Default Exhibit Prices

Posted By: warshawlaw

Many key exhibits from the seller of the cards we've been discussing were quite strong. I know because I lost out on quite a few and/or paid rather hefty prices for others. True, the same 1921s that are on ebay every friggin' week did not set records, but what do you expect? Scarcer cards went quite well even given the lack of overall understanding of the cards' rarity among the general collecting populace.

given the conditions of those cards with the typing and writing on the back....any without visible front flaws did really really well. Lots of the 'commons' were in the $30-$60 range with some of the more obscure but not big name HOFers going for $200+. Thought that was all pretty strong for stuff that wouldn't likely get over an SGC30 or PSA3(MK) type grade. Again, largely because you just don't see that many of them on there at once. I think it brings MORE bidders out and they bid against each other more vigorously than just 1's and 2's of the cards listed weekly. JMO..........

I agree with all; especially Tom's last point about the number of cards being auctioned at once. It allows a potenitally "new" collector a great insight to the grand variaty of a relitively unknown issue. Or it "shakes-up" the interest in "old" collectors of the issue to expand or update their collection.

By the way -- these are GREAT cards -- from a really neat collection. Personally, I think all Exhibits should have a pin hole, showing they were enjoyed on a daily basis. Also the writing on the backs (in this case the more the better) is great. Here you have someone from the 1920's literally keeping track of the players career, AS IT HAPPENED !!!!!

The lion's share of the many Exhibits I have have some sort of "documentation" on the back. Several have very neat foutain pen statistics of the player wriiten in grid form across the back horizintally. Many document trades, retirements, etc. Adds to the "ambiance" of the card in my view. I have a couple that still retain the friction tab from the machine as well. I rty to stray away from pin or tack holes if possible but that won't keep me from buying one. I have always collected them because I liked them and never really considered whether they were undervalued or not. Adam makes a great point to the fact that several of these are downright "near impossible" to locate.
