to show your prized possession for some eye candy.

BeanTown 01-26-2018 10:03 PM

We have seen Ty Cobb Postcards soar up in value. Plus, Type one photos have had a nice uptick too.

So, Ill go with Ty Cobb Cabinets.

Yup. Shoeless Joe cards.

Itís time for the hobby to embrace the Gold Borders with more veracity.

Iím thinking that the true SPís as well as higher grade examples (6-7+) will skyrocket.

I think a thread saying 'hottest future card in the hobby that the poster does not own' would be more useful

I think this is a good rule to follow. Therefore, my vote will go to the 1957 Topps Frank Robinson rookie in mid to high grade. Should be selling for double of what they are IMO, even though they are very plentiful.

In pre-war I think a lot of Goudey cards are underappreciated right now. Could see any of the Gehrig's, Foxx's, or Hornsby's going up big time. For tobacco cards, I think a lot of Matty cards are cheap (though I own a lot of them so I won't mention any specifically lol).

It was meant to be a joke actually, but as I'm now explaining that, apparently not a very good one.

Dang, I thought my post with the W9316 cards was the only joke answer. Now I will have to stew quietly in the corner, with the only sounds being the cracking of my knuckles.

I figured it was a joke but, you never know. Thought you might know something the rest of us didn't! :)

I might, but I'm not giving out those answers for free, just the fake ones.

jbsports33 01-30-2018 04:00 PM

Most likely something from the 1920s - some great sets out there not as well known - strip cards, candy and odd ball types

I don't think it's any one card, but a kind of card. I think this year we'll see a serious spike in prices for cards with eye appeal. I could see people beginning to wise up on OJ's and paying strong for cards with back damage but vibrant images and I can see the average price of a card in poor or fair condition with eye appeal approaching mid-grade value under the right conditions.

insidethewrapper 01-30-2018 04:20 PM

1907 Dietsche Postcard Ty cobb Fielding. Only 8 graded by PSA and 7 by SGC.

MR RAREBACK 01-30-2018 04:35 PM

I think t206 green cobbs are going to go down, everyone should sell them to me before it happens

100backstroke 01-30-2018 04:53 PM

Other T206's
 
It would be nice to see the other major T206 HOF'ers make significant move up. I know they have gone up, but not quite like the Cobb's.

BeanTown 01-30-2018 04:54 PM

Ok, so after reading this thread its TY COBB

Quick, somebody start a thread on the Ty Cobb bubble.

pokerplyr80 01-30-2018 08:20 PM

I'd have to agree Joe Jackson seems like a good guess. I like a few of the post war RCs if youre looking for a value at current prices.

The 1914 CJ SGC 1.5 on eBay right now certainly is a good way for Shoeless Joe to start the year.

orly57 01-31-2018 12:13 PM

I don't own them anymore, so this is impartial. I think the beautiful, early Ruth Exhibits have so much room to grow. So criminally undervalued. I think they are among his most attractive cards, and are far more rare and early than the Goudeys.

i agree...too bad oversized cards are a no-go for many collectors!

With the surge of the Gehrig Exhibit and the rare postcards, I think that's changing. Cobb PCs are certainly booming (so much for impartiality). So I think it should follow that the Ruth's, though not nearly as rare as the more valuable Cobbs, should get the attention they deserve.

Yoda 01-31-2018 03:16 PM

I think that '15 Cracker Jack Hof'ers are due to close the price gap with the '14's in 2018. For sure, there are the '15 factory sets which skew population reports plus scads of nrmt cards that have emerged over the years. Add in the fact they are arguably the most beautiful cards ever produced, people want them in the best condition possible and to hell with the history. And I think the '15 CJ's of Matty and Hal Chase are just plain gorgeous.

You may be right! Early Ruth exhibits could be had for less than 1K for most in nice shape maybe 2 years ago...now they'3-4 times more...these definitely have room to run. And I totally agree they are much rarer and imo desirable as compared to goudeys...most other ruth cards are to me!

And most cobb pc's are technically rookies so that kinda helps the valuations as compared to ruth. has an m101-3 appreciated much lately?

There's only one rookie Cobb...w601 PC IMO. Maybe the hobby will wake up to this card?

and some think postcards are too big!!!!!!:)

LincolnVT 01-31-2018 07:25 PM

My guess would be something rare Ruth...Fredrick Foto, 1921 E121 variations, Boston Store, Collins McCarthy...his rare early postcards. M101 should continue to be hot. Ruth Red Sox related type 1 photos as well. Anything early Ruth with a pop less than 25.

I also see rare Jackie Robinson and high grade Robinson rookie stuff as a sure thing.

Well, I guess that wasn't just one card now was it...��

Just saw it. It's a shame I didn't pick one up when I first started looking. Great looking card for the grade.

The post-war card looks like the Tom Brady RC: Link

This. Ridiculous prices. I donít think I have ever seen a card rise in value this fast.
