Default Whats the catch ?? Isaiah Thomas Green Prizms

I just picked up from Ebay
Isaiah Thomas RC Green Prizm Base 10$
Worthy Green Base 5$
Bill Walton Green Base 5$

I thought it was a nice price but am shocked that no one else bid on any of these.
What am I missing?

Thanks

The big name players and sought after inserts prices are rising.

But the middle of the field base and rookies are pretty easy to pick up for some nice deals.

Yes
Just looking at completed auctions on eBay and it looks
that outside of 10 to 15 players and USA inserts the greens are dropping fast.
Agree?
Reasons?
I am a newbie so no feel for trends

The top 10 to 15 are the only ones who get any hobby love. Some of the ones who are being highly sought after now do not fetch near the amount normally as what they do now (one prime example is melo, his hot start has people trying to buy up his knicks stuff). The USA insert set is highly sought after as it was basically the second coming of the dream team, people are attempting to build sets of this. This being such a popular product, and also being the first year of this product, the value will most likely hold up if not increase. The main factor is going to be how much panini overproduces this product in coming years.

probably because they are not sellign good in auctions, seller goes checks completed listings, doesnt want the cards so they list them for what they sold for recently in auction style. I know I sold a worthy for 4.75 or soemthing auction style. Sold a isaiah thomas finalist green for 2 bucks, oscar robertson green for 2 bucks. Not many people do regular auctions anymore you would think people would give u a bid but they do not.

Thanks for the feedback.
I think I am just puzzled because of the fairly large swings.
Just taking a look at Magic Johnsons (no scrub obviously) green prizm that I was trying to get. A week to 2 weeks ago they were selling for 20 and up even in auctions, now they have been selling for under 10.
I guess what I am wondering is if it will swing back the other way or its peaked. At least when it comes to the next tier player because the big cards seem to still be exploding. Overall the value is higher but all the value is much more in the top of the pyramid now.

I think the Rookies are the only ones that will have value.

And obviously the big stars currently playing.

You got a nice deal on that IT

People were overpaying to make sets because they thought they were so extremely limited ... and now are finding out there are more than enough out there...so prices drop drastically.

Uh no paul. As much as I respect you as a fellow blowout member I will have to disagree with you on your above statement... there are at least 20 rcs i can name for you that have had no more than 8 copies show up on ebay... honestly that is pretty limited considering how much retail is being opened nowadays...

I just put the rookie set together so i am sure of this...

Actually, I think the Thomas green is expensive. His RC auto is like $3. However, I do agree that it looks WAY better than any of those sticker autos.

I agree with this, people were saying 50ish... I am thinking more like 100ish greens per base/insert. Panini will probably never let us know though.

The value is still in the base rookies in my opinion. They are cheap.
