Default Need Help - Selling Old Boxes

I have some factory sealed boxes of some 03/04 UD basketball products and I was wondering if now is a good time to unload them. I have two boxes of each of the following products:

SPX
SP Authentic
UD Glass
Black Diamond

I was just thinking that they might get a premium right now since Lebron just got MVP and he and Carmelo are making playoff runs. Also, Wade had a nice bounceback season this year. Thanks for your help.

Wait for King James to get a championship or two, or wait 10 years.

The prices for those CANNOT drop. It's impossible.

I kept 2 boxes each of bowman and topps chrome myself, not really looking to sell until i need to.

if you can wait til lebron goes into the HOF, that would be the best time

They can go down, but in all honesty they should go up in value. Biggest thing that will hurt them is if its a Lebron redemption.

I am kicking myself for not saving a couple of boxes of Bowman and Topps Chrome too. I guess I can't complain...

Keep them until you need to sell them. I have 6 or 8 boxes of SPX somewhere and I won't sell until I need to. Bad thing is, these were from a case that I started opening when they came out...and I didn't pull the RC Jersey Auto /750 (I think they came 1/case) from the boxes I opened. So there could be a LeBron in there...or a Darko!

I don't think any of the big three were redemptions in any of those products, but I am not 100% sure. I know for sure there weren't any redemptions for Lebron, Melo and D-Wade in SPX and SP Authentic. I don't think there were any, but I'm not sure about UD Glass and Black Diamond. Anyone know for sure?

Jordan auto's were redemptions in most of those products - I know for sure Jordan was a redemption in Glass and that the Lebron auto's were live in the product as I pulled one of each of them...
