You asked for thoughts, so here is mine: When I clicked on your blog, I was anticipating learning more about Bond Bread cards, but all I found was a sales pitch encouraging me to invest in them.

In my opinion I don't view any baseball card as... "a safe investment". If considered investments I'd have to say they are speculative with some being more or less speculative than others.

As to undervalued cards I don't see your choice as being a great one, the issue is not a very popular one, the image is in black and white, the size is non-standard, etc.

Personally, I think the T206 Johnson portrait is the next to move higher in price and I have been buying a few here and there for speculative purposes.

Again just my opinion.

"The only thing keeping this card from blowing up is knowledge.*The majority of novice collector’s do not even know that this card exists.* Once it becomes more mainstream people are going to want it"

Thanks to this article, I now have the knowledge! Got my eye on the PSA 3 ending in 3 days. With a rock bottom starting price of 2900 I hope to steal it!

Back around 2010 Legendary sold them individually. They were graded in the mid range. Most sold in the 6/7K area. Anyone else remember?

Since we're talking about 1947 Jackie Robinson Bond Bread cards, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if this card that I have qualifies as one of them. There are a couple of these on eBay, but they have square corners, and my understanding is that the square cornered Bond Bread cards without borders aren't vintage ...

Chris that isn't the card I was talking about, but that is authentic. It wouldn't qualify as it doesn't have any prominent advertising.

The PSA 3 guys is going for $2900 doesn't qualify as I said reasonable prices. if I. Go look at recent raw sales. Many are quite affordable. Anyone that is putting together this set I'm sure has had their eye on these cards. Would you like to chime in on what you've noticed in regards to pricing?

I personally think that eventually this bond bread card is going to get close to if not surpass the leaf.

Much like the 51 bowman mantle has taken off, the portrait has a chance to move much higher in the very near future.

Just a blog and my opinion, but I do know my Jackie.

Robert made a good point about the card being black and white. I did a quick search on Google for the most valuable baseball cards, and curiously, they're all in color. Yet there are tons of really rare black and white cards out there, including many of baseball's biggest stars. The most valuable cards all seem to be "relatively common" cards with bright colors that are in fantastic condition. So a beat-up black and white card seemingly has two strikes against it. By the way, I collect all sorts of different baseball-related stuff, and there are always tremendous bargains to be found for black and white items ...
