My guess is that $30 BIN is too low.

For Broxton? It might end up being a little too high.

It's on an acetate stock - like a film negative.

My hunch would be it's too low as well, but we'll see. Might be one of those things that trends up further away from release for a while as people start trying for the set and get competitive.

$22 is about right for someone like Broxton. I assume a clear of someone like Jeter may bring in over $200.

Agree on both accounts. The cards are alright, thought they would be "more clear", but I think they are going to go crazy either way.

I'd assume that a comp value would be the #ed to 10 silver slates from last year, no?

I'm guessing these cards are in the "Scan/Pics don't do justice" group.

Before we hear that topps stole this idea from Leaf pure, keep in mind UD had them in 2005 USA baseball and several companies as inserts in 90s.


I love the look, but then again I miss ALF and other 1990s shows

Yeah.

$22 seems a bit high but not terrible. Think about what a 1/1 wood or platinum of Broxton would go for. Like $60 maybe early on? Heck, his 2010 Update platinum 1/1 just went for $14.
