Makes me want to check the pop report.

Already did. 597 PSA & 2297 BSG. Total of 2894 graded examples.

Now I have zero idea if this is true and perhaps someone else may know but if you have almost 3k graded examples of an iconic RC are maybe 30% graded? 20%? more? I would have to imagine he's one of the higher % of cards graded to ungraded in modern collecting.


% Graded. Total
50%. 5,788
40%. 7,235
30%. 9,646
20%. 14,470
10%. 28,940


Anybody have a guess? Mine would fall near 30% for maybe 10,000 copies. But again that's my guess.

So why just the YG and not the FWA?

Easily 10000 + with all the retail...

Hockey is so ungraded compared to any other sport.
The casual collector in Canada would never grade.

FWA doesnt have the pedigree and could be discontinued at anytime (not likely, but possible). No retail also hurts FWA

YG's are available to all, in all formats as well

FWA have been around longer really (early 90's yg don't count) and have a higher pedigree along with many set collectors.

If you think FWA will get discontinued then you might as well think CUP rpa's will get discontinued. Technically YG's have been discontinued thanks to E-packs so even less reason to buy them.

The true value of FWA to YG should 10x like in a perfect example of Mikko Rantanan. YG $2-$3.... FWA $20-$30....

Crosbys YG books at $175-300 (For now) so his FWA would come in at $1750-3000, or as ebay auctions have skyrocketed lately, FWA would be around $4000-7000. Starting to vaguely approach The Cup numbers there.

I remember saying back in the beginning of the McDavid craze that I'd rather have Crosby YG at $150-250 than McDavid at that price..... Looks like I'm not the only one to get to that conclusion. I think in a way since McDavid ever came out it has dramatically shuffled values of cards.... If Ovechkin wins a Cup this year you'd think his YG goes up as well.

many many key rookie cards across all sports are much higher today, then they were a year ago.

ive not followed hockey in a few years, so i am really confused how UDs e-pack works when it comes to Young Guns.

WHERE do the Young Guns that are electronically pulled come from? Are they printed up IN ADDITION to the runs that are produced for the physical product?

This is INSANE. 2 guys bid $400 over the 3rd place guy? These prices can not be real.

Prices are being manipulated. Anyone buying a Crosby YG at these prices is in for a sad awakening.

This card has been $300 for the last 12 years, now all of a sudden it doubles (and might even triple) in the span of two months? No thanks, I'll sit back and watch the carnage from where I sit.

If you own one, now is the time to sell.
