Exclamation Grant Hill SILHOUETTES.... Sold US $2,370.67!!!



Panini Preferred Crown Royale Silhouette Prime Grant Hill Auto Jumbo Patch /10 | eBay

This is the Silhouettes "Prime" version, which is serial numbered out of 10 made. The regular jersey version is #'d to 25.

This price surprises me because Rose and Kobe "Prime" cards are numbered to only 5 and have sold for big bucks, but this Hill is pretty close to their prices, while Hill has double the print run...

Whatever the case, that's a pretty high price

Grant Hill has very little in the way of high-end autographs and has a large, fervent collector base. This doesn't surprise me at all.

Yeah, he said it was out of 10, and the other two were out of five, so it would be double the print run.

Can't believe I'm actually defending sportitupcards, but the prime print run on the kobe is 5. The prime print run on the hill is 10. That is double the print run.

I agree with you. I think this card is beautiful and if I never saw Kobe and Rose "Prime" prices, I wouldn't think twice about the price... I guess there are more die hard Hill fans? Doesn't surprise me too much though, it's a great card, just when I compare to other players with lower print run.

Kobe/10? Oh ok, got them confused... yeah sounds about right, it was Durant then.

But still, Durant is a great player and I would imagine a lot more collectors.

Btw, CONGRATS!!!

Pretty good product from Panini

I am hoping we see more Rodman (Spurs) autos. I want one, but not at that price. I've seen the jersey version /10.

I actually think that was a steal for being a /5 patch version.

None of my friends believed it was an actual autograph card so I ended up taking it. Sold it for $200 and bought some SLU's - lol

When I was 16 I worked at a card shop and we had some packs for $.50. I bought 1 and pulled the same Hill. Ended up selling it on ebay.

Great memories. I need to pick one up.
