Default Impact of the Card

Posted By: peter chao

So far I haven't noticed any changes to the vintage card market from the publication of The Card...I suppose we won't notice anything until the Mastro Auction at the National. What do you guys think, has the Card had any impact on prices so far?

Well, I spent $12.95 on the book, so that's $12.95 less that I have to spend on cards.

The Card has only gotten into Bay Area bookstores in the last few weeks, maybe that's the reason we haven't seen much impact.

Impact?


My prediction: None.
It may impact the next sale of that card, but I doubt it.

Yes, the book is tearing up the bestseller charts right now (#6000 in Amazon sales) so I'm certain that everyone is looking askance at their Wagners and wondering if those, too, might have been cut from a sheet.

to prove "the card" is trimmed is impossible. like anything else in life,if you can find an expert to claim it is,there will be another EXPERT to counter claim it is not. unless "the card" turns up in a PRO holder one day, we will never know, and its legendary status in the hobby will remain.

So Jeff, you don't see it sliding up the bestseller list?

It ranks higher than my first book , but a couple of years ago it may have been higher.

That looks like a very scholarly work. They usually aren't the best sellers. You need a little sex and violence to get it to sell!

I knew I should have included the long-rumored photos of the pre-trimmed Sanskrit text. You are right Barry; scholarly books do not traditionally sell a whole lot of copies outside of university libraries and a small field of specialists. It was a self-deprecating joke. Actually, for a scholarly book, it has done pretty well. The publisher tells me they were happily suprised and have encouraged that second volume I have ben talking about.
