Default Advice for 09 Chrome Rip and Flip

Hey guys getting ready to actually bust my first Chrome case right at release and am looking for the best way to flip this. I am going to keep the Browns stuff but other than that I am thinking of selling any complete sets I can make and then any sets of Inserts I can make. I am also then trying to decide between selling individual rookie lots or putting everything into team lots. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Nate

Always a crap shoot. Zig whlie some guys Zag. It all depends. As far as base, I'd try the team set route, but with the way way Chrome is set up, you may be better doing player lots since sorting by number is much easier than team (at least for me). Early on refractors sell really well, and if done correctly, even big lots can work well.

ive heard that complete sets sell well too. if you can put together a refractor set, i would think the first few would bring big money

I don't flip Topps Chrome, it's a set I collect for myself, but if I pull any nice patch/autos I'll sell those to help pay for my set. Good luck with it! some of the refractors should do ok, but for me Football sales have been very weak so far this year.. Hopefully it picks up when the season starts.

As tempting as it always is to try flipping everything right away, I would try saving some of it for a few weeks into the regular season. For example, an Xfractor could go from a $10 card to a $30 card with a few good weeks by say a rookie like Donald Brown...

I recommend selling anything that is probably near its peak of value

Any Sanchez,Stafford, or Crabtree would probably be smart to sell immediately.

Complete sets do sell well soon after the release, but team sets are probably more worth it even though some teams probably won't sell well.

Did Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco sell better around the time of their team's playoff pushes, or upon first release last season? I wonder if maybe Sanchez or Stafford would actually sell better later if they have any sort of success.

Flacco sold way better in the later part of the season. Same with Ryan, but key with those guys was that they did not start the season (nor where expected to). But with guys that already have the hype and solid sales, now is the time to sell them. Once sales start dropping, its a double edged sword, first few weeks you may be able to sell a card that after a month into the season wont sell. Look at Tyler Thigpen. In 07 you couldn't sell it, then mid 08 they sold really well. Timing is everything, but the magic ball never tells you who will be the key rookies each week. Some guys do just that, keep everything not selling for top $$, then watch the games and during the weekend list cards for those guys that are doing well.

I tend to list on the weekend as players do well. That tends to get me top dollar for my cards as interest will peak.

Ryan and Flacco both started Week 1.
