Most prospectors buy cards to make money, whether it is to stockpile, buy a few and flip when the time is right, whatever. I don't see how there can be much money made on buying a base auto at $100.

There have been very few folks whose base autos started at $100 or over.

Harper, and then who?

If they don't dip down that far, it doesn't really concern me that much, there are much smarter buys out there right now then Buxton.

I think he will be good, but we'll see if the market can hold these prices for base autos.

I mean his prices right now are higher than Taveras, that doesn't seem quite right does it?

was just curious. For some reason I think they come down to $80. But I suppose during an off season and with there being so many base, they will fall below $80

He gets to face Maples tonight, so his average will drop a few points.

I don't care how good he is and he is good, I just don't see prices sustaining north of $80 for very long. He is a fair ways from the majors and once the masses tire and move to the next flavor of the month, prices will drop and prospectors will swoop in. In the off season I bet it settles around $45-60. Bundy and Starling did the same thing last season and they were about on the same hype level.
