Default Derrick Rose...buy/sell/hold?

What do you guys think? I have a few D-Rose cards and he's off to a pretty fast start...is this a good time to buy, sell or hold?

If hold...do you think his prices are just peaking and that it could go higher?

Among other D-Rose cards, I have these 3 that I'm wondering what to do with!

I'm holding on D Rose, but I'm from Illinois. I don't think his stuff will drop off any time soon because there is not much new D Rose stuff out there outside of his rookie year stuff. If you are concerned, maybe sell2 and keep 1, or sell 1 and keep 2.

Yeah, I see. He was awesome last night against the Knicks and I truly feel that this is his breakout (super, super stardom) year...so I know all 3 cards can get me some nice coin now...but I'm not familiar enough with the NBA market (I'm a baseball guy) to gauge when it's a good time to sell etc.

Hmm....

The Bulls should be a playoff team, and people are predicting a breakout year from Rose. The safe bet would be to seel soon based on hype. I do feel like D Rose is somewhat an injury risk because he plays all out.

There are just so many good young Point Guards in the league, and more on the horizon.
If Chris Paul ends up with the Knicks, then there is no way Rose gets voted to start in an All Star game. He plays so hard, like Penny Hardaway did, that he might end up injured before to long.

If you want to treat a rookie card like a "stock", then sell high and not on what the future might or might not hold.

So, do you guys think right now is the "high" point of his card values?

you have some nice rookie autos there, and the patch in teh hot prospects is esp obnoxious. personally i think if you were AIMing to sell eventually, one way or another, then right now is as good of a time as any. if you actually liek and PC the guy, then you can hope he only gets better. i agree with most of the reasons stated above

No, a championship with him front and center would lead to a major boom in pricing which is why he is one of only a couple current players I buy and patiently wait on.

Agree with this -

If he is a PC guy I think it's definitely worth saving - but if you were going to sell eventually, meaning lets say in the next 6-12 months, then now is definitely a good time since he has started so well. If you are banking on a Bulls title run to push him higher then that's a risky proposition.

Rose will always be popular - but he does play a crowded position as Paul is healthy, Wall, Rondo etc...

Good points guys!

Tough, tough. He's not a PC guy so I may sell off my lower end ones (Premier and threads first) so as to still cash in on his recent hype and ponder on those 3 above!

BTW, his dunk last night was SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sorry to burst that bubble there, but championship will have to be at least 3 years away. a core of rose/noah/boozer simply isnt a match for lebron/bosh/wade. i hate the heat and dislike all those players, but realistically speaking, they have the best chance. if you are waiting for rose to have a durant-like leap, then it's happening before our eyes so his cards are def good value right now, but if you're waiting for CHAMPIONSHIP or even the Finals, you're gonna stash those for 3-5 years... and even then, not sure how much extra you'd get than right now. maybe 25-40% more than now, since Rose is already a popular player and a #1 pick to begin with, very hard to improve MUCH further value-wise IMO

Save SAVE SAVE them. Rose cards are not so expensive yet, you can still get a few at a value price. unlike Durant whos cards command a high price now, its a stock basicaly it can go up, or down depending on whos popular ATM. And ATM its hard to give Lebrons away LOL...

Thanks for the responses...looks to be a bit mixed one way or the other.

Can anyone give a guesstimate on the possible sale prices of my 3 cards?

I am a Bulls fan and Rose collector and I would hold onto them for now.

If anything, wait until Boozer comes back in a few weeks and sell then.

Btw, his dunk last night was insane!!

You could always sell 1-2 and hold some of the rest. It's wise to sell some of your investment, in case he gets injured or if his production goes down.

I'm sure prices will dip from what they are now at some point in the season.

I think the biggest factors in your decision should be how bad do you need the money NOW and can you afford to be wrong if you hold and the market heads south. Based on your replies it sounds to me like you should sell at least a few pieces to hedge your bets a little so IF his stuff is at peak levels you're at least into the pieces your holding onto cheaper. Think of it like you have X amount of dollars into all of your Rose cards together and then think of how you can be into whichever you decide to keep at the cheapest dollar amount possible. This has worked out well for me over the years. Nobody, including me, is always right about the premium time to sell so you always want to be into whatever you hold onto as cheap as possible.
