Default Has anyone seen or used this price guide?

I was just wondering if anyone's used or seen this guide and if so,what they thought about it. :

Hake's sports consultant, Philip Garry III has just released the 4-Sport Hall Of Fame Rookie Cards Guide, and it is now available for sale.

After more than 3 years of research and compilation, Philip Garry III marks the release of the Vintage Sportscard Industry’s first, fully pictorial guide documenting the definitive Rookie Card for every single member of the Baseball, Football, Basketball & Hockey Halls of Fame. With this guide in hand, collectors will now be able to seek out Rookie Cards of their favorite players, teams, sports, etc. and, for the first time, the truly serious collector will have an opportunity at trying to complete an entire Hall of Fame Rookie Card set for their favorite team sport. Up until now, collectors could only be assured of identifying Rookie Cards of Post-War Hall of Famers via the current sportscard guides but Pre-War was a nearly impossible task, likely why very few collectors have attempted it.

The beauty of this Rookie Cards Guide is that all 340+ pages are in full color and each sport’s Hall of Fame assemblage has been arranged in alphabetical order. Each HOF’er will have a definitive Rookie Card pictured along with their Name, Designation for the Hall of Fame (i.e.-Player, Manager, Official, Pioneer, etc.), Year & Card Company for the Rookie Card and Value Price Range. Also, and possibly most important of all, every sport’s section begins with the identification of parameters used to decide which Rookie Card would be chosen for each HOF’er. As an added bonus, the back of the guide contains Top 25 lists identifying the “Best” Rookie Cards to own for each of the 4 major team sports.

printed “guides,” if used only for pricing or value, are about as useful as 8-track players. with all of the real-time information on pricing that’s easily attainable, using a print product that was outdated by the time the ink dried doesn’t seem practical.

A guide like that is a great resource but I agree that when it comes to pricing it's best to look at recent sales.

I should have made it clear that I was interested in the guide for the identification of HOFers rookie cards,not for the prices.I was wondering if anyone had seen it and if it was thorough as far as identifying the cards.

What does it list as RCs for the following basketball HOFers:

Kareem Abdul jabbar
Clyde Lovelette
Meadowlark Lemon
Goose Tatum
Ernest Blood

Does it use Exhibit cards? Zeenuts?

I don't think this is a price guide - rather it is a RC-identification guide.

Abdul-Jabbar - 1969-70 Topps
Lovelette - 1957-58 Topps
Lemon - 1971 Harlem Globetrotters
Tatum - 1986 Larry Fritsch Negro Leagues
Blood - 1986 HOF Metallic

Yes to Exhibit cards.

No to Zeenuts - the author did not consider minor league cards for his book.
