Where was the self-proclaimed 'lebron collector that vehemently claimed the gold rpa version /23 sold for less and was less desirable than the regular version /99 because of 'set collectors'?

Yeah....

no.

Maybe people have seen asking prices on ebay of over 100k (eg miracle) and think 26k is a steal

Very few people will be able to afford a card like that now. Whether it's 10K or 25K, that's a lot invested into a card thats going to sit in a safe deposit box.

The number to 99 RPA depending on patch and everything goes for 14-18k depending on patch. So I would say the /23 is realistically worth 20-25k maybe a little more depending on patch and auto.

When I started collecting a few years ago, the Lebron 6/23 BGS 9 was sold at 9k or less not long before that. Highest grade back then. But no one knew it would be Lebron's championship team jersey number though.

exactly. like i knew it was a good buy but im like good buy for what, so i can look at it a bit, hold it for 15 years and sell when he retires or down the road for a big profit... sounds great but one problem, 10Gs!!!

That sale for 6/23 was like 3.5 years ago, but too long ago.

In that case, for your sake, hope he is not next Harold Miner.

Buying guys right when they come out goes against everything I stand for as a collector and definitely as a flipper, but the few times it pays off its like really worth it! Imagine having the Exquisite Rose 1/1 or the CP3 or the etc etc etc. Sometimes those are the cheapest when they first come out... that being said the hype around Wiggins may not cause that to apply here.

Let's do Lebron, not quoting arguments on MJ market with vested interests from either side.

whether the bids are real or not is hard to say but the card is worth alot more than what the auction is currently at, a 3 color /99 will bring around 20k+ depending on patch and condition.

Ya you might be right no one can say for sure cause one has not been put up for auction in a long time. Would love to see one on live auction. Maybe this lebron is legit at 26k it might be.

lets say that the price is real, just so we can attempt to argue apples and apples.

i would be inclined to assume anyone shelling out that kind of money for the /23 probably already has the /99. just an assumption, of course, but still - that is a 'get it at all costs'-type card budget obviously.

if you put a gun to my head and made me choose, i think i would wnat the /99 over the /23. i think a lot of people would. like others, i just consider it more of a "true" rc.

i can only imagine, though, that at this point a lot of very wealthy collectors have their copies of the /99 and are kind of bored. what's next? the /23. wouldnt be shocked if a lot of heavy lebron guys who fought each other for some of the /99s are now fighting for the /23s.

i am just speculating on the logic of this type of sale, and im sure there is someone out there who would prefer the /23 to the /99. unless a few of htem just won the lottery, i think it's safe to say that guys paying $20k+ for cards have been paying big money for cards for a while.

can someone educate me on the rainbow of 03-04 lebron base rcs? there is the /99 RPA, there is the /23 RPA, and i have also seen a scan of the 1/1 base non-auto, non-patch RC.

is there a non-auto base apart from the 1/1? what else is out there?

Hey Exquisite Man,

Do you know of anyone selling a 3 color patch /99 in the 14-18K range? I've been interested in replacing the one I sold several years back. Or anyone selling bgs 9.5 for less than the 80+K BIN I see show up from time to time on eBay.

Thanks

i'd guess the odds of you finding a 3 color for less than 20k are slim to none.

I'm absolutely sure you will get a Lebron BGS 9.5 RPA /99 if you are paying just slightly less than 80k. Not sure if that's what you meant. Even if all the owners of 9.5 won't sell, you will get one for far less, just by being patient.

There is also a base gold /25. But no RPA 1/1.

You might me right decent patches probable go for 14-18k in today's market sick 3 color patch nice auto 20-25k easy. That's why I think this lebron on bids might be legit if a 3 color numbered to 99 is worth 20-25k what's a 3 color /23 30-35k maybe more I was off on my 20-25k estimate then but everything depends on patch and auto that's the big thing.

Hey man sorry no I was saying decent patch ones are in the 14-18k range from what I've seen 3 colors I have rarely seen but they would be over 20k for sure.

3 colors rarely seen? I'd say well over half if not well over 3/4 of the Lebron Exquisites out there are legitimate 3 colors.
