Default T206 steve evens -$$$$$$$$$$

What is going on with the T206 Steve Evens Card. This common card price just soared over the last 2 Months. (Check Ebay Sold prices) PSA 3 -Selling in the 3-4 K range -Raw cards selling between 2-3 K.
This card is selling for more than Some Big Name H.O.F from this set.
Like Wojo, Matty and Young.
I sold my PSA 5(-6-8 )Months ago for $250.00.
Looks like we have another Titus epidemic.
Hard to Explain, Unless Someone is trying to Hoard them .But paying those prices is Crazy and most likely will never recoup anywhere his cost if selling down the road.

Regards
John P

Crazy. Lots of ended listings in the last 3-4 days. Before that - things seemed normal?

Whether you believe it or not, it is happening. Try finding one at a reasonable price,

Good luck.

This is crazy, if legit. One could hoard a T206 by just bidding 150% of the value and shutting up. I’ve hoarded cards I especially like before without any impact on market prices, because I shut up and didn’t do this. Supply and demand is irrelevant to pricing; its perception of supply and demand that impacts. If you just shut up you’ll get most of them without much of a premium.

More likely it’s probably some troll not paying for these.

Anyone want to pay only $1K for my T205 Evans? Call me

I'm wondering if it's someone in search of a new variation.

If you look at different examples of the card, you'll notice subtle differences in the placement of the St. Louis in red on his uniform. The red shifts from left - right; this is noticeable where the red intersects with the bat and Evans' left hand, as well as where the first S is in relation to the crease between the S and the t; also where the second S is in relation to the crease after it. This is simply a color shift when the red was printed, as it will also be noticed with the red on his cap and sleeves.

I suppose if you found two cards, one with the red shifted extreme-left, and another with it shifted extreme-right, it might be worthy of note; otherwise, I would consider it simply a printing anomaly; no different than other cards with noticeable color shifts.

I saw the bigger recent sales and sold my duplicate for $150 in late October. I bought it for something like $40 in Aug 2022. It’s not even in particularly good shape (big crease, bad corners, stained back) and a raw Piedmont 350/25. (I kept my better example)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/16639291049...mis&media=COPY

This was a legit auction with multiple bidders.

I don’t know the etiquette of “outing” a buyer, but they are “in the business”. I’m guessing there is something to this (maybe new variation??) but I don’t really care about variants and am happy with tripling my investment in a year.

I took a nap and 2 more sold and 2 more were listed.

I looked in my raw T206 box and have this low grade one. It's not a rare card.

It's not for sale, gang.


This kind of stuff is more fun to me than actually buying the cards.

Let us all show our T206 Evans, so that if the compulsive buying culprit is among us, we can either prove that you can't corner the market when it comes to common T206 cards, or perhaps make an easy, incredibly lucrative sale.

No sure why ChatGPT thinks the card actually depicts Mike Powers. Powers hit righty (unlike the player depicted on the Evans card) and last played for Philly in 1909, when he died tragically from an opening day injury.

I think Steve Evans is kindly doing his best to make collectors’ Christmases brighter. I dug one out, listed it with best offer and it was sold/paid for within an hour. Thank you Mr. Evans Claus!

Geez, I really wish this guy would have picked a different common, like one that I actually have, to stir up this market chaos.
