That's why Jeremy Lin autos were $5-$10 when he was on the bench before his breakout games.
Maybe they learned their lesson with Wang Zhizhi? LOL

If I spent $500+ on Wang Zhizhi and then later sell them for 20 bucks, or keep them at a hige loss... I wouldn't want to pay more than 5 bucks for Lin either, untill he had a great week or two hahaha

But watch with the next Asian player, good or not. He's going to sell high from day one! Until he and Lin both start selling for Wang Zhizhi prices, then good luck to the next Asian player after that trying to get some love HAHAHA

Wait, how did ZhiZhi get in this discussion lol.

I understand he's chinese, but that's just about where the similarities end? Did he ever start a game? That's like, comparing apples to crack whores.

Plus, he's the fobby type, Lin has the american marketing appeal that makes him more valuable in the hobby. He's like that asian buddy you had in college that you could take turns swapping girls with in the frat house.

You can say Jeremy Lin in south africa or Uzbekistan and they'll know who you're talking about. Zhizhi....not so much.

Sell no matter what. After the beginning of "linsanity" teams caught onto him very quickly and shut him down.

If you didn't sell in February, not sure it matters at this point.

Even if jeremy starts sucking, many of his cards will still hold value, just look at Yi jianlian, i am even starting to lose faith on him, but still can't pick up decent cards of his for less than $50.

09-10 UD EXQUISITE YI JIANLIAN 1/1 PATCH JERSEY NUMBER! | eBay

YI JIANLIAN 08-09 Skybox PRECIOUS METAL GEMS *GREEN* #05/50 (05/10) VERY RARE !! | eBay

Yi Jianlian 2007-08 Topps Letterman Booklet Autograph Nameplate Jersey Patch /19 | eBay

If i sold the picture in my profile, i bet i still wouldn't be losing money

I think you should hold. He will put up good numbers on the Rockets because he will get lots of looks. All of the Lin hype and inflation comes from the Chinese market, which will stay up if he plays well. Plus, there is already a large Chinese market that are Rocket fans because of Yao Ming, the first player to really get China into basketball. That, above all else, is why Houston went after Lin.

First buy a Flux Capacitor - that will be a worthwhile investment - Then sell.
