Default The Cup RC Question???

Was curious why Rainbow versions of these Auto/Patch RC sell for and are worth less than the regular ones. The Rainbow versions are numbered lower of teh same rookie card. Any help would be great....Thanks.

Because it is not viewed as a "true" RC

YUP.....The "true" RC is the one in the base set. The lower tier rookie's Gold will probably go for more than the base ARP though.

Not that I can really complain because I'm still happy I got it, but I did pull a Kane gold patch...sure it's not his true rc, but it's all good...except on top of that the patch was all white

Because people follow Beckett's rookie card rules like a bunch of sheep. I think any card issued during a player's rookie year is a rookie card and that's how I do it.

Eventually people will wake up. Example. 1996-97 UD Black Diamond Joe Thornton rookie card, 1:30 packs so 1:900 to pull Thornton. Book value $350-400.

Gold version, 1:30 packs also, but instead of just the SPs, its the whole set, making it closer to 1:18000 packs. Upper Deck claims 50 were made. Beckett doesn't call it a rookie card. Book value $500.

Try finding that card in good shape. Beckett is nuts sometimes.

...rant over.
