    Beckett is just plain crazy

    The 2020 topps #392 Luis Robert bv went down overnight. From 5 to 4 bucks. Try buying one for that.

    They literally have the Bowman rc priced higher at 6. They are selling for just a couple of bucks each. Almost everybody wants flagship rookies. Im glad I just collect and stash. Let my kids sell it all when im dead.

    Beckett has been dead for a long time. Works well as a checklist but not as far as market pricing. Pulled a Robert gold out of Topps ser 2....books 20 with a down arrow. Sells for 250+

    Collecting rookies is not that simple.....most don't make it......I use to be pretty good... like most people ... with Mike Trout or Albert Pujols or Ichiro first started I collected their cards! After that I became an inset collector of low serial cards from the 1990 till now....maybe one day...the Luis card will be worth over 1,000.00 or .99 cent only time will tell his history. Best regards, David

    Beckett is way behind the times when it comes to pricing. They appear not to use sale data at all to come up with their values. Good guide to use for base/inserts etc. but the price going down on Robert makes no sense at all to me. His Topps RC should be the highest booking base RC he has by a far margin.

    This is one of the reasons why I dont use BV when pricing cards to sell. While I haven't made many sales here, have been having success through other outlets with that approach.
    Always looking to make a deal. CARDS for TRADE
    Work M-F 7-6 and visit the PO after work.


    Have the following Cards for Sale: 2020/2019/2018/2017/2016/2015 and older

    The thing that I don't understand and it really gripes me is that they can't even keep their own prices straight. The prices on OPG and the magazine are consistently different. AAAARRRRRGGGGG!!!!!

    Cal Ripkens that I don't have (3,112 different Ripkens) , Joe Mauer, Killebrew, Feller, Twins refractors. I'll also consider better RCs

    Prime Patches: 77/77 100% only complete set in the world (all #'d to 150 or less) Overall collection includes: 29 different laundry tags,5 button holes,& 227 different autographs & auto variations.

    Is that not a product of timing?
    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.

    You tell me??? When you have the most recent published issue and it differs (and sometimes vastly different) from what is on the OPG I'm confused.

    My point is that the "most recent published issue" lags in time behind the OPG. How long that lag is, I do not know. Now, whether that accounts, at least in part, for differences in values is, in my opinion, is a logical explanation. I cannot speculate about "vastly different" values, but also point out that the cards referenced are all of "hot prospects" where there is always volatility in value.
    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.

    Anyone know what Beckett is using these days (of COVID-19) for there pricing trends? I think they used to use sales from card shows and conventions. I'm guessing that has been limited with the various states moving thru as 'hot zones'. And I guess that is why everyone now is using eBay, Amazon and COMC as pricing guides. Or just how bad does someone want a given card? Also, what impact is this shortened baseball season having on card values?

    Priority is 1. Mickey Mantle PC, 2. Vintage 3. NY Yankees (Topps Only)

    4. Mantle, Mays, Clemente, Aaron or Ryan Topps Finest or Chrome reprints
    5. Topps RCs or reprints 6. Topps Reprints Original Backs
    Please contact with trade and want lists
