One more thing that the new collectors need to keep in mind.
Sales prices will be at "full value" for the first couple weeks, then they will nosedive. Marvel Masters on eBay went to 70% off pretty quickly.
By the time there are 2000 cards left over from the 3000 cards that originally went up for sale, the highest quality best drawings of the popular characters will be gone. The collectors with money are excellent judges of quality art. They really are.
Such a thrilling hobby. Good luck to all.
