Default 1st Kobe Prizm Gold #/10 on ebay sold at $400

I wonder if we look back at this in couple month, we'll think this was a steal or bad buy.

Non auto sold for $400 that's nuts

This product looks great but IMHO the ROI is terrible

even more amazing that this sold for way more than the Kobe /10

LEBRON JAMES 2011-12 UPPER DECK FLEER RETRO METAL UNIVERSE PMG RED 118/150 | eBay

That's why I never understood the 2012 PMG craze

I mean, you have a Kobe Gold refractor /10 selling for $400 and a Lebron 2012 PMG /10 selling for $15,000

Agreed on both statements but I actually think this panini product is decent, box ripping may be tough but thats good for future value.

I think so too. I think refractors of top players will sell decent. With a huge checklist and two per box, you're not going to see a ton of them all over ebay.

Well products really depend on the rookies. So they might drop in price now, but they will go up in case some rookies get hot like blake and lin. If some rookies of this year gets hot, prizm might be the product to buy and hold for couple years for those #/10 gold rc and prizm rcs, and the #/25 autos. Kinda like what derrick rose did for 08/09 topps chrome.

$110 a box to $300+ a box. (maybe more when rose was at peak).

And since this product has the double rc class, double the chance of increasing in value. I can see Anthony Davis, lillard and Kyrie irving prizm rc base going for like $20-50. And gold #/10 would be like $1k.

I agree with above, most products will not hold their value, but after bustin 9 boxes (I still have three more I think the golds and auto prizm parallels will hold their value just like topps used to. Its so rare and it takes sooooo many boxes to find them, just my opinion here. My box breaks are under the basketball box breaks if you wanna see what i pulled. Its not live but will give you an idea of what value really comes out of these things and why I feel how I do.

my guess is that it's a steal if we look back on this a couple months from now, even as prizm drops to $80 a box

There are no green /5

Green version is retail and maybe slightly SP'd but nowhere near /5, probably more like /500

I know for a fact that was a STEAL cause I would have paid more. And still flipped it for much more. This is a $1000 card in my opinion

For people who think wax will go down on this

Gold refractors will sell better then totally green last year

More inserts in this

base rookies will sell well

and main key is

3 golds per case

last yr totally green was 1 per case

Price of that hit $140-150 a box
This will not be under $100 a box for long

I guess I'm in the minority, but I'm not all that excited about the golds... looking forward to the greens though!

The ROI looks terrible now because some sellers jumped the gun with .99 cent one day listings and got smoked. Others set BINs waaaaay too low and gave up some steals. This is a product where you have to list everything in an eBay store and slowly piece out over a few weeks or months. Some big offers will come in when people see how rare the refractors of their favorite players are. I bought 4 boxes only and my first three store sales were $10, $10, and $50 for stuff that MGHT have gotten half that at auction or worse.
