Default Why are these so low



1:20 Cases... CASES? That's insane! Why are some selling around 80 or 100?

Lesson to be learned is that just because a manufacturer has made something artificially scarce does not mean that there will automatically be high demand for it.

There are hundreds of 1/1 cards which sell for under $5 because nobody wants them....

I think for alot of Panini's so called HTG inserts, i suggest keeping them and gamble that they will be worth more 10-20 years down the line when most of us need to pay retire.

I'm chasing the set, and the prices are all over the map. I'm sure I overpaid on a few of them, but then I won a Wade for $40 and a Gasol for $5 today.

another attempt to replicate a trend where HTG inserts become a chase. but right now its more like taking any random insert set before production, choosing as a group at a candle light dinner that it be the chase insert and then making sure its inserted at a rare rate. yet, it looks and feels like any other insert.

for me, a chase insert would be something serial numbered, fancy looking and really HTG. bc they made spectrums nearly one per box last year and now one per case this year doesnt change the fact that its still not going to fetch a higher price (even though on ebay its selling relatively better than the last few years).

The real question is why is a non-auto, non-game used, non-numbered card 1:20 cases? This is why I don't buy Panini..it's a rip-off.

Just because there isn't a serial number doesn't mean these cards aren't just as rare as the gold Prizms everyone is paying an arm and a leg for. I've seen multiple Durant and Kobe gold Prizms, and I have yet to see one copy listed for sale of either of their HOF inserts. I know they aren't as flashy, but I'm a big fan of them. I'll take a LeBron HOF insert any day of the week over a green Prizm.

Because it looks like a base card?

Maybe in the future it will be worth much more...

Because not every rare card released has to have an auto or a piece of game used material on it. Some of the games most iconic cards aren't numbered, aren't signed and don't have a piece of GU material in them.

I really like the look of these cards and I managed to get my main PC player for a decent price and its the only copy I've seen of it so far. Id reckon there are only about 5-10 copies of each player made.

You couldnt have picked a different word to describe the box break?

To answer your question, it doesnt matter if it is rare, it matters if there is demand. You cant tell this card from a subset.

Listen to him. Sell it to me for $20.

Did you really ask this question and you do baseball? What are the odds on a purple ice? Or a superfractor of a non rookie/non auto in bdpp?

Theyre ugly. What is the point of taking a insert that looks like a one per pack card out of past and present and making it 1:20 cases? I like the idea, but the execution is turrible.

It's that much right now cause set collectors will buy them to complete sets. Give it a few months and it will be another $1-$5 card being shilled

I gotta agree with MikeMamba, They look like base cards. Maybe if they stamped them with serial number it would more interesting or something lol.

Why must a card have an autograph or jersey-swatch to produce in limited quantities?
