BLOWOUTCARDS Market Report: Here's what you need to know
Happy New Years Everyone ! 2012 Was a tremendous year and want to thank all of you for your continued support throughout the year. We are excited about 2013 as we begin to plan and roll out many new initiatives that focus on our customers. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements to come.
As for the Market:
We're currently in a lull for new releases which should make for a continued run on products that are in the marketplace. There are only a few new releases hitting in the next week. Here's a link for the new releases:
2012 Football products continue to be on fire. Bowman Sterling FB and Strata FB were both winners out the gate.
Here are the products that collectors and dealers are chasing:
2012 Bowman Sterling Football
2012 Topps Triple Threads Football
2012 Topps Strata Football
2012 Topps Chrome Football
2012 Topps Finest Football
2012 Topps Platinum Football
2012 Panini Certified Football
2012 Leaf Autographed Jersey Football
2012 Leaf Mini Helmet Football
2012 Topps 1 HTA Jumbos Football
2012 Panini Elite Football
2007 FB products saw a run up the past few weeks. Long term, this could be a solid year to put away. With A. Peterson and C. Johnson as 2 of the best in their position long term, 2007 products will dry up in the years to come and should continue higher as products begin to disappear.
Seeing a lot of buying in 2012 National Treasures FB. A lot of collectors are jumping on the strong Rookie class and going for the highest end products. 2012 Topps Five Star FB also preselling well. Keep an eye on 2012 Panini Prizm FB. Seeing a spike in sales following the Prizm Bskt release.
A lot of focus is on FB but the real move has been behind the scenes in prospect related Baseball products. Seeing a lot of big buying in Bowman Draft, Bowman Chrome, Topps Chrome, and Bowman Platinum Products. 2012 products are especially on a run. Similar to last year, products came out, took a dip and then surged higher in Jan/Feb. Seeing the same kind of action currently. High end 2012 BB also selling very well.
Here are the movers:
2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball
2012 Bowman Draft Baseball
2012 Topps Chrome Baseball
2011 Bowman Chrome Baseball
2011 Bowman Draft Baseball
2012 Topps Update Baseball
2012 Bowman Platinum Baseball
2012 Topps Triple Threads Baseball

2012 Bowman 1 Baseball

We just received the info on 2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball. Looks like Panini MAPP pricing is $400 a Box. $1600 a Case. Here's a link to the sell sheet:
2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball
Seeing a lot of buying this week on 2013 Presells. Topping the list are:
2013 Bowman Hobby Baseball
2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball
2013 Topps Heritage Baseball
It's all about 2012/13 Panini Prizm Basketball. This is the product of the year in Bskt for sure and possibly of any release this year. Gold prices are through the roof. Refractors and Green retail are in high demand and even base cards are selling. You also have the added double Rookie crop. If K. Irving, A.Davis, Lilliard (Base) or any other rookies pop out of this product, there will be huge upside even at currently levels. Keep an eye out also for 2012/13 Panini Threads Bskt and 2012/13 Panini Totally Certified Bskt. These look like they could run also.
More to come...Stay Tuned....
