BLOWOUTCARDS Market Report: Here's what you need to know:
Now that the Superbowl has ended, what Now? Here's what we're seeing in the marketplace:
Even with the Ravens win and Flacco receiving the superbowl MVP, we have yet to see a tick up in 2008 FB sales. Ironically, all the attention is still on 2011 FB products. I think many collectors still view Kaepernick as the Big Draw in the 2011 draft class and his performance in the super bowl did not disappoint. He was basically 5 yards from being a super bowl MVP. Could have...should have...would have...whatever the case, the game is over and we move on. Based on sales and what dealers are buying, we're seeing an uptick in 2011 FB sales and a continual buying in 2012 products.
This is usually the case where Football continues to sell right through the beginning of April. This years 2013 NFL draft class is projected to be an overall weak offensive draft. Whether it is or not remains to be seen but the perception out there is that the first round will be loaded with defensive players. Instead, we feel that collectors will continue to break 2012 products with (Luck, RG3 and Wilson ect) and 2011 products with (Kaepernick, Green,Cam,Julio,Demarco,Daulton, ect).
Here are the products that dealers are chasing and collectors are buying:
2011 Panini Contenders Football
