Probably wait until he returns or wait until the playoffs.

damn, would love that card, but way out of my price range!

Card shops will only buy it at a price they can make a profit, so you'd get more through ebay.

I'd wait until he comes back, there will be a ton of hype. He won't be playing much, but if he has a few good games that will be a very high selling time for him I'd imagine

What's the going rate for one? I know one guy had them listed for the longest time, starting at $800-odd and then increasing the price to a fair bit more...
What would one be worth now?

That same guy has been relisting for at least 10-12 months and hasn't gotten a single bite at $1100 - the lowest price I think he has ever had them. I bet that card is a $600-750 card at the moment. More when Rose is PWNing again.

personally, if I need the money right now, then no card in my collection would be off limits. at no time is my real life need for money greater than having a sick pc.

as for selling that card, i'd wait until he comes back if you can. until he steps on the court, i feel as if most fans and collectors have put him on the backburner. make sure if you do auction if off that it ends before or during that first game back though, just in case he has a bad game. the hype for his return will be huge.

Personally dn't like the card too much, those auto on patches never have very sharp autos. Also the patch is only barely 2 colors. And to be honest, derrick rose market is already high considering he hasn't played for so long. The market right now is almost the same as last year when he was healthy and playing. I think the fact that he "might" be back soon already have collectors paying more than they should for his cards. So if you hold tli he comes back, u might get like $50 more but its not going to double the value on u.

Also supply and demand, everyone else holding til rose til he comes back so the supply is low. U wait til he comes back and everyone starts listing their rose, then the demand may not be as high.
